Property Management

Peace of Mind Property Checks • Maintenance • Hot Tub Services • Firewood • Snow Removal

Best of Canaan, LLC is committed to helping homeowners simplify the often overwhelming responsibility of maintaining and managing a second home. With over 60 years of combined experience in property management, real estate sales, building construction and maintenance, our goal is to provide quality affordable services in a timely and friendly manner. With an emphasis on prompt and courteous communication, innovative and creative thinking, exceptional customer service and a strong work ethic, Best of Canaan is committed to making your second home our first priority.

PEACE OF MIND PROPERTY CHECKS

Property owners worry about your property. We understand. Best of Canaan can guarantee your property will be looked after while you’re away, ensuring no “surprises” when you return.

Our professional staff will visit your home to perform a physical inspection of both the interior and exterior. Weekly, biweekly or monthly visits are available — you pick the frequency. If you’d like, we’ll stop by after a nasty wind or snow storm to see that your property is still intact.

Peace of Mind Checks include checking water pipes, water filtration systems, heating systems, cable or satellite reception, phone service, doors and windows, refrigerators and more. Eliminate the worry and forget the frustration of arriving in the mountains to find frozen pipes or a failed furnace.

We also offer emergency key service … not that you would, but ... just in case you forget your key.

Maintenance

From routine grass mowing and weed eating to landscaping and custom-built outdoor fireplaces and Bar-B-Ques, Best of Canaan can help.

Considering adding some trees, shrubs or flowers? Have trees that need to be taken down or are already down? Best of Canaan can help with all of your lawn care and landscaping needs.

Seasonal maintenance service can also include opening and closing of foundation vents and cleaning of gutters. Design a seasonal list just for your home by adding services including leaf raking, chimney sweeping, insulating pipes, replacing smoke detector batteries and more.

General Handyman Services are available as well.

Give us a call and we will be happy to meet with you to discuss your individual needs.

Hot Tub Services

Kelly Roberts and his professional staff have over 10 years’ experience in hot tub service and maintenance.

Hot Tub Services include routine checks of chemical and water levels, draining and cleaning of the hot tub and filter and mechanical repairs. Schedule hot tub service as often as you please, but we highly recommend, at a minimum, biweekly checks in the summer and weekly checks throughout the winter.

Need to replace your hot tub lid or upgrade your entire spa? We are also a distributor for hot tub sales through Marque and PDC Spas.

HOUSEKEEPING

Small clean, big clean, fall clean, spring clean … our housekeeping personnel have it all under control.

Weekly, biweekly, monthly or annual services are available. Yes, we do windows — interior and exterior, high and low.

Let us clean up after you leave or prepare your home before you arrive by turning up the heat and leaving a light on. Trash pickup from your home is also available, with or without cleaning services.

Our professional and trustworthy housekeeping staff is available 7 days a week.

FIREWOOD

Year-round delivery and stacking of firewood is available. Both seasoned and unseasoned wood is available. Please phone us for current pricing.

Snow Removal

Whether you plan to be here or not, snow removal is an important part of owning a property in the mountains.

Our experienced staff can provide you with a quote for snow removal based on the location of your home and the length of your driveway. Allow us to ensure that you, your family and friends always have easy access to your home.

Deck, porch, walk and even roof clearing are also available.

    Amy has made Canaan Valley her home for the past 30 years, working in real estate sales and property management. Meet Amy here.

    877-484-8680
    amy@bestofcanaan.com

    What a delight working with Amy on the purchase of my cabin in Timberline. Working out all the detail could be stressful from 4 hours away, but she really made the whole transaction so easy. Amy is so knowledgeable about the area I know that she will be a great resource and friend for years to come.

    Amy helped us buy our first property in the Valley – that we still have over 25 years later – and for which Amy presently handles the rentals. Most recently, Amy helped us sell a property near Davis, West Virginia. We highly recommend Amy as a realtor. She is very professional, highly experienced, and has the utmost integrity.

    I cannot recommend Amy highly enough for real estate transactions in the Canaan Valley area! Her vast area knowledge and connections facilitate a very smooth and stress-free real estate transaction. She always has a quick solution to any issues that may arise with a quick phone call to one of her many contacts in the area. She even arranged for a pre move-in cleaning and firewood delivery! Amy didn’t leave any stone unturned until we were completely satisfied with our home purchase. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else for a real estate transaction in the area.

    Amy has the ability to listen and hear things that the prospective buyer might not even be saying out loud. She asks questions, listens to answers and finds the houses to look at without wasting the buyer’s time/money. She has become a friend and a trusted resource for property management

    What a delight working with Amy on the purchase of my cabin in Timberline. Working out the details could be a little stressful from 4 hours away, but she really made the whole transaction so easy. She is so knowledgeable about the community I know that she will remain a resource and friend for years to come.

    Amy was patient, knowledgeable, helpful, and generous, all along the way. It took us nearly nine months to find the right house, but she was game to show us properties again and again. She is highly-regarded in the area, and we couldn’t be more grateful for her expertise.

    Amy is the best real estate agent with whom I have ever dealt. Totally knowledgeable about all aspects of selling a home, she provided unparalleled guidance and advice. The negotiation, sale and closing went perfectly. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Canaan Valley.

    Amy makes the process of buying and selling homes so easy. We have purchased two homes with her and now have completed a sale as well. Great experience. Highly recommended!!!

    Extremely knowledgeable of the area. She was able to provide a wealth of information that helped us narrow our decision. Listened to what we were looking for and tailored the listings to meet our desires. Very patient; worked with us over an extended period of time to help us find the right home. No pressure to make a decision. Highly recommended if you are in need of a realtor in the area.

    Amy knows her stuff! She made buying our vacation home painless. Good communicator, professional and knowledgeable. We had a great experience and can’t wait to get back out to our vacation home.

    We have done business with Amy twice. She worked with us on our acquisition of a Canaan home and then recently helped us sell it after several years. In our opinion, her local expertise is unsurpassed because of her broad and deep history marketing properties for sale and rental as well as property management. We recommend her very highly to anyone considering a real estate purchase or sale in Canaan Valley area.

    Working with Amy was absolutely wonderful! She was responsive, helpful, and gave honest opinions. She did not pressure us in any way, but strove to understand our needs and desires. Her negotiation skills were appreciated.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 Barb is a 20. Fantastic to work with. She is prompt. Ten minutes early every time. Walked the entire two acre perimeter with me. Pointed out the features and benefits. Gave advice on best way to build a new home. She even aided on securing a temporary place while house is being built.

    Amy Barb is excellent. We currently live in The Woodlands,TX, but will be retiring in our home state of West Virginia. Amy showed us many great properties during the Thanksgiving holidays and when we found the one we loved, she worked tirelessly to get the home under contract. Amy still continues to be a valued agent. She has set up home checks, contracted someone to keep our driveway plowed, and had a load of firewood delivered for closing weekend. Thanks Amy!

    Amy is the best. I can’t imagine anyone in the area knows or sells more. Thanks Amy for all your help. To buy in the Canaan Valley and not work with Amy would be crazy. Thoughtful service throughout the process. Amy was forthcoming with honest answers. She truly understands customer service. I will highly recommend Amy in the future without hesitation.

    Amy Barb is a real pro in Canaan Valley. She has vast local experience, and knows how to negotiate. She’s also really great to work with – helpful, kind, responsive and not pushy at all. Amy is the best!

    We were unfamiliar with the area while looking for a second home and Amy provided very straightforward and honest guidance. After we had the property under contract she helped with everything from utilities to insurance etc. We highly recommend her!

    Amy did an impressive job of presenting our home to potential buyers. Her web page is especially impressive. She managed the details of selling and closing, making our involvement seamless and simple. Highly recommended.

    I didn’t know much about the area I was looking in, apart from visiting friends for a long weekend every winter. Amy was accommodating with my schedule… having to come from and return to Fairfax, VA limited the amount of time I was available to see places during the day. She was extremely knowledgeable about each place we saw, not just regarding the maintenance history of each property but also the rental history as well. I’m very grateful for her help and the experience she brought with her, as well as her constant good humor.

    Amy is an amazing Realtor. She is professional, knowledgeable, patient, helpful, and very responsive. Amy led us through what could have been a very stressful process and minimized our worries/concerns in so very many ways. Even now that the sale is complete, Amy continues to offer help beyond the scope of her Realtor duties. We cannot recommend her more highly. Trust Amy with your house buying and/or selling. You will not be disappointed!

    Amy is the best agent I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve bought 5 homes over the years. She didn’t push her own listings, and really gave me great advice on pricing strategy. She definitely was in my corner vis a’ vis other agents in the area – and you so often get the sense that real estate agents merely watch each other’s back. If you want someone who is unquestionably going to put your interests first, go with Amy. If you want to pay the very least you can for your home, go with Amy.

    Once my husband and I met Amy, we knew we would find a home. Amy sent us frequent listing updates, property details and spent endless hours driving us around the Valley. She has amazing listening skills, endless patience and a very kind disposition. Her knowledge of the housing market, construction and service contract personnel have helped us immensely. Even after closing, I know I can call Amy with a question and get a helpful answer. We certainly think Amy is the best choice in Canaan Valley for a realtor.

    Amy is without a doubt the most knowledgeable and professional realtor I have ever met and she was a pleasure to work with. She was on top of every aspect of this process from start to finish and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Could not give a higher recommendation for this excellent professional…and she is an extremely nice person!

      Amy Barb, Broker

      Amy Barb, Broker
      Amy has made Canaan Valley her home for the past 30 years, working in real estate sales and property management. Meet Amy here.

      877-484-8680
      amy@bestofcanaan.com

      Once my husband and I met Amy, we knew we would find a home. Amy sent us frequent listing updates, property details and spent endless hours driving us around the Valley. She has amazing listening skills, endless patience and a very kind disposition. Her knowledge of the housing market, construction and service contract personnel have helped us immensely. Even after closing, I know I can call Amy with a question and get a helpful answer. We certainly think Amy is the best choice in Canaan Valley for a realtor.

      What a delight working with Amy on the purchase of my cabin in Timberline. Working out the details could be a little stressful from 4 hours away, but she really made the whole transaction so easy. She is so knowledgeable about the community I know that she will remain a resource and friend for years to come.

      On a scale of 1 to 10 Barb is a 20. Fantastic to work with. She is prompt. Ten minutes early every time. Walked the entire two acre perimeter with me. Pointed out the features and benefits. Gave advice on best way to build a new home. She even aided on securing a temporary place while house is being built.

      I cannot recommend Amy highly enough for real estate transactions in the Canaan Valley area! Her vast area knowledge and connections facilitate a very smooth and stress-free real estate transaction. She always has a quick solution to any issues that may arise with a quick phone call to one of her many contacts in the area. She even arranged for a pre move-in cleaning and firewood delivery! Amy didn’t leave any stone unturned until we were completely satisfied with our home purchase. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else for a real estate transaction in the area.

      Extremely knowledgeable of the area. She was able to provide a wealth of information that helped us narrow our decision. Listened to what we were looking for and tailored the listings to meet our desires. Very patient; worked with us over an extended period of time to help us find the right home. No pressure to make a decision. Highly recommended if you are in need of a realtor in the area.

      Amy is the best. I can’t imagine anyone in the area knows or sells more. Thanks Amy for all your help. To buy in the Canaan Valley and not work with Amy would be crazy. Thoughtful service throughout the process. Amy was forthcoming with honest answers. She truly understands customer service. I will highly recommend Amy in the future without hesitation.

      Amy is without a doubt the most knowledgeable and professional realtor I have ever met and she was a pleasure to work with. She was on top of every aspect of this process from start to finish and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Could not give a higher recommendation for this excellent professional…and she is an extremely nice person!

      Amy is the best agent I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve bought 5 homes over the years. She didn’t push her own listings, and really gave me great advice on pricing strategy. She definitely was in my corner vis a’ vis other agents in the area – and you so often get the sense that real estate agents merely watch each other’s back. If you want someone who is unquestionably going to put your interests first, go with Amy. If you want to pay the very least you can for your home, go with Amy.

      Amy helped us buy our first property in the Valley – that we still have over 25 years later – and for which Amy presently handles the rentals. Most recently, Amy helped us sell a property near Davis, West Virginia. We highly recommend Amy as a realtor. She is very professional, highly experienced, and has the utmost integrity.

      What a delight working with Amy on the purchase of my cabin in Timberline. Working out all the detail could be stressful from 4 hours away, but she really made the whole transaction so easy. Amy is so knowledgeable about the area I know that she will be a great resource and friend for years to come.

      Amy was patient, knowledgeable, helpful, and generous, all along the way. It took us nearly nine months to find the right house, but she was game to show us properties again and again. She is highly-regarded in the area, and we couldn’t be more grateful for her expertise.

      We were unfamiliar with the area while looking for a second home and Amy provided very straightforward and honest guidance. After we had the property under contract she helped with everything from utilities to insurance etc. We highly recommend her!

      Amy Barb is excellent. We currently live in The Woodlands,TX, but will be retiring in our home state of West Virginia. Amy showed us many great properties during the Thanksgiving holidays and when we found the one we loved, she worked tirelessly to get the home under contract. Amy still continues to be a valued agent. She has set up home checks, contracted someone to keep our driveway plowed, and had a load of firewood delivered for closing weekend. Thanks Amy!

      Amy Barb is a real pro in Canaan Valley. She has vast local experience, and knows how to negotiate. She’s also really great to work with – helpful, kind, responsive and not pushy at all. Amy is the best!

      Working with Amy was absolutely wonderful! She was responsive, helpful, and gave honest opinions. She did not pressure us in any way, but strove to understand our needs and desires. Her negotiation skills were appreciated.

      Amy has the ability to listen and hear things that the prospective buyer might not even be saying out loud. She asks questions, listens to answers and finds the houses to look at without wasting the buyer’s time/money. She has become a friend and a trusted resource for property management

      We have done business with Amy twice. She worked with us on our acquisition of a Canaan home and then recently helped us sell it after several years. In our opinion, her local expertise is unsurpassed because of her broad and deep history marketing properties for sale and rental as well as property management. We recommend her very highly to anyone considering a real estate purchase or sale in Canaan Valley area.

      Amy is an amazing Realtor. She is professional, knowledgeable, patient, helpful, and very responsive. Amy led us through what could have been a very stressful process and minimized our worries/concerns in so very many ways. Even now that the sale is complete, Amy continues to offer help beyond the scope of her Realtor duties. We cannot recommend her more highly. Trust Amy with your house buying and/or selling. You will not be disappointed!

      Amy did an impressive job of presenting our home to potential buyers. Her web page is especially impressive. She managed the details of selling and closing, making our involvement seamless and simple. Highly recommended.

      Amy knows her stuff! She made buying our vacation home painless. Good communicator, professional and knowledgeable. We had a great experience and can’t wait to get back out to our vacation home.

      Amy is the best real estate agent with whom I have ever dealt. Totally knowledgeable about all aspects of selling a home, she provided unparalleled guidance and advice. The negotiation, sale and closing went perfectly. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Canaan Valley.

      I didn’t know much about the area I was looking in, apart from visiting friends for a long weekend every winter. Amy was accommodating with my schedule… having to come from and return to Fairfax, VA limited the amount of time I was available to see places during the day. She was extremely knowledgeable about each place we saw, not just regarding the maintenance history of each property but also the rental history as well. I’m very grateful for her help and the experience she brought with her, as well as her constant good humor.

      Amy makes the process of buying and selling homes so easy. We have purchased two homes with her and now have completed a sale as well. Great experience. Highly recommended!!!

      Thank you Best of Canaan for a great 2017. Rentals are up and the property is well looked after during our extended absences from the Valley. Thank the maintenance crew for quick response to our recent issues.

They let us know what is going on with our property but don’t annoy us with small repairs like light bulb replacement and insignificant items that may need attention. They will contact us if there is something that needs to have homeowner approval, especially if there is a significant cost to it. Communication with Best of Canaan has always been one of their greatest assets.

    • Best of Canaan - Canaan Valley Property Management
      We have owned our Canaan Valley mountain rental home for almost 32 years. About a year and a half ago, we decided to switch to Best of Canaan to manage our house, based on feedback we had heard about their excellent attention to detail and customer service skills. We are so glad we are with Best of Canaan! Not only have our rentals greatly increased (in all seasons), but we always have immediate responses from them to any service issue we encounter, and our renters have glowing words in our house's guest book about how quickly Best of Canaan has responded to any issue with the house. In our opinion, Best of Canaan is the best rental management company in Canaan Valley!
    • Best of Canaan - Canaan Valley Property Management
      Best of Canaan's property management services aren't just the best in the valley, or even West Virginia – they're the Best of the USA.
    • Best of Canaan - Canaan Valley Property Management
      It has been our pleasure to do business with the staff of Best of Canaan for over 6 years.  They treat our home as if it is their own and the guests that visit our home as if they are their guests.  Last year we had the unfortunate experience of having a hot water heater leak in our home.  A renter checking in discovered the leak and promptly called Donna.  The folks at Best of Canaan handled this emergency like pros.  The guest was quickly re-accommodated to another lovely Best of Canaan property.  Donna and Kelly immediately went to our house with mops, towels and fans.  They shut off the hot water heater and began the laborious process of drying out the floors and walls.  They worked all evening and left the fans running. We were notified and arrived the next day.  Their quick action certainly mitigated our damage and loss.  Anyone who is contemplating renting their home in Canaan Valley should certainly consider Best of Canaan.  They truly are the The Best in The Valley.

    • History By 1892, coal was king in Thomas and Davis Coal and Coke soon had 9 producing mines and a thousand coke ovens within a mile of the town. Named after Senator Henry Gassaway Davis’s brother, Thomas was home to nearly 3000 people, many of them immigrants who flocked there to work in the mines and railroads. In 1901, nearly half of Thomas was destroyed by fire but was quickly rebuilt with fine hotels and an opera house. By 1921 coke production had stopped and mining would diminish in the 50’s. Today Thomas claims a population of 427 residents, but the spirit of the community lives on. Visitors will find reminders of the town’s heyday in the diversity of family names and the impressive architecture created by Italian stonemasons. Historic groups are working to restore the famed opera house while other noble historic buildings have already undergone renovation.   Highlights Allegheny Highland Trail...follow the path of Henry & Thomas Davis on this Rails to Trails venue Douglas Falls...beautiful waterfall…serious hike Mountain State Brewing Co....yummy handcrafted ales and live entertainment Tip Top...beautiful coffee shop with so many delicious things to drink and eat Purple Fiddle...so much live music, be sure to bring your dancing shoes Visit Front Street home of:   Mountain Made Artisans Gallery amazing artisans work in a renovated historic building~ Flying Pigs Restaurant serves breakfast all day~ Thomas Yard offers wine, gifts and cool commodities~ The Picket Patch great gift shop~ The Christmas Shop offers gifts and seasonal décor for more than just Christmas
