Setting the Standard for Professional Property Management through our Team Approach

        SJA Property Management (SJA) was created to provide homeowners and real estate investors with a personalized, professional, and sophisticated full-service real estate offering. Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of professional real estate and property management services and integrity in the industry. SJA Property Management is dedicated to protecting our clients’ equity, managing our clients’ risk, and optimizing our clients’ investment performance.

We understand that there are numerous property management companies in the area, and how difficult it is to make the right selection for your property.  Most of these companies promise similar services and cost roughly the same, at least upfront.

At SJA Property Management we are committed to going above and beyond for our clients.  One key difference is that our staff, managers and ownership, truly have a genuine concern for our client’s interests.  At SJA Property Management someone is always available for our clients. Our team approach and dedicated people, have been the key to our success and have helped us build a reputation as an industry leader in the area.  We look forward to serving you and hope that you will contact us for a free consultation.
