Settling Down in Blacksburg, Virginia

Out of all the cities in the world, Erik Leuschner and his team at Real Property Management decided to settle their families and business down in the heart of the New River Valley. Blacksburg, Virginia is known for its rolling hills, mountainous peaks, and of course, the Virginia Tech Hokies, but Erik knew there was more that met the eye in this small town. He saw a great opportunity where a property management company could provide exceptional value for property owners who really care about the upkeep and little details in their rental real estate. After time in the military and working in the industry, Erik wanted a place to call his own. The question is, why Blacksburg, Virginia?

The College

On June 20th, 1982, the college as we know it was founded under the name Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Now spreading over 2,600 acres, with over 213 buildings, Virginia Tech is an immense part of the Blacksburg Community.

Living in a college town may be challenging for some, but in Blacksburg, being a Hokie means everything. Waking up those early Saturday mornings to celebrate with family and friends are some of the best memories ever made. One of the best things about Blacksburg is family time, and being a Hokie means just that!
