Get to Know the Lakehouse Team
We are ready to show you what makes us different
Lakehouse Property Management was initially formed with one primary objective - to become the premier property management company for smaller scale rentals in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The founders, Job van Leusden and Zack Moore, have worked together in varying capacities for the past 15 years. Together, they bring over 3 decades of property management and investment experience to the table.
After years of hearing horror-stories about other property management companies from property owners and landlords in Reading and surrounding areas; Job and Zack agreed it was time to launch a new joint venture focused on the following 3 principles:
Be incredibly easy to do business with (Convenience)
Only produce quality results (Quality)
Always do the right thing (Integrity)
The name “Lakehouse” came about in the early phases of developing the company when Job and Zack were discussing how clients should feel when they hire the right property management company. They both agreed, “It should feel like a vacation.” Hence, Lakehouse Property Management was created with the “lake dock” logo prefacing the “free and easy” feeling that Job and Zack expect their clients to have after transitioning their management to Lakehouse Property Management.
