Company Description

First Providence Property Management seeks to offer a hands-on management approach to our owners by protecting their investments and enhancing the value of their property. We strive for “Property Management, Leasing and Sales with a personal touch.”

We accomplish this through the following:

  • A professional team of leasing and property management consultants with extensive knowledge of the Hampton Roads area.
  • Marketing, Management and advertising expertise to handle your needs in order to save you time and money.
  • By attracting and retaining the best, most qualified tenants and keeping your turnover rate low.
  • And, offering an in house, knowledgeable maintenance staff that saves you time and money.

We also service low to moderate income areas and work with tenants that don't have a perfect credit history via our credit building program. By doing so, we are able to enlarge the pool of potential tenants while still protecting owner investments by requirin a larger initial deposit.

Our goal isn't to be the largest management company, but rather to provide the best service to each of our clients.
