About us.

We do this work because we know how important it is to nest. We obsess over aesthetics, comfort, and cozy. Because we’ve been tenants and owners, we know how to deliver results for our owners, and quality to our modern dwellers. Happy home means a happier home life. Happy modern dwellers and happy home-owners cultivate stronger, sustainable and robust local communities. We’re for that!

When was the last time you took a pledge? When we started NEST, we did. We pledged that our small business would do more than turn a profit. For us, a strong bottom line means we serve our community and our planet. When we started nesting in coffee shops to build our business, we figured, why can’t everyone benefit? We’ll be your neighbor, after all. So we decided to make the entire community our NEST.

Call it hippie or hipster, we care about where we live and think if we’ve only got one planet to work with, we better be wise with it. We developed our community pledge with this philosophy in mind. Join us….we have tips for you in there too.

Meet the Team.

We’re particular about our home, you should be too.

Tools & Services

For Tenants

Being a homeowner can be one disaster after another but being a tenant can be much more relaxing! Still, certain home maintenance issues are something we all have to be aware of. Have a maintenance request? Log in Here.

For Owners

We’ve been tenants. We’re meticulous homeowners. Now we’re matchmakers. We offer turnkey property management services from tenant placement to 24/hr on call service. We've got every base covered.

Turn Over Services & Fees

We found a perfect balance between positive cash flow, and positive experiences for tenants and for owners. Our property management fees are highly competitive but our services are extensive.

Design + Renovation

What sets your rental or home apart from others? If you don’t know the answer, we think you might benefit from our design & renovation. From sophisticated to simply cozy, Nest can make any space feel like home.


We don’t want to be biased but…we’re biased. Living in the city proper means you can ditch the car, walk to nightlife and never see a strip mall again. We focus on DC rentals so if suburban living is your style, we’ll have to offer you a referral!
