When choosing a property management company in Delaware…

Why Delaware Realty Management?

Thank you so much for working with [us] on getting our home in Newark ready to rent. We appreciate all you did with the applications, credit scores and lease. You helped find the perfect tenants. We will use your services again when their lease is up.

Charles and Patti

Wonderful experience thus far. Everyone has been easy to work with and I love my home.

C. Wolfe

I have had the pleasure of being a tenant of a property managed by this business for just shy of 4 years and I could NOT recommend them highly enough. Not only are they a pleasure to work with, they are always quick to respond to any questions you might have, and should your property require maintenance or service of any sort (I only had the question that turned out to be nothing in all this time); they also get right back to you in a quick and professional manner. This is a first class property management agency. If you are looking for a new rental, definitely continue to look for openings with them if you are able, and if you are trying to decide between 2 properties, hands down select the one managed by Delaware Realty Management. They also make paying your rent so easy with a portal set up for you with many payment options. I never write reviews, but I just had to because this business is just so wonderful.

F. Villafuerte

A great company to work with. [DRM] made this looking and obtaining a new rental place easy and painless. Timely responses friend and patient. I just wish my last property management company was 1/5th as good as Delaware Realty Management, LLC is. Looking forward to many years of great service with them.

R. Mosher

There were a few things that needed to be addressed in our condo when we moved in and an issue with our fridge (which was replaced promptly the next day it burnt out with a beautiful stainless steel fridge). We couldn’t be happier with the service she has provided us and our experience 14 months later.

Jessica S.

This is a very professional management company, their interactions with our offices and clients have been phenomenal and I hope we can continue to work with this team of professionals.

K. Johnson

I’m so pleased with [the DRM] team. It was a great experience from application to move in. The team was so resourceful being that I’m relocating from another state. Thanks ladies!

E. Oluwatayo

As landlord owning a few rental units, I rendered the service three times, and continue to render their service. They do application process, draft the lease, and know the current update. Therefore, I only focus on showing the house and meeting the applicants. Thanks again for your service. I could not manage it without your service.
