Founded by Investors for Investors

KeyVest's Founding Story

As professional real estate investors themselves …

the founders understood the importance of having a well-qualified company managing their portfolio.

So they started their own.

KeyVest was founded by a group of professional investors who owned a 190+ single family home portfolio. They were dissatisfied with the property management companies in New Jersey, so they started their own in-house team to manage their investment portfolio.

Other investors approached the founders asking to have their investments managed as well.  These outside investors liked the standard to which we were managing our own portfolio. KeyVest has now expanded to help other property owners and investors – no matter how small or large the portfolio.
