We’re Your Kind of People.
Bernstein Management Corporation is a regional leader in real estate management, investment and development. We own and manage an investment portfolio of 93+ properties including 3.8 million square feet of commercial space, and over 6,000 apartments in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
It all started back in 1953 with Norman Bernstein. He had this crazy idea to build a real estate management company that puts people first. He believed integrity should be at the core of everything we do – and we’re proud to say, six decades later, it still is. As we evolve and grow, we’ll continue to make good decisions that benefit our residents, employees, investors, brokers, and our communities. What’s important to you is important to us: financial strength and stability, steadfast leadership, long-term investments in desirable locations, exceptional and uncommon service, innovation, and fresh experiences. We’re people who do our best to make your life more incredible.
People with Purpose.
Some of them have been here for decades. One held a tenant’s hand through a medical emergency. One keeps her team on their toes with surprise adventures. One bakes for the entire office once a week. These are just a handful of over 180 employees who always go the extra mile.
Meet the People Who Work for You.
More than leaders, we’re experts on living well. We are passionate about people and treat others the way we want to be treated.
Helping Others – It’s Just How We’re Programmed.
When we talk about going above and beyond for our people, we don’t just mean our residents and tenants. As a company and as individuals, we share a commitment to corporate social responsibility by serving others and our communities. It’s an important part of the Bernstein culture. We encourage and support our team members to give back via company-wide events, volunteer leave, and a charitable matching donation program. We’re proud to have partnered with so many wonderful national and local organizations including Habitat For Humanity, Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, Martha’s Table and Children’s National Hospital.
Small Changes Make a Big Difference.
At BMC, we’re committed to making positive, sustainable changes that will benefit our communities and the world. That’s where our Green Living Initiative comes in. By taking action to reduce our carbon footprint, increase the efficiency of our buildings, and conserve our resources, we build and maintain living environments that are not only comfortable to be in, but also environmentally friendly.
LED bulbs in most apartments and common areas
LED’s last up to seven times longer and use 80% less electricity than comparable incandescents.
Energy Star-rated air conditioners and refrigerators
These appliances are at least 10% more efficient than equivalent conventional models.
Heating buildings with natural gas, the cleanest burning fossil fuel
Natural gas significantly reduces carbon emissions compared with heating oil.
Insulating hot water and steam pipes to reduce fuel consumption.
Each one-foot section of three-inch insulated steam pipe saves 342 BTUs per hour.
We’re doing our part, here’s what you can do.
Recycle! Every Bernstein building features convenient recycling bins, so there’s no reason not to.
Even more annoying than a steadily dripping faucet is how much water it wastes: over 500 gallons/month! Please notify us of leaking basins, tubs and toilets right away.
Choose energy efficient products and avoid anything that comes with excessive packaging.
Don’t forget to turn off lights, TVs, computers, and yes, phone chargers. Even switched off electronics may use power while plugged into an outlet.
Keep windows closed during heating/cooling season. If you experience conditions that are either too hot or too cold in your apartment, please contact your building manager.
