Our Story

About UsDAZWA Properties is a family-run business that has properties in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Connecticut. We find homes with charm, completely re-finish them to the utmost beauty and safety, and rent them out to students, professionals, and families.

The company was founded by Bill and Derek Shepard, a father and son team who saw great oppurtunity and charm in many of the homes in Keene. They knew with a little vision and a lot of work they could restore the classic homes to create spaces that they’d call home.

The name DAZWA is an acronym for each member of Bill and Derek’s family; Derek, Adrienne, Zack, William and Amanda. Family is very important to them and they understand that a good, safe home is often the root of every family.
