Who We Are

We are Habitat 

We’re a full-service real estate company, with an emphasis on service. We believe that our relationships with our clients, partners, residents, and fellow team members should stand as strong as the buildings we develop and manage, which is why Habitat was recognized as the 2020 Property Management Company of the Year by IREM.

We work across a wide variety of property types – from affordable housing communities to condominiums to luxury high-rise towers – but, no matter the project, our people-first approach remains the same.

We’ve transformed communities, won awards and established ourselves as industry leaders. But none of that happened overnight. Here are just a few of the milestones on our path to becoming one of the most prominent names in Chicago real estate.


We founded The Habitat Company 

to manage a series of ambitious housing properties – including a 28-acre urban renewal project on Chicago’s South Side – based on our philosophy of treating every resident with the same level of commitment, regardless of their means.


Since then, we’ve proven our expertise with

luxury residences, condominiums, affordable housing and everything in between.


Our success with affordable housing led to us becoming receiver – and eventually the largest private property manager – for the Chicago Housing Authority. But we do more than manage affordable housing; Habitat Affordable Group also specializes in affordable housing development, acquisition and community development.  Habitat Affordable Group is a symbol of our commitment to helping communities in need.

As we’ve expanded into new markets across six different states, what’s kept us on the map has been our work across the full spectrum of multi-family housing

with our founder’s commitment as our guiding principle.


“No project is only an investment in real estate. It is an investment in the future of the community and in the lives of the people who will live and work there.”
