About Alden Short

Our History:

Alden Short, Inc was founded with a small 6 unit apartment complex in 1976 on the belief that affordable housing should be easily accessible.  The company evolved to meet the challenges of our tenants by expanding our rental criteria to help those tenants who face problems due to bad rental history, a few evictions on their record, or other problems. The company has grown over the past 40 years to manage over 900 homes and 50 plus apartment complexes throughout the Dallas County, for a total of over 2,500 units!  We are proud to say we are one of the largest Property Management Companies in Dallas.  Now on the eve of our 40th Anniversary we are proud to introduce the next phase of Alden Short’s evolution. We have strengthened vendor relationships that we have had for decades and pioneered new relationships to offer new and exciting offerings to tenants and owners.  With the help from our software vendor, PropertyWare, we can proudly introduce our new website and tenant portal allowing our tenants to have greater access and ease of use when interacting with the company. We are excited and reinvigorated as we continue to transform the rental market.  We are thankful for those tenants that have been with us for a long time, as well as those vendors that helped innovate our business.  We look forward to another transformative 40 years as we help align tenant and owner relationships!
