It is Eenhoorn’s on-going commitment to satisfy our residents by setting new standards for superior services, to provide our co-workers a creative and challenging work environment, and to reward our investors by enhancing the value of our properties. We welcome you to experience Eenhoorn, where people come first.
Our statement embodies the core culture of Eenhoorn. People are at the heart of everything we do. Since 1988, our innovative approaches have positioned Eenhoorn as an industry leader. Our comprehensive organizational structure and cultivating learning environment empower our team members to “take ownership over their careers” and make a true difference in our resident's lives and experiences. Our service-oriented focus and commitment to excellence is the fundamental strategy to how we do business.
Eenhoorn operates as a private, low-profile company funded with patient capital and dedicated to pursuing conservative, countercyclical investments. Rather than syndicate holdings, we invest on a long term basis and self-manage the majority of assets. We are recognized by large institutional lenders and sellers as being innovative, capable of quickly analyzing complex financial and ownership structures, and well capitalized.
This philosophy has established Eenhoorn as the largest globally invested multi-family investor based in West Michigan.
THE BEGINNING - Founded in 1988 by Carl and Paul Heule, Eenhoorn has always subscribed to a conservative, hands-on, counter-cyclical investment strategy.
1988-1998 - Eenhoorn begins with 23 units in Heritage Hill, Grand Rapids, Michigan. In its first 10 years, Eenhoorn grows to 2,000 apartment units and 350,000 square feet of office space with offices and developments on three continents.
1999-2008 - Over the second decade, Eenhoorn developed apartments, a school, and also acquired a luxury mid-rise mixed-use building. Eenhoorn expanded its investment and management into six new states.
2008-PRESENT - As a result of the economic turmoil of 2008-2010, Eenhoorn was able to further expand its footprint while many others were in liquidation mode. Furthering its success, Eenhoorn acquired two portfolios in August 2016 consisting of nearly 2,000 units in 13 different states. In addition, Eenhoorn commenced entitlement and development projects in the San Francisco area, Miami South Beach, Lake Michigan's Shoreline, and the Netherlands. Today Eenhoorn has grown to nearly 300 employees.
From development and renovation to management and negotiation, Eenhoorn is at the forefront of improving the lives of individuals at work, home, and play.
