The DeRosa Group is a family-owned business headquartered in Trenton, New Jersey. We have been investing in residential and commercial property with a mission to “transform lives through real estate.” The founders, Matt & Liz, started investing in real estate in 2004 with the purchase of a duplex outside of Philadelphia with a $30,000 private loan.

We have vast experience in bringing properties to their highest and best use, which includes repositioning single family homes, multi-family, apartment buildings, mixed-use, retail, and office space. We have the capability to handle properties in various states of repair from gut-rehabs to value-add opportunities. We work hard to incorporate our core values - integrity, transparency, and win-win partnerships - in everything we do.


  • Passive “hands off” investments to individuals interested in diversifying their portfolio
  • Strategic partnerships with seasoned investors that can help expand our footprint into new markets
  • “Real world” educational resources to fellow real estate investors so they can take their business to the next level

We are committed to making a difference in the world by providing quality housing, flexible commercial space, and helping others build their wealth through real estate.
