We'd like to welcome YOU home.

Our exceptional apartments (studio, one, two, three, & four bedroom units), & 1, 2, 3, & four bedroom townhouses feature an array of modern amenities, coupled with creative floor-plans & old-world design.  With properties located throughout Center City, all are walking distance to the Central Business District & Center City's historical & cultural attractions.  Philadelphia's plethora of world-class restaurants, bistros, & eateries, high-end & every day shopping options, world-renown museums, & performing arts venues are nearby, too.  Not to be overlooked, of course, are the region's best in "Eds & Meds" industries, colleges & universities; public transportation, Regional Rails, Patco Highspeed Line & Amtrak, & Philadelphia International Airport make virtually everything convenient.

We're proud to be among the earliest pioneers of Philadelphia's urban renaissance.  Now beyond our 3rd generation, we remain as committed as ever in offering distinctive, superbly maintained residences that combine the best of Philadelphia's unique old-world charm with today's must-have amenities to create the ultimate 21st century urban living.


Our experienced and friendly staff are ready to assist.

Abraham Levin started Levin Real Estate in 1909. As a new American Citizen, he pursued his vision of providing quality, affordable housing in post-industrial Philadelphia.

Using his leadership skills, drive and determination - He grew his fledgling firm from upstart to industry leader.

The second generation of Levins took it to the next level by becoming builders and developers in both the rapidly expanding Philadelphia suburbs and the city center, where gentrification began to take hold in the late 1950's.
Three+ generations later, Alvin Levin Real Estate continues to lead and grow - Creating and managing unique and inspiring upscale rental apartments + townhouses in center city.
Our dedicated service and support staff continue our founders strong commitment to professional property management and superior service.



My husband and I have lived in the Carriage House Apartments for 4 years and would continue to live here longer, if not for a move across the country.  Alvin Levin and his employees are very responsible landlords.  The building is very clean and well-maintained.  They provide storage in the basement and regular pest prevention (never seen a bug or rodent in our place).  I have no reservations about recommending this property or landlords to people looking to stay in a great Philly location.

Great landlord(s), office staff and team! Never had a bad interaction with them! They were always there to help when we needed and also very accommodating to my schedule conflicting with  theirs! Highly recommended and enjoy to future tenants :)

Alvin Levin & Son has been a great landlord. My building is always kept in very good condition. The floors and walls are cleaned frequently and all public spaces are kept nice and orderly, including the laundry room and basement areas. The company renovated the public spaces of the building this year and were always prompt in keeping residents informed of ongoing changes/issues. Rents are reasonable and fair. Any issues I had (leaks, clogs, etc) have been addressed quickly and professionally. I have had many landlords and these folks are definitely one of the best.
