Our leasing services coordinate the marketing and advertising of your rental property. We will arrange for prospective tenants to see your property. A leasing video is prepared for all properties. Once a prospective tenant is identified, they are screened and weighted against the criteria established by the property owner. Once approved, a lease is executed and the tenant moves into the property. Video recordings are also done at the time of move in and move out. This allows for the accurate processing of security deposits.
The entire operation is coordinated by our management team. This team has a fiduciary responsibility first and foremost to the property owner. In their oversight of tenant service, leasing, maintenance and accounting they are required by the Pa Real Estate Commission to act in the owners best interest. Our management team as a core belief looks out for the owner, period. One of the key services provided is the teaching of owners to understand the reports produced by our professional management software. Finally, the management team is in place to ensure that an owner getting an answer to their question does not get in the way of keeping their tenant happy. This is because we all know a happy tenant leads to a profitable rental situation.

HERSHEY AREA INFORMATION
The town of Hershey—also known as “Chocolatetown, USA” and “The Sweetest Place on Earth”—is located just 15 minutes outside of Harrisburg and is most famously known for being the home of The Hershey Company, the largest maker and distributor of chocolate in the United States. Hershey’s Chocolate World, the visitor’s center for the Hershey Company, is a popular tourist attraction that features a riding tour through the history of Hershey’s Chocolate and its current manufacturing processes, along with several other activities such as building custom candy bars and participating in a 4D show.
Outside of the chocolate industry, The Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company provides much of the area’s entertainment in the form of Hersheypark, the Giant Center, ZooAmerica, and more. The award-winning amusement park, Hersheypark, features 68 different rides ranging from children’s rides to high-speed roller coasters. Shows taking place in the Hershey Amphitheater and the Hershey Music Box can also be found within the bounds of the park, as well as The Boardwalk at Hershey, a sprawling water park consisting of pools and water rides. ZooAmerica, an extension of Hersheypark, contains an abundance of North American wildlife exhibits like the southern swamps and eastern woodlands. The Giant Center, a 17,000 square-foot multipurpose stadium, is home to Hershey’s own professional hockey team, the Hershey Bears. When the center isn’t hosting hockey games, it acts as a concert venue and graduation hall to Penn State Harrisburg and Cumberland Valley High School.
The Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company also manages the four-star Hotel Hershey, a historic resort that overlooks the town and features luxurious amenities like the Hershey Spa, a nine-hole golf course, year-round ice skating, swimming complexes, and more. It overlooks the Hershey Gardens which consist of Victorian-inspired rose gardens, the Butterfly House, an arboretum, and several other botanical exhibits. As part of the region’s wine country, Hershey also produces wines that are handcrafted with homegrown grapes. On Saturdays and Sundays in May, Hershey Harrisburg Wine Country presents Sweet Sensations, an event where local winemakers teach attendees about the savory combination of wine and chocolate in a three-week celebration featuring a wide array of winemakers. In the fall, winemakers return to teach about the harvest of grapes and host a tasting of pre-wine “just-pressed” juice.
Beyond the scope of Hershey-owned entertainment are the Tanger Outlets, Indian Echo Caverns, and Tröeg’s Brewing Company. The Tanger Outlets consist of several apparal, accessory, footware, and children’s stores, many of them popular, high-end brands like Coach, Guess, Nine West, J Crew, and more. At Indian Echo Caverns, attendees can participate in guided tours of its historic, limestone caves. Finally, Hershey is home to one of the main proponents of the area’s burgeoning microbrewery scene, the Tröeg’s Brewing Company. Located just past the Tanger Outlets, the Tröeg’s complex features local and award-winning hand-crafted ales on tap and available for purchase, as well as guided and self-guided tours of the premises, and in-house gourmet meals.
The town is also known for the Milton Hershey school, an educational establishment well known for the altruistic assistance it extends to underprivileged youth. Today, it is estimated that 1,800 boys and girls are part of the school with more than 9,000 alumni nationwide. Furthermore, the Hershey educational system consists of Derry Township School District, which includes Hershey High School. There is also The Vista School, which is a state approved, private school for children aged 3 to 21 years who are diagnosed with autism. Penn State College of Medicine is located on the outskirts, affiliated with the renowned and continuing-to-expand Hershey Medical Center.

"As a landlord, I am so very pleased with the services offered by Lehman Property Management. I travel the country with my job so finding someone I trust to handle my property is important. It is reassuring to know that my home is in good hands. They were very thorough on the intake process and let me know what repairs had to be made before they would allow me to rent the property out. They screen their tenants well so that I feel comfortable with who is living in my home. When my home flooded for the first time a few months ago with the heavy rains, the problem was taken care of immediately and my property was saved from any pertinent damage. This would not have happened if I had to care for it myself. I highly recommend their services to anyone wishing to rent out a property."
