About Us

DARO was founded in 1935 by Dunbar A. Rosenthal (DARO is an acronym of his initials). Now, with approximately 80 employees and 20 residential communities, DARO remains a strong leader in owner-managed firms of the Metropolitan DC area.

In 2014 Daro began operating under new management leadership and since this time we have implemented a number of positive changes which include but are not limited to improved customer services, and a large investment of capital into the portfolio.

This is how we are able to differentiate DARO from other property managers in the metro DC area. Our on-site staff consists of Resident Relations, the Maintenance Service Team, Leasing Specialists and Community. Our Corporate office is on location so please don’t hesitate to reach out with complements or constructive criticism.

Our Mission

Our mission is to become DC’s landlord of choice for tenants seeking the charm and grandeur of DC’s historic properties, but desire to have the comfort of a Class A service experience. Our Company aims to become DC’s leader and innovator in “21st century” rental apartment communities and residential property management services. This mission, we believe, is best accomplished by (i) owning walkable properties near transit and neighborhood amenities and (ii) enhancing them with lively and vibrant tenant communities benefiting from the economic and racial diversity that are at the core of “urban place making”.

We strive to provide a positive environment through a commitment to service excellence. Each DARO employee strives to adhere to this mission in everything that we do, whether it is maintaining a clean and comfortable apartment community for our residents to something as simple as answering the telephone each and every time with a smile.
