DF Management Philadelphia, LLC is a full-service property management company located in Center City, Philadelphia. Drawing on almost 20 years' experience managing residential properties, along with a deep knowledge of the Philadelphia market, we pride ourselves on delivering quality and dependable management, both for you and your tenants. Whether you own a single-family home, a multi-unit building or a luxury high-rise, we treat your property as we would treat our own. With our background in construction, we are
hands-on, ensuring each issue is addressed thoroughly and cost-effectively.
We customize our services to fit each individual client's needs. Our range of services include:
After conducting market research to ensure accurate pricing, we will strategically market your property and thoroughly screen potential tenants to make sure that we execute leases for only the most qualified renters.
Maintenance & Repairs:
Our team of highly skilled maintenance technicians and quality contractors are available around the clock to handle any issue your property may face. Because we keep our contractors working, they respond quickly and charge very competitive rates. Should you have a contractor you like, we are happy to work with them as well.
Rent Collection & Owner Distributions:
Our online management platform makes rent collection and owner distributions seamless. Tenants log on each month to pay rent, and once rents are paid and expenses deducted, net rents are direct deposited to owners.
Bill Pay & Utility Reimbursements:
We will handle any bills associated with your property, from utility bills to mortgage payments, adding expenses to tenant ledgers when necessary.
We work closely with each owner to make sure expectations are met. Along with rent deposits, we provide detailed monthly owner reports outlining income and expenses. Through our owner portal, you can access additional reports, such as delinquency and lease endings. In addition to handling monthly operations, we are always looking forward: how can you increase profitability? What upgrades may increase your property’s value?
Through our online portal, we will be in constant communication with your tenants, fielding maintenance requests and alerting them to important property-related issues. When necessary, we write delinquency letters and handle all aspects of the eviction process. Our primary concern, however, is making sure tenants are happy and paying their rent on time!

While new to the field, I have always had an interest in real estate since a child from watching all of the home shows on TV. I never thought it could be a career for me until I was given a chance by DF Management to be a property manager. DF Management has given me the opportunity to propel into the vast world of real estate and learn many important functions of the field. From giving guided tours to prospective tenants and flipping properties for move-ins, to understanding how each and every property operates. I am learning something new everyday which is exciting for me. Investing in real estate has become a main goal of mine and everything I have learned is getting me closer to that!
