Linda Bass Yaffe
1. Tell us about your background: I have lived in Maryland my entire life! I studied business/entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland at College Park and then pursued my law degree at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. I always knew I was interested in business and law and wanted to combine these two interests in my future work.
2. What do you do for Chesapeake? I am the co-owner of Chesapeake Property Management and Yaffe Real Estate, along with my husband, Wayne. I handle all legal issues and any problems that may arise. I also personally speak to all of our prospective landlords so that I may understand their unique needs and situations. Finally, I direct all marketing efforts for both teams at Chesapeake Property Management and Yaffe Real Estate so that the public may understand what makes our company the best!
3. What do you think sets Chesapeake apart from other management companies? As a former attorney with 25+ years in the real estate industry, I think we have a unique perspective on how to protect our properties and reduce our Landlords' risk. Not only do we want to provide the most pleasant leasing experience in the area, we also want all parties to understand their responsibilities in the lease so that we avoid misunderstandings. We are always thinking long term versus short term. With 300 properties and all of our years in the business, we have only filed for eviction twice; that is a true testament to our attention to detail, great systems and awesome team.
