Our History
Prior to the conception of MGC Real Estate Group in 2015, MG Real Estate Group (Miles & Generealis), founded in 1979, was one of the first pioneers of loft development in Philadelphia beginning with several loft projects in the Loft District, and subsequently expanding into Center City, Old City, Northern Liberties, and other neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Originating the idea of the live/work space lifestyle in the City of Brotherly Love, the founding partners’ backgrounds in lofts began in art fabrication and sculpture which helped to formulate the utilitarian live/work loft. They were drawn the open space and flexibility loft-style living and working provided, as well as the ability to customize, splash their walls with color, and move furniture easily on a whim. With that aside, MG Real Estate Group also operated as a full service residential brokerage, working with buyers and renters alike. 


Today
As of the MGC Real Estate Group's one year anniversary in April 2016, the company manages 20+ entities encompassing condominium/HOA residents, apartment complexes, and investor-owned entities. On the brokerage side, with 9+ successful agents grinding out residential and commercial deals day in, and day out - including (but not limited to) Trenton Stables (Fishtown), Frankford Square (Fishtown), and the impending South Square (Kensington) - MGC Real Estate is proving to be a formidable force that will undoubtedly go the distance in the Philadelphia real estate market.
