BH Management Services, LLC was founded in 1993 by Harry Bookey with just five communities under management. Today, the company has grown to approximately 150 communities in 17 states with a total of more than 44,000 apartment homes and well over 1,000 dedicated employees.
BH Management Services provides property management services to communities owned entirely by BH affiliates, communities owned by joint ventures consisting of BH affiliates and other partners, and communities wholly owned by third party institutions and individuals. In each case, BH employs trained, qualified on-site management, leasing and maintenance personnel to attend to the day-to-day needs of the community and its residents and prospects. The on-site staff is guided and supervised by a member of our regional management staff and supported by numerous corporate team members in a host of corporate divisions including –
