gkhouses opened its Property Management doors in March of 2008 at the beginning of one of the worst real estate downturns in recent history. We only had 30 houses to manage…and those were our own houses.

We fought hard and worked harder to become an ‘insanely great property management company’.

Slowly we gained the trust of homeowners and investors from around the country.

Today, we manage over 1,100 houses in Birmingham.

But we didn’t stop there. We opened our Nashville, TN office in April and acquired another Property Management company in May increasing our total houses managed to over 1,300…and our eyes are already on our next market.

We have incredibly gifted people on our team. They’re passionate about the vision of gkhouses and they work hard to make sure we reach our goals.

We are a tight-knit group of like-minded individuals who collectively contribute to gkhouses’ increasing influence in the single family rental space. It is an environment where we challenge one another on a daily basis to perform at the highest level…even when it is not comfortable.
