Frequently Asked Questions


Sarah Keller did an excellent job managing an investment property for me in DC. She was professional, responsive, stayed on top of maintenance, and the tenants loved her. I strongly recommend her for anyone who wants a hassle-free investment property ownership experience.

Chatel real estate did an excellent job helping me maintain and eventually sell my condo Alexandria, VA. In particular, Lou Costanza and Peter Chan were instrumental in selling a difficult property and going above and beyond in making my family feel supported. Lou and Peter worked with us tirelessly over many months to sell my condo, which unfortunately was in a declining neighborhood. They were determined and creative, constantly thinking of new ways to make the property more attractive. When we finally received an offer, they worked with us to make us comfortable with our decision. And when we were hesitant to accept, due to our desire to use the profits to support our charity, Justice for Daniel Coverston, they both generously provided a large portion of their commission to that effort. Lou Costanza and Peter Chan are dedicated, caring professionals who truly care about their clients’ wellbeing.

Usually, property managers get a bad rap for being difficult and I’ve absolutely dealt with some difficult managers before. However, during my time living at a home managed by Sarah Keller and Chatel Real Estate, I found her to be incredibly patient, understanding and lovely. I can’t recommend Chatel enough. We lived in an old house and had a couple of emergencies from time to time, emergencies with the house and with roommates. Sarah and Chatel’s response was prompt and we always knew we were in good hands. We had a good relationship with our landlords, and Sarah was appropriate and congenial when it came to checking up on our temporary home. I hope every lease I join will be this pleasant from now on. Thank you Chatel! And thank you, Sarah!

Lou Costanza really helped my daughter find the place of her dreams, he was patient, professional and answered every question she had immediately. I appreciate the advice he gave us as it’s her first apartment.

I rented from this company for the past four years. Courteous & professional staff at Chatel. I primarily interacted with Sarah and Lou. They both are very responsive to their tenants needs. The best management company I’ve ever leased from.

I have lived in a Chatel managed building for 3 years now. They are prompt to respond to my maintenance requests, and always polite as professional. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a well managed rental in DC!
