Choosing the Right Property Management Company for Your Needs

Your real estate investments are too important to trust to just anyone. Whether you own a multifamily property in the DC metro area or are looking for joint venture opportunities, you need partners and affiliations who will add to the overall value of your investment. Oculus Realty, LLC is a property management firm with the experience, industry insights and real estate-related affiliations needed in today’s ever-changing economy.

Managing real property over a half century old in a highly rent-regulated market – like the Washington, DC metropolitan area – is challenging. But is that does not preclude our property management firm from providing residents with service excellence, using creativity and technology to do the job more effectively and changing the rules if need be.

In the Business of Service

Other property management firms may tell you they are in the real estate business. However, at Oculus Realty, LLC, first and foremost, we are in the service business. This mindset applies to how we treat you and the residents in your apartment community.

Founded upon a set of guiding principles that fosters a culture of performance and accountability, Oculus’s mission is to create value through service excellence.

Oculus Realty, LLC serves our clients with a high level of dedication and fiduciary responsibility. All of our employees are trained to think and act like an owner so your interests are the driving force of our actions. As a multifamily real estate owner himself, our CEO, K. David Meit, CPM® personally understands the goals of objectives of our DC metro clients.

To best serve your residents, we hire “nice” people for on-site staff then train them to provide a high level of service through the development of technical skills – from answering the phone to completing a variance report to fixing a leak. Nothing at an Oculus property happens by accident.

Freedom through Technology

As a newer property management firm, Oculus Realty, LLC is not tied to older, legacy operating systems. This allows us to leverage newer technology to better serve you and the residents of the properties we manage.

Our firm utilizes cutting-edge technology to increase net operating income in numerous ways, including:

  • Requiring our management team and service staff to carry smart phones so they can receive and send email, text messages and work orders wirelessly and in real time
  • Leveraging social media like Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare to drive resident retention and referrals
  • Using property management software to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs
  • Featuring QR codes on our business cards and print advertising to bring online information quickly to residents, prospects, clients and other stakeholders
  • Using iPhones and iPads to provide timely information to overcome prospect objections quicker and close deals anywhere on property
  • Designing our website to leverage the power of the Internet to drive qualified prospect traffic and deliver the highest level of customer service and communication

Enjoy the freedom and revenue that proper use of technology can yield. Choose Oculus Realty, LLC as your Washington, DC metro property management and advisory firm.
