Kathleen da Silva

Director of Leasing, Asset Management

Get To Know Kathleen:

Wife and soon-to-be mom to a little boy. I have two adorable cats, Shinobu and Saber. Before joining DMG, I worked in property management in several communities in Buffalo, NY. As a native New Yorker who grew up in Long Island, I love that I have the opportunity to move back home and re-explore my old stomping grounds with my family.

Why I Chose DMG:

My most enjoyable and rewarding work has been working with site teams to improve their leasing and marketing processes and managing student housing communities. We had to seize the opportunity to move back home to family near NYC (after having lived in Buffalo for 10 years). Out of all the companies I was considering, DMG provided me with growth and development opportunities that would continue to hone my skills in my career.

Why I Chose My Career:

I worked my way through student services positions while in my undergraduate program which benefited me and the students around me. I realized that I made this a career in college student housing services. That led me to pursue my passion for studying the environment during my undergraduate career while continuing to be promoted through several student housing positions I worked at.

Life Outside Work:

I love gardening, cooking, baking, and painting when I am home. I also enjoy traveling (been to Brazil, Japan, Dubai, and more!)
