IMT Celebrates 30 Years

Today, IMT Residential is a leading nationwide apartment owner and operator with over 17,000 apartment homes, but many do not know that the company’s humble beginning involves three childhood friends coming together to create a business partnership that stands strong 30 years later.

In 1992, two partners, who grew up directly across the street from each other as kids, founded IMT Residential. At this time, IMT’s original portfolio of multifamily communities consisted of only four apartment buildings totaling 62 apartment homes, but the founders had high hopes that the company would continue to grow throughout California.

In 1996, a third partner who was a classmate and teammate with one of the original founders joined IMT, and together, the company’s vision grew to acquire multifamily apartment communities outside of California. With its first multifamily acquisition in Houston, TX in 1997, IMT Residential successfully began its nationwide expansion and presence. IMT Residential continued to opportunistically enter into new markets with portfolio acquisitions in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

What started off with four apartment buildings totaling 62 apartment homes and one employee in 1992 has turned into a nationwide company with more than 50 apartment communities totaling over 17,000 apartment homes and over 500 employees today. And to think, it all started from three childhood friends who grew up in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, CA with the American dream to start a business.

 “We have achieved this major milestone through the commitment and dedication of our very talented associates who work tirelessly every day to support their fellow co-workers and to serve our valued residents. It is this team-oriented, supportive culture that exists throughout the entire organization that has enabled us to retain our industry’s very best people who strive to improve every day and continually search for ways for us to do things better and differently. Together we have dedicated ourselves to 30 years of ‘putting you first’ and we are proud to celebrate our first 30 years in the multifamily industry as we look to the next chapter as a new opportunity to set new standards for excellence in our field.”
