Our company was founded in 1980 as Armstrong Management Services, a family business serving one managed community. Over the years, our portfolio has grown to include more than 295 communities with 90,000 homes, and we are recognized as the leading full-service residential property management organization in the Washington, D.C. area.
Today, we offer a wide range of community management services, including physical, administrative, accounting and financial services, developer consulting and real estate leasing and brokerage services.
In 1998, Armstrong became part of FirstService Residential, the largest property resident management organization in North America. This was an important milestone in the history of our company, enabling us to participate in many differentiating programs and industry-leading services that continue to deliver significant added value to our clients.
In June 2013, we experienced another major milestone as our parent company unified all of its management companies under the FirstService Residential brand. At that time, Armstrong Management Services was renamed FirstService Residential Washington, D.C., the name we proudly hold today. In addition to enhancing the visibility of our affiliation with the FirstService Residential family, the rebranding further benefits our clients by enabling us to leverage our organization’s shared resources, best practices and collective buying power, while continuing to maintain our own local expertise, caring relationships and dedicated customer service – the qualities that helped us become the leading residential property management leader in Washington, D.C.
