What Sets Us Apart?
We are always very conscientious of our clients’ expenses and we work with contractors that provide quality work at a fair price. We do not charge a fee to prepare properties for tenants, we never charge a surcharge on repair work and we file unlawful detainers and appear in court as part of the management fee.
We have established checks and balances to ensure the accuracy of vendor invoices. When invoices are received, our Property Manager reviews each one to ensure the accuracy of charges and the work completed. It then goes to the accounting department for final review and payment.
Our communication is tailored to the needs of our clients. We use a state-of-the-art online software system, Propertyware, which houses our client’s important documents and accounting ledgers. It allows for direct bank payment to owners and rent payments from tenants. We can directly communicate with our owners and tenants through this system.
All contractors hired to perform work on a property must be insured; and licensed when required. Plus, we have established relationships with a variety of vendors to include flooring, handymen, painters, plumbers, roofers and other tradesmen.
We regularly attend trade shows, educational seminars and conventions that keep us up-to-date with the latest laws, technology and trends for Leasing and Management.

VHS Property Management will provide and handle getting all the leasing documents signed with the new tenant. We use the standard Virginia Association of Realtors Lease with added addendums. The first Addendum tightens accountability and adds additional criteria to further protect you, the property owner. For example, insurance, handling of smoke detectors, instances of power outage, pets and more. The Second, Security Deposit Addendum, is added to remind tenants of their responsibilities upon move-out.
We market your property through our local Multiple Listing Service which feeds out to many top real estate sites on the web. In addition, we cooperate with other Realtors to rent your home at no extra charge to you. This means we have access to even more agents to get your property rented fast. We also offer Property Showings that include the use of special lockboxes on vacant homes that allow potential renters timely access to view the property 7 days a week which leads to faster occupancy.
When you are ready to rent your property, we will prepare a market analysis to determine the best price for your home. We have a meticulous method for determining the value of your home. Our analyses are seasonal and on demand. We compare similar properties that have rented in the past and depending on the time of year, prices may be adjusted accordingly. We also factor in the number of current rentals available in a given area. Our goal is always to get top dollar for your rental property and to attract the best tenants.

We use a standard rental application process and we screen tenants using a scoring matrix with the minimum being 12 points. There are several categories within our system that allow for point scoring and the total points are tallied at the end. This method allows us to use several factors to determine eligibility, and provides a more inclusive rental application process. Cosigners are also welcome however, certain factors such as past rental debts and evictions result in an automatic denial of the application.
