We provide renters with an efficient, cost free way to find an apartment, while also providing owners a variety of highly effective services to market their properties to prospective renters. Since our inception, we have worked with 1000’s of renters and landlords, leasing over 10,000 apartments to date. We have been able to achieve these results because we are different. 

What makes us different? Our company breaks the traditional "real estate" model with a "3Team" system. The approach works to efficiently produce the best results for both our renters and landlords. 

This unique model involves three "teams" 1) Our Leasing Consultants work exclusively with renters to personally help each client with their apartment search. 2) Our Listing Specialists are experts in single and multifamily real estate, guiding our clients through the entire process 3) Our Tour Specialists "bridge-the-gap" between our other teams, touring apartments, handling applications & leases and coordinating renter and landlord interests. 

With this model and our years of experience in the Philadelphia Apartment Market, we have become the best single source for leasing or finding an apartment in Philadelphia. 

If you would like to start your apartment search, or are a landlord with a property for rent, please call us at 215-495-0070 or visit

Needed to make a quick move to Philadelphia PA for job relocation After perusing the Philly Apartment Company website, which has a good variety of properties/units listed, I submitted my contact information on their website to a number of the properties they had listed on their website. I waited a few days, & only heard back with regards to two of the many properties I had inquired about. I decided to contact one of the two Philly Apartment Company realtors who had gotten back to me, & requested that they setup showings for the numerous other properties which I had inquired about via their website. I was very surprised that I had not received responses on a number of properties after waiting to hear back for a number of days. The Philly Apartment Company realtor I worked with was helpful at this point, & secured a number of showings for me on short notice. However, I was also told that some of the units that were listed for immediate availability on their website were actually unavailable - possibly because the units may have been rented between the time I had initially seen them listed online & when my showing appointments were being made? I was sent numerous emails by the Philly Apartment Company realtor as showings were scheduled, which contained links to a webpage listing out all of the addresses of the properties, the showing times, & included links to each property listing on their website. This was a very helpful tool for me to keep all of my showing appointments organized. The only issue I had was that the showing appointments that were made were not necessarily based on location - I was hoping that the Philly Apartment Company realtor would have strategically scheduled back to back showings at properties nearby each other, which was not always the case. Particularly for somebody unfamiliar with the city, I was hoping the Philly Apartment Company realtor would have taken this into consideration when scheduling my showings. When I came down to Philly for my showings, most of the showing agents at the properties were very accommodating. However, I did witness many flaws with Philly Apartment Company. I told the Philly Apartment Company realtor who scheduled all of my showings that I was looking for a unit available for an immediate move in - I specifically selected properties off of their website that had units which met my criteria & which were listed for immediate availability. When I showed up at a few of the properties for my showings, I was told by the showing agents that the Philly Apartment Company realtor told them that I was looking to move into a unit in 2 months - Not an immediate move in, as I had made very clear to the Philly Apartment Company realtor. The showing agents were very accommodating & showed me other units which met my criteria & had immediate availability, but I was surprised that showing agents at various different properties told me that they had received the incorrect information from the Philly Apartment Company realtor. I also noted that many of the rent prices listed on the Philly Apartment Company website were different from the rent prices which were discussed during the showings - Sometimes, the rent prices were off by hundreds of dollars (both above & below the listed rent prices on the Philly Apartment Company website). Because of this, I did not know how much rent was until the showings - it's nice to have an idea of how much something costs before seeing something, & before potentially wasting somebodies time. There was also one showing that I arrived at per the showing schedule I was sent. I had showings setup for units in three different buildings owned by the same company. When I showed up & contacted the building manager, per the instructions of the Philly Apartment Company realtor, I was told that I was not listed on his showing schedule for the day. Overall, the work of Philly Apartment Company seems to be sloppy. You're better off contacting the properties directly & cutting out the middle man.

Wow, I was really surprised to see the negative reviews on here, so I had to chime in. I've worked with PAC twice now and have had great service both times. They helped me find an apartment within a week when I moved to Philly, and I loved the place. Then again when my husband and I moved in together three years ago. I loved working with these people, seriously. Worth giving them a shot.

The agent I dealt with was very rude. I had requested to look at three apartments with him starting in the morning and ending before noon, because I was planning on looking at other apartments later in the day that were not listed on The Philly Apartment Company's website. When he learned of my intentions to do this he sent me a disrespectful email (excerpt below): "...Otherwise, you are wasting time with me and me with you. I can schedule the appointments, but I just got done taking time out of my busy day to schedule something for at 12pm and now you email me telling me you scheduled something else... I deal with 20 other clients schedules. Most people in New York charge fees for this very reason...." Needless to say it would have been awkward looking at apartments with the agent after this point, so I told him he could take me off his schedule. I don't feel it's necessary taking time out of my busy day to feel sorry for his busy day. In the end I would be willing to pay for better help than what this company was able to give me.

Beware of everything they don't tell you. We rented from The National. A: You have to move in on a weekday and what they won't tell you is that if you move a couple pieces on a weekend, they will fine you $1000. B: There is a $500 non-refundable fee to move in on a weekday so that some guy can sit at the front door and open it for you. C: They are non-responsive and don't do anything on time. D: DO NOT PAY MORE THAN $2200 FOR A CONDO RENTAL. It's not worth it. E: CHECK TO SEE IF PARKING IS INCLUDED FIRST BEFORE SIGNING ANYTHING. Parking adds another $200 on your rent if parking is not included. Bottom line - Philly Apartment Company is awful. They don't communicate with Blue Square Realty for the rental (they manage the building at The National), and then they will fine you for not knowing the 50 different people you're supposed to talk to. Absolutely ridiculous to live in a city where you're likely to get shot and/or mugged.

Let me start by explaining how I use to work here. With this said reviews are mixed for one reason. People can have a good experience but chances are you will not. There is a 10% chance that you will have a good experience as there is 1 good worker that you can count on for every 9 unreliable workers. This company does not pay its employees, it is 100% commission based and having been a top producer for them I did not make over 300 a week and you will still have to pay taxes out of this. They promise you payments by certain times after you make deals and they will not pay you when they say. This company hires workers that are completely inexperienced and unqualified because the position is tailored to a horrific experience for both the worker and customer. If you use this company you will be working with people that are not trained whatsoever and are likely to mess up the dates and locations of appointments. Bottom line is I would not support this organization as it is simply structured on the behalf of tops-level positions, its customer service is horrible, and the employees you will be working with are more often unreliable because they can't keep good workers there.

Response from the owner - 7 months ago
We have never had anyone work for our firm with the name Dan Cocker. Regardless, we are sorry you felt the need to leave this kind of review. Our most important asset is our team. To call our staff "unreliable" and "horrific" diminishes the hard work of each of our team members. Also, to imply that we do not treat our team members well is unfair and salacious. No organization is perfect, but we provide all the opportunities for our team members to be successful and try to give each of our renters a great experience. In over 10 years in business, we have helped many individuals earn a great living and many have gone on to higher positions within the company or have transitioned into great positions with other companies. In closing, even though your review is unfair and disappointing, we wish you the best of luck in future endeavors. Thank you.

You would think if someone was going to create a company they would start with an idea around taking something that sucks, like moving, and make it less sucky. The Philly Apartment Company seems to think you take something sucky, like moving, and making it absolutely HORRIFIC. They are paid by landlords when you sign a lease. So your preferences are of no interest to them. They just want to get as many people to their listings as possible because that increases their chances of getting someone to sign. Stay away from these people, completely unprofessional.

This company rented me an apartment with no heat and bad plumbing. The property had several violation from L&I and was not fit for human habitation I was very disappointed with my experience and would recommend you run the other way. If them or Atlas Property Management has anything to do with the property.

Initially my search for an apartment through Philly Apartment Company started out promising, the realtor was polite and the property was beautiful. My roommate and I chose the apartment we wanted and sent in our application and fees, and then everything fell to pieces. It took days to get an email response, we never got any verification that our payments were recieved, and now its 4 days until we're supposed to move in, and we still don't have keys. We haven't gotten the signed lease back from the owner and the realtor is almost impossible to reach. We each have over $2,000 put into this apartment already in their hands. I went to pick up the keys today (after emailing my realtor this morning saying I would be there at 12:30pm) and she didnt have them. Meanwhile, as she was talking to me, she was standing there reading her email from her phone - so i know she got my email and just didnt have the decency to let me know not to travel all the way across the city on my lunch break to not get the keys. Her name is Stephanie. My advice, avoid the company all together. The only positive feedback I have is that the people in the reception area are very friendly and quick to help, however it's ultimately up to the realtor to get them the appropriate information. Which doesn't happen.
