Founded on a commitment to service, Home Properties truly cares about its residents and its employees, striving each day to create apartment communities people love to live in and a company people want to work for. It’s a commitment exemplified through its Pledge, honored by the company, and lived by its employees.
Home Properties’ predecessor company was founded in 1967 by twin brothers Nelson and Norman Leenhouts. In 1994, the company went public on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol HME. At that time, the company owned 15 apartment communities in Upstate New York. In 2015, Home Properties was acquired by Lone Star Funds and once again became a privately held company.

Home Properties’ expertise is in acquiring and upgrading apartment communities. All areas of the community are enhanced – landscaping, windows, kitchen cabinets, bath fixtures, and more. In addition, location is key – communities are located in close-in suburban areas where apartment supply is limited, the population is growing, and more people are renting due to high home prices. – less
