It’s an important part of our legacy and what continues to make us special today. The Gene B. Glick Company was born out of a young WWII veteran’s desire to help his fellow GIs build homes for their families. Eugene (Gene) Glick founded the company in 1947 in Indianapolis, and by the early 1960s it was the largest single-family home builder in Indiana.
Glick built its first apartment community in 1962 and by the mid-1970s the business focused solely on multifamily 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.
Today, Glick is one of the largest privately held real estate ownership, development, and management firms in the U.S., with more than 20,000 units in 13 states.
