In the early 1960s, two guys at the University of Michigan – Sam Zell and Bob Lurie – started managing student apartment buildings. Over the next five decades, the buildings would change but the basic philosophy would remain the same: invest in properties at the right price and hire the best people to manage them well.
From that modest beginning rose an industry leader, one that joined the NYSE in 1993 and was the first apartment company in the S&P 500 in 2001.
Today, our portfolio of high-quality properties in growth markets – New York City, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, to name a few – provides homes where people most want to live.
We still buy, build, rehab and manage our apartment communities, but along the way, we didn’t just grow; we transformed how business is done. From our state-of-the-art operating system to the way we develop our people, cultivate our culture and connect with our residents, Equity Residential is leading the way.
We are building value for our shareholders, residents and employees by combining the resources of a large company and a national presence with strong local management and expertise. Our employees are really good at what they do, work hard and play nice, appreciate the community at large and value the contributions of others. At Equity, we take pride in providing a culture where employees can be themselves and be heard. – less
