Since Runnymede concentrates on building and managing local properties, we know a great deal about Hampton Roads and it’s real estate landscape. Not only do we manage a variety of properties across the region, but we are also the owners of the majority of these properties. This benefits our tenants in 3 key ways:
- Immediate response to tenant needs: Instead of the difficulties that can arise from dealing with an out-of-town corporation, you are guaranteed expedient service. We can easily respond to local tenant needs because we are local.
- Superior service: No matter how big or small the need might be, our tenants come first. The Runnymede Corporation is committed to providing the highest level of service to every tenant. The accessibility of our staff and the attention we give our clients is unparalleled.
- Quality facilities: Because we build our own properties, we are invested in building quality construction in key locations.
We are proud of our excellent record of good tenant relationships, sound management, and attention to detail. With almost 50 years of experience in the management of numerous properties, you can trust your business to Runnymede.
