Leasing units is not about locating renters. It's about finding the a solid renter.
Our local real estate company check outs the prospective tenant’s past behavior. With that in mind, our real estate brokerage assumes the applicant’s future behavior will be the same or similar. The applicant should demonstrate a history of being a good, solid lessee and meeting our financial criteria. Our background checking process is founded on several basics including:
- Tenant Screening – Nesbitt screens tenants with a combination of checking credit history, background, eviction and criminal screening services as well as our own efforts to collect information needed to confirm and process the application.
- Credit History – The potential tenant's credit history informs us about the prospective tenant’s current and past performance with regards to debts and other financial obligations. The prospective renter’s credit report also tells us their monthly debt and shows their previous addresses (which we compare to addresses listed on the application). An applicant must have acceptable credit to qualify.
- Criminal Record & Evictions – Nesbitt Realty knows it's essential to know the criminal and public court records of the applicant on every rental in Alexandria. Real Estate Owners should be aware that many other managing agents do not investigate court records.
If accepted, the applicant’s in-processing includes a lease, lease signing, collecting pro-rated rent, and providing the renter with a copy of any association documents needed for disclosure and instruction on rules and regulations associated with the investment abode and community.

Our family business also seeks lessees through diplomatic networks and other methods. To learn more about the full-list of what we do, contact an agent today.
