About Us

Baxter Properties is a family operated Real Estate company based in West Chester, PA specializing in commercial properties and luxury apartments.   We are committed to developing, building, and managing top quality properties based upon excellence in construction and dedication to customer satisfaction. This philosophy is the foundation of our business and our reputation.

We own and manage several “Class A” office buildings in prime locations including West Chester, Exton, and Newtown Square, PA totaling over 135,000 square feet of high-end office space.  We cater to small and midsize businesses who desire a strong presence in a prominent building.  Some of our prestigious tenants include Berkshire Hathaway Fox & Roach Realtors (aka Berkshire Hathaway or Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors), PA Orthopedic Center/Premier PT, Ryder Transportation Systems, Life Counseling, Bayada Nurses, just to name a few.

We also own and manage apartment and townhome communities in West Chester, PA.  At our traditional community, Highgate, we offer completely renovated 1 bedroom apartments, as well as 2 & 3 bedroom two-story townhouses.   Our newest community, Harrison Hill, is a 55 & over completely independent luxury rental community for active adults offering bright and open floor plans with expansive views.  Extraordinary design, quality construction, superior resident relations, and great locations have earned us exceptional approval ratings.   We are among the last family owned rental communities in the West Chester market, and with over 45 years of continuous experience running luxury apartments, we are dedicated to maintaining our reputation for excellence.

The company was founded by Richard (Dick) Baxter who worked with his brother Ed Jr. building custom homes in 1957.  In 1968 Dick built Highgate Apartments with his father Ed working with him during the construction phase.  A few years later Dick built a second apartment community and took a break from construction to run the 300+ apartment homes.   In the late 1980’s Dick’s sons came into the business and led the company in a new direction, concentrating on commercial real estate.  Today the sons continue to lead the company and preserve the reputation as they cultivate the incoming 4th generation of Baxters to carry the family’s torch.

We are honored to have an outstanding team working with us, (most of whom have been with us for many decades) who lead our success through their pride, dedication and shared commitment to customer satisfaction.

From our family and staff, THANK YOU for visiting Baxter Properties.
