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.

MIDDLETOWN AREA INFORMATION
Middletown, a small yet important part of Dauphin County, lies along the banks of the Swatara Creek and Susquehanna River, just nine miles outside of Harrisburg. The town is perhaps most popularly known for being the home of Penn State Harrisburg, commonly referred to as the “Capital College.” The university offers a wide range of bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as a few doctoral degrees, and has continued to expand in both academic programs and student housing. The Middletown School District serves about 2,800 students in southern Dauphin County and allows for a dual enrolment program, which permits high school students to take courses at local higher education institutions in order to earn college credits that can eventually be transferred to their chosen major.
Middletown is also well known for its location on the Swatara Creek. The 72 mile-long creek is a popular fishing destination for trout, bass, catfish, and more. Beyond fishing, the creek and its surrounding banks are good for hiking, camping, and exploring diverse wildlife. Within the bounds of Middletown there are seventeen parks, and their facilities—sports fields, hockey rink, playground and picnic areas, trails and more—are available to visitors year-round. Some of these parks include: the Detective Christopher Jones Memorial Park, Cobalt Ridge, Delaware, Harris, Herbert Hoover, Lion’s Park, and Forsythia Crossing. Also located in Middletown are the Sunset Golf Course, Middletown Municipal Pool, the public Middletown Country Club, and Frey Village, a Lutheran senior living facility.
In terms of food and entertainment in town, the Brownstone Café is a popular destination that serves a highly acclaimed breakfast menu as well as lunch and dinner. Alfred’s Victorian Restaurant is similarly situated in an old Victorian mansion, and is known for its more intimate and romantic, antique-style settings. Alternatively, Portabella Sports Bar off the Harrisburg Pike offers a large outdoor patio for dining, live music, traditional foods, and a wide variety of beverages. The historic Elk’s Theater is a cinema that screens modern flicks as well as cult classics and various special features.
The newly renovated Harrisburg International Airport (HIA) is a short three-mile drive outside of town. The HIA ranks the third busiest airport in Pennsylvania for passengers and cargo shipment. Finally, the Middletown & Hummelstown Railroad at Brown Street Station provides scenic ten-mile-long train rides through the hills and farmlands of south central Pennsylvania. They also offer themed rides and events like murder mystery dinner trains, pumpkin patch rides, and “sundae” caboose rides.

"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."
