Sam Le Blanc

Founder

Sam Le Blanc was first drawn to real estate while in high school and went on to obtain his first real estate license when attending Georgetown University. After graduation he started buying, renovating, and managing property in his home town, New Orleans. Moving back to Washington, DC in the early 90’s Sam’s entrepreneurial propensity had him develop a variety of successful small businesses in a number of markets including printing, publishing, and restaurants. Applying the business experience he garnered, Sam moved into managing finances and business for other clients. Much of that management included real estate management, leasing, and sales. In 2006 Sam returned to real estate full-time and spent the next five years working at a local management firm managing residential real estate. To capitalize on his real estate experience, in 2011, he formed his own company, Crescent Property Management. Sam resides in Washington, D.C. with his wife and four children.

Hai Nguyen

Accountant

After graduating from VCU Business School, Hai Nguyen decided that he will not have an office job in DC like the rest of the sheeples he graduated with. He enjoyed his time freely between books, nature, and videogames until the day he realized that he should start paying back his school loans and maybe eat better. Happily employed at CPM, Hai uses his acquired business skills to reconcile bank accounts, keep bills paid and prepare financial statements while staving off random computer gremlins at the office. When he’s not busy keeping the company financial systems in order, Hai enjoys walking the office dog Bayou while they plan their great escape back to the wild where Calvin & Hobbes will be read all day long.

Fun Fact: Enjoys playing chess, nice weather and iced tea; ideally all at the same time.
