Who We Are

Our History

Since 1987, Daniel Woods Real Estate has been the investors’ choice to buy, sell, and manage real estate properties in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Our services are provided by highly educated licensed professionals with extensive experience in real estate investments and property management, as well as the related fields of tax and accounting.

Our tax and accounting backgrounds have taught us that it’s all about the details, down to the penny. Many property management companies overlook the little details, or ignore what they perceive as burdensome rules and regulations. That’s not our style. These kinds of oversights can, and often do, lead to increased expense and liability for property owners. We pride ourselves on the attention we pay to details, which sets us apart.

We offer full-service management for single family homes, multi-family properties, and commercial storefronts in Delaware and Philadelphia Counties in PA, including West Philadelphia, Chester, Upper Darby, Yeadon, Sharon Hill, Lansdowne, Drexel Hill, Brookhaven, Marcus Hook, and Upper Chichester

We seamlessly work with clients who live inside and outside of the Philadelphia area with the use of technology and best practice communication systems

A few things set our company apart...

  1. The Perspective of a Financial Professional. Get precise insight on property valuation to help better reach your financial goals from a team that includes a former certified appraiser and a Wharton MBA in Finance.
  2. An Experienced Partner. You can leverage the experience of a company that has been serving clients in the Philly metro for over 30 years. We also have done transactions with vacant land, commercial storefronts, self-storage garages, multi-family properties, and distressed single-family homes.
  3. A Customized Marketing Approach. You will not have to ask “what are they going to do to market my house.” We will show you our plan to attract a flow of qualified buyers from the start
  4. Focus on Transparency & Education. You will learn knowledge and skills for more confidence not only for current but also future transactions. We strive to be on Team YOU, not to just churn through a quick transaction.
  5. Support & Connections for Success. Whether you need a contractor or access to capital, we can help you with your resource challenges
  6. Investor/Landlord Friendly. You will work with an agent who understands how to help you crunch the number first and attract financing. We don’t just help investors; we are investors.

Veronica Woods Real Estate Advisor, Broker, Investor

Veronica finds joy connecting people for everything from hair salons to jobs. After spending 20 years working in Corporate America in Finance and Product Management for companies like Dun & Bradstreet, Merck, and Merrill Lynch, she turned her matchmaking skills to real estate. She joined the family real estate business—which was her very first job. You can listen to more about her journey in this podcast interview with the Real Estate Investor Goddesses.

What makes Veronica stand out from other realtors is her financial background. With an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Northwestern University, she does not run from the numbers. She spent over a decade running financial models to help her employers evaluate projects and products. This skill allows her to simplify the bottom line for a homeowner or forecast the return on investment for a developer.

Her real estate experience has been diverse. She has represented buyers and sellers of vacant land to single-family/multi-family homes within Delaware County and West Philadelphia in PA. She specializes in working with newbie investors, selling investment portfolios, downsizing seniors, and single women homebuyers.

She frequently speaks to community and alumni groups on topics such as “Financial Freedom through Real Estate Investing” and “Homebuying Fact or Fiction.” She also produces educational videos on her Real Estate Wisdom YouTube channel. She is the co-host of the new Rental Property Cafe podcast. She volunteers where she can impact change that empowers communities such as Making the Change Group, Summer Search, and the Community Design Collaborative.

Veronica is an entrepreneur at heart. She founded the online hair salon review site in 2008 and wrote the book “The A-List Salon: Insider Secrets of How Profitable Salons Wow Their Clients”. Veronica is a Delco native who now resides in Lansdowne, PA.

She is a proud Life member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
