Real Estate with a Personal Touch

Dryden Apartment Company was established in the 1970’s. The first properties we purchased, both located in Dryden NY, were the Brookside Apartments and the Opera House Apartments. These two properties were the foundation of our company and homes to many Tompkins County residents over the years. We’ve taken great pride and care in helping so many members of our community find wonderful apartments they are excited to call home.

In addition to providing rentals to the community for over 40 years we have also evolved into one of the areas leading rental property management providers. Property owners trust us to effectively manage their investments all over Tompkins County.
