ABOUT US

H and K Properties, Inc. is owned and operated by Heather Hamilton and Kathy Shaw and is located in downtown Lexington, Virginia in the Historic Dutch Inn.   We handle residential, commercial and resort properties and working together as a team we are focused on the needs of our Owners and Tenants.  In addition to property management, we can also list your property for sale or assist you in purchasing a home.

FULL SERVICE MANAGEMENT

Our full service management program is custom tailored to each property we manage.  Whether you own a single family residence, commercial property or resort rental, we have a program that will work for you.  Such services include procurement of a thoroughly screened and qualified tenant, inspection of property condition upon each move-in and move-out, periodic evaluations of preventative or needed maintenance, collection of rent and security deposits, advertising, hiring third party vendors for repairs, and implementing eviction if necessary.  Other services may include payment of utilities, invoicing tenants for reimbursement of expenses, and payment of association fees on behalf of the Landlord.  Each month Landlords will receive a report showing income and expenses incurred during the previous month along with copies of invoices with their check.  At year end, we handle the 1099 prep and provide a yearly statement to our Landlords.

TENANT PLACEMENT PROGRAM

This program is designed for Landlords that are involved on a more day-to-day management with their property but wish to be spared the hassle of procuring a tenant.  For a tenant placement fee, we will advertise and show your property, screen tenants through our regular application process, prepare the lease and collect the security deposit.

RESORT MANAGEMENT

This is a lodging service.  Our program is custom built around your property and your objectives.  We will advertise and inspect your property before and after each guest stay, collect all lodging fees, and oversee cleaning and any necessary repairs provided by our maintenance team.  Other services that may be property specific included in this program are payment of utilities, association fee payments, and submission of VA lodging taxes and reports.  Each resort owner will receive a report outlining income and expenses incurred in the previous month along with copies of invoices with their check.  We prepare the 1099's and provide yearly statements showing all income and expenses.

 

HEATHER HAMILTON

As a graduate of Southern Seminary Junior College and Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Heather has a love for this area which she has called home since 2001.  She has a varied career background having worked in education, finance, horse training, coffee roasting and finally real estate. She obtained her real estate license in 2006 and embarked on her career in real estate sales.  In December of 2007 Heather added the responsibilities of property management to her daily routine and after 6 years purchased the rental portfolio with her co-worker Kathy Shaw upon obtaining her Broker's license.  Heather is the company's contact for all information pertaining to rentals, property showings, and all aspects of the business required to be handled by a licensed real estate Broker.

KATHY SHAW

Kathy worked in the real estate industry from the early 1980's through the mid 1990's as a salesperson and rental property manager after relocating to Lexington from Pennsylvania with her young daughter.  Leaving real estate for a while to pursue other career interests, Kathy eventually returned to work in an administrative position with Lexington Company, a rental property management company which she eventually purchased with co-worker Heather Hamilton in July 2013. Choosing not to reactivate her agent's license in order to be able to concentrate on the administrative aspects of H and K Properties, Inc., she is responsible for the accounting, managerial and financial aspects of the business.
