It’s an important part of our legacy, and it’s what continues to make us special today. The Gene B.

Glick built its first apartment community in 1962, and by the mid-1970s the business focused solely on multi-family housing development and management.
Our company’s reputation was built on our founder’s commitment to integrity, quality construction, excellent service, and superbly maintained communities.
