In the 1960s, two guys at the University of Michigan – Sam Zell and Bob Lurie – began to manage students’ apartment buildings. During the next five decades, the buildings changed but the basic philosophy would remain the same: investing in properties at the right price and hire the best people to manage them well.

From that humble start an industry leader raised, who in 1993 joined the NYSE and in 2001 was the first apartment company in the S & P 500. Today, their portfolio of high quality properties in the growth of the markets of  Washington DC, Seattle, New York, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles, to name a few – offers homes where people most want to live.
