Our Company

Pettinaro is a family owned and operated full-service vertically integrated real estate company based in Newport, Delaware. Founded in 1965 by Verino Pettinaro as a construction company, based out of his garage, Pettinaro now owns and operates properties in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Florida. Since 2005, the company has been under the leadership of Verino’s son. The Pettinaro companies currently employ over 200 individuals.

The commercial portfolio of more than 4.5 million square feet includes retail, office, mixed use, industrial, and land properties across a four state region. In addition, land holdings are available for build-to-suit opportunities of up to 2 million additional approved square feet. Pettinaro Management, LLC strives to provide the highest level of customer service to over 500 tenants across the portfolio.

Pettinaro Residential, LLC consists of more than 2,500 existing apartment homes located in Delaware, Maryland and Florida. With the increased demand in multi-family housing, several of these communities are currently undergoing expansions adding several hundred apartments to the residential portfolio.

In response to the growing needs of the Wilmington business community in the late 90s, Cindy Pettinaro Wilkinson founded a corporate rental division. This division simplifies the relocation process for companies or individuals by offering flexible term leases in luxury apartments, condominiums and town homes at select Pettinaro Residential communities.

Pettinaro’s award winning in-house architecture and construction division, Pettinaro Construction Company, Inc. (PCCI), provides support across the portfolio. Designing and constructing both commercial and residential structures, PCCI works directly with our customers to execute customized construction tailored to their needs.

Over the past 50 years, Pettinaro has made a major impact on the landscape in Delaware by revitalizing old, tired properties into exclusive places to work and live. Pettinaro has continued to grow its diverse portfolio through acquisitions and development while remaining a one stop shop for leasing, property management and construction.
