About Pad Porter

Our Story

A life on the move.

Before settling in Philadelphia, I lived in six cities all over the world. I moved twenty-six times, and while my love of traveling and exploring new places will never cease, I was searching for a landing spot.

A place to call home.

I found my home in Philadelphia while attending the University of Pennsylvania. Following graduation, I decided to buy my first home, and was so excited to explore a new neighborhood in the city!

Overwhelmed

Turns out, being a homeowner is a LOT of work. I didn’t have time to go back and forth to the store twenty times, I couldn’t stay home and wait for contractors – my house was taking too long to become my home.

The Challenge.

From preparing to move, to moving day, to follow-up maintenance – there was too much to do, and all of it required me being home when it was extremely inconvenient.

Conducting the research.

It was time to find out if I was alone in my inability to handle everything that came with moving and maintaining a home. I decided to poll busy residents (owners and renters alike) across the city.

The results.

I was not alone in my feelings. It was pretty clear: Philly residents needed a trustworthy, one-stop resource for all things home.

Pad Porter was created.

Your time is valuable, and we want you to spend it loving your home and enjoying your city.
