HOW Properties is a homegrown, locally-owned and operated Philadelphia real estate management firm.

About HOW Properties

Why Are We In Business?

HOW Properties is in business to have fun and give back while creating wealth for our employees, partners, Tenants and surrounding communities.

What Do We Do?

We purchase and reposition undervalued properties. These properties are developed into residential and mixed-use buildings in burgeoning neighborhoods with a vibrant commercial corridor including retail, restaurants, and nightlife. We work with the surrounding communities to develop properties that will benefit the neighborhoods.

All of our projects are managed in-house from beginning to end resulting in consistently successful projects. The same experienced and knowledgeable staff handles design/development, construction, and property management for all of our properties. We currently have over 600 units under management or currently under development throughout the Philadelphia area.

HOW Do We Do It?

We judge our success by the happiness of our employees, tenants, clients, and neighbors. We strive to make the neighborhoods where we develop better places to live by increasing property values and population density.

We give back to these neighborhoods by donating our time and money, creating jobs for local residents, and working with local community groups.


Thanks, John. I really appreciate how accessible and helpful you, Gary and the rest of the staff at HOW Properties have been throughout the purchase of my home. ~ Khuram C.

Thank you for your prompt and comprehensive response – something that was difficult, if not impossible, with the previous owners.  It’s nice to have a quality management company in the building now. ~ Seth M.

Your professionalism was the deciding factor in choosing this property. ~ Jesse C.
