Dharma Home Suites’ History

Eunju Kim Halvorsen and Toivo Halvorsen founded Dharma Home Suites. It all started by renting out furnished apartments in Manhattan in 2008. In the beginning, they had only one studio, but guests enjoyed the location and proximity to Times Square and customers discovered that they were able to connect to with their needs and Dharma Home Suites provided great hospitality and satisfying service. After a while, they accumulated one more studio, eventually a third. In many ways you could say they survived by renting out a few apartments near Times Square.

The Halvorsens continued this rental business at a moderate level while pursuing an MBA with a focus on Sustainability. During this time, they realized that business could be a great way to have a positive impact on people (customers, employees, partners and competitors) and also protect and preserve the environment. After 3 years of operations in Manhattan, the company moved all of their operations, in 2012, to Jersey City. And in 2013 the company opened up what is now the main office on 333 Washington Street, Jersey City, NJ.

In the spring of 2013, the company also decided to turn a new page by using environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning products. Ever since, Dharma Home Suites cleans all of their apartments and laundry using Seventh Generation and other non-toxic cleaning materials.

In efforts to expand the business, June 2014, Dharma Home Suites opens up in Miami. The company now has 2 locations in Miami Downtown (Brickell) and Miami Beach. Since the inception of the first Miami units, the company has steadily grown its inventory and following base by hosting guests from all over the world. As 2016 comes to an end, the company now operates across the east coast with main focuses in Miami and New York Metro market and with its recent February 2016 launch of the Novia building in, the up and coming west side of, Hoboken, the company has set a new standard for corporate housing in the New York Metro area.
