KETTLER and Chesapeake Realty Partners Strike Deal on 2 Communities

"MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 19, 2019 -- KETTLER, a leading Washington D.C. Real Estate Services Company, recently signed property management agreements with Chesapeake Realty Partners (CRP) to manage two of their owned multifamily apartment communities in Maryland and Virginia.

Waterside at Reston is an existing 276-unit garden style community located in Reston, VA just minutes from Reston Town Center and Phase 2 of WMATA’s Metrorail Silver Line. Chesapeake Realty Partners plans to build a new clubhouse next spring and is already undertaking numerous exciting renovations on the property.

“We strongly value our relationship and successes with Chesapeake Realty Partners and look forward to continuing to grow our partnership with the addition of these two opportunities,” said Kimberly Ramsey, Vice President of Operations at KETTLER.

“The level of expertise from senior leadership on down to onsite personnel has been a key driver in growing the relationship between KETTLER and CRP,” said Derek Olszanowski, Vice President, Chesapeake Realty Partners. “This business is about relationships both at the front door with the customer, and behind the scenes between Ownership and Management, and KETTLER has really demonstrated true success in both.”

Avenue Grand broke ground in 2019. The first building is expected to be delivered in mid-2020, with pre-leasing expected to begin in January 2020. KETTLER’s first partnership with Chesapeake Realty Partners began with Belvoir Square in Fort Belvoir, VA, which Chesapeake Realty Partners developed and owns, and KETTLER currently manages.
