As Owner and President of Chesapeake Property Management, Wayne strives to treat each rental property as if it were his own. A former homebuilder, Wayne and Linda saw an opportunity in Owings Mills New Town to start a real estate brokerage. Almost a year after opening Yaffe Real Estate, a client who was moving to California sparked a new business venture for Wayne. After the client decided that he did not want to lose money selling his house due to the area’s new construction competition, the decision was made to rent out the property and have Wayne serve as the property manager. Chesapeake Property Management was born and continues to grow, currently managing over 140 rental properties. Whether you are a landlord or tenant, Wayne and his Property Management team are here to assist you every step of the way.
When he is not managing properties, Wayne enjoys spending time with his family, especially coaching his kids’ basketball and lacrosse teams. He also enjoys golf and music, particularly The Grateful Dead.
