Windham Property Management expands into N.H.

BRATTLEBORO—BRATTLEBORO — Windham Property Management, Inc. (WPMI) is expanding its services into Cheshire County in New Hampshire.

Formerly WPMI offered a full range of property management services in Windham County only, since New Hampshire requires special licensing of property managers.

Sally Fegley, co-owner of the company, recently became licensed in New Hampshire. This credentialing allows WPMI to operate in that state.

Services provided by WPMI include residential and commercial leasing, property management, caretaking, EMP (lead paint) inspections, special projects and real estate accounting.

“We customize our services based on our clients’ needs,” says Fegley, “We are happy to do as much or as little as the owners require.”

For information, call 802-365-4669.
