Working with AED Management you'll benefit from partnering with a local professional company that is solely dedicated to making your life as a landlord hassle free.

Leasing is one of the most important aspects of managing an income property. Locating the perfect tenant and maintaining that relationship is one of the most valuable services we can offer our clients. Our leasing agents manage the lease signing process with approving tenants using our professional prepared leases and ensuring all proper contracts are executed. Rents and deposits are collected in accordance with legal and financial regulations then recorded on your online owner account. Finally, a thorough walkthrough is conducted and conditions are documented at the time of move-in.
Maintenance is a necessary expense to owning a rental property and the return on your investment can be significantly impacted without cost-effective, preventative care. We require all tenants to abide by the rules/regulations particular to the property and conduct quarterly inspections to ensure your investment is being treated with the utmost respect. When handled by us you'll save time and money and ensure repairs are completed in a professional and timely manner by a trustworthy maintenance team. We have an extensive network of contractors, vendors and in-house staff to handle property maintenance around the clock.
Looking to do a small home renovation? We’re here to help connect with you with some of our most trusted contractors. At no cost to you, we will provide cost estimates and conduct a complimentary site walk with our contractors to discuss scope of work. In the event that there is a home renovation scheduled, we will assist in coordinating with contractors and tenants to make sure your project gets completed efficiently with little to no hassle to each party.
For each day your property is vacant, that’s money out of your pocket. Professional management costs are easily offset by shorter vacancy times. We spend valuable time and resources on advertising your property on the most viewed home rental platforms and professional multiple listing services. A professional REALTOR “For Rent” yard sign can be included and adds exposure to capture drive-by prospective tenants if you choose. Our leasing agents respond promptly to inquiries 24-7 and show your home in the best possible light.

"I have worked with AED for over a year now. Anita has been great from the start, from helping find new tenants for the apartment to handling issues that have popped up with the unit. She has always been proactive in handling problems and communicating them to me as they arise. I would highly recommend AED to anyone looking for a property manager in the area."
- Al D. (Bethesda, MD)
"I have been using AED Asset Management for a little over 2 years to manage my 2,000 sqft rowhouse in Northeast Washington, DC. Anita is very responsive but also does a good job of taking the initiative to address the small stuff without the need for hand holding. I have also been impressed with her broad network of contractors that she has been able to leverage to quickly attend to issues at a good price."
-Ryan L. (Portland, OR)
"AED is top-notch in all aspects of professional property management. Would highly recommend. They stepped in when my previous property manager let vacancy and ongoing maintenance expenses spiral out of control. AED came in and within two months, secured new leases for multiple units, helped get maintenance requests under control, and tightened up financial reporting. My tenant relations and income have improved significantly. Very satisfied and would highly recommend."
