Team Leader & REALTOR®
Realtor, Contractor, and Television Host, Rachel Street is the go-to person if you are looking to get into the real estate game. Rachel is Team Leader of The Street Group at SPACE & COMPANY and President of Hestia Construction, LLC, a woman-owned construction company offering full construction services and design-driven custom homes. She is also the Host of Philly Street Flippin', an HGTV and DIY Network TV show that follows her as she renovates and sells homes in her native Philadelphia. Her construction projects and real estate listings have been featured in many local and national publications, including Philadelphia Magazine, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Curbed Philly, and County Lines Magazine, among others.
A graduate of Temple University, Rachel is also a classically trained singer, and has lived abroad in both Italy and Mexico. She is fluent in both Italian and Spanish, and runs a free English as a Second Language program for adults in South Philadelphia. Rachel continues to perform as a classical musician throughout the city. Although Rachel currently resides in East Passyunk, she has lived in many of the different Philadelphia neighborhoods, and loves exploring new areas to hunt for the most unique and interesting properties for her clients.
In addition to her community involvement and unmatched neighborhood knowledge, Rachel also has a diverse background in the real estate industry. She has worked as a Loan Servicing Manager, managing a loan portfolio of up to 23 loans with an aggregate principal balance of over $100 million; Mortgage Analyst and Commercial Loan Originator, helping to underwrite and close over $300 million of commercial loans; and as a Commercial Property Manager. Rachel has also completed extensive studies toward becoming a General Appraiser through The Appraisal Institute. Her experience in commercial real estate taught her how to perform extensive financial and valuation analysis of properties, a skill which is difficult to find in a Realtor in the residential market. The Street Group is based on providing that same in-depth analysis to our residential clients in order to not only help them find a home that they will love, but also to make sure that they are making the best financial investment.
Under her construction company, Hestia Construction, LLC, Rachel works with investors and home owners and can provide guidance on choosing renovations that will both fit your budget and add maximum value to your property. Hestia Construction, LLC also designs and renovates custom homes that are listed for sale in the Philadelphia area, and specializes in creating unique high-end designs that will not be found anywhere else on the market. Rachel is not your typical "flipper"- she likes to find architecturally interesting properties that are run-down or abandoned, and spend extra time and resources to create exciting modern spaces that also honor the history and unique original features of the home. Her projects tend to sell very quickly- most of the time before they hit the MLS- so be sure to check in on our website or follow our facebook page for upcoming listings! All custom homes by Hestia Construction, LLC are listed exclusively with The Street Group.
Whether it’s a first time home buyer or a seasoned investor, Rachel’s clients benefit from both her in-depth understanding of property valuation, finance, design, and construction, as well as her genuine excitement to show off the city she loves.
