Renting to Morgantown for over 60 years, Prete Renal/JDLMP, LLC is the benchmark in quality and location for family-owned rental companies.
Prete Rental/JDLMP is a second-generation family business that has been providing housing to the Morgantown community since 1957. James A. Prete, the founder, had a keen eye for strategic property acquisition and used quality building materials like brick, steel, and concrete to construct buildings in the Evansdale area of WVU. His wife, Doris, was his partner, and their combined work ethic helped to plan for the growth of this area. Their properties became more desirable as Evansdale expanded over the years.
The founder's daughter graduated from WVU with a business major and decided to preserve her father's legacy by joining the family business. Her husband also joined the business, and they have continued to provide quality housing to generations of WVU families. Their units have been updated over the decades with cosmetic changes, making them a desirable residence for students attending the WVU Evansdale Campus. The units are conveniently located near various support services such as the City of Morgantown Bus Route, the WVU PRT, as well as grocery stores, banks, and gas stations.
In addition to their popular Evansdale locations, the Star City units offer a quieter, neighborhood setting for those seeking more permanent rental options. The founders' pride in their work and the business's history is evident in their interactions with their tenants. They are proud to carry on their parents' work and look forward to meeting new tenants and showing them the business's legacy. Prete Rental/JDLMP's motto, "Renting to Morgantown for Over 60 Years," reflects their commitment to providing quality housing to the Morgantown community for many years to come.
