Property Management Services

If you own a property, let Nest DC find a tenant that calls your home their own.

We believe that great properties attract great tenants and by design, happy modern dwellers are better neighbors. Good neighbors lead to great neighborhoods and strong neighborhoods are better for our city!  That's what Nest is all about.  

This is a nuanced field and doing it well requires intuition, patience, good people skills and a sense of humor. It’s also good to know how to fix a toilet in a pinch. We have that skill too. And more. 

We have invested in very sophisticated systems and a highly energentic and talented staff to ensure that we deliver outstanding results for every owner.  Every time.  From the moment we meet a client, we strive to over deliver.  Our attention to detail is our signature and we work hard to ensure both clients and tenants have a one-of-a-kind experience when working with the Nest DC team.  

We offer a full range of property management services that include: 

  • Professional photos 
  • Extensive property marketing including website features, craigslist, facebook, twitter, Trulia, weekly newsletters, blogs, community & professional listservs and paid advertising
  • Evening, Saturday and daytime showings

Our rates for leasing and marketing are 90% of one full month's rent if you retain Nest for monthly mangement. Monthly management fees are 8% per month for condo and co-op units and 10% per month for houses and rowhomes.  Fees for property management, in most cases, are tax deductable. We also think they help you sleep better through the night!  Please note, we do not offer management services in Virginia and we are no longer taking on new buildings or associations for management. We also don't manage furnished rentals but would be happy to refer you to another company if that's what you need!

We found a perfect balance between positive cash flow, and positive experiences for tenants and for owners.  We look forward to hearing from you to schedule an appointment to tour your home and answer your questions.  Just send an email to or call us at 202-540-8038!
