Enveste Real Estate

Enveste was founded by John Matthews, an entrepreneur hailing from Boston, MA. A few twists and turns (and some BAD landlords!) later, he ended up in Philadelphia. Having been through his fair share of rentals, John knew what he didn’t like in a landlord, and, inspired by a growing conviction that tenants should be treated as people and not just a quick buck, Enveste Real Estate was born.

As a direct response to John’s personal experiences as a renter, Enveste was built on the qualities that were lacking in other landlords. Those qualities are the core values of Enveste: empathy, a personal touch, and responsiveness. It is our hope that each tenant feels valued, knows that there are people who care about their comfort, and that all concerns are addressed as quickly as possible.

Above all else, we hope to make it clear that Enveste is not some mega-million dollar corporation. Enveste is a local Philadelphia business, hoping to make a difference in the lives of at least a few of our peers and neighbors. We care about our community and aim to provide not just a living space, but a home.

In order to achieve these goals, Enveste partnered with Miles Curtis, another local Philadelphian in the Spring of 2016. Around the same time, Enveste partnered with Mitchell Comeau. Both of these individuals share our core values and they have brought a high level of enthusiasm to our team.

Revitalizing Philadelphia

Enveste and our partners pride ourselves on not only our attention to our tenants, but also our commitment to improving the community. The vast majority of our properties were in some state of disrepair; whether they were simply an eyesore to their neighborhood or worse – a structural hazard. Through the 15 rehabs we’ve completed, we’ve gained a plethora of knowledge that we are excited to use to further improve Philadelphia. Before and after pictures can be seen in our portfolio page.
