Organization Overview

From Local to National
Berkshire was founded in 1966 by George and Douglas Krupp, two brothers who wanted to change the way residents experienced apartment living. As the company grew, they realized the importance of hiring the right talent and investing in those individuals to operate the company. To learn from their experiences. To listen to the needs to both residents and associates to build a great company.

Over the years, by listening and attending to the need of residents and improving our business model in the process, the company grew and evolved, touching lives in markets across the country. Berkshire started small, then grew substantially over the next 50 years.

At Berkshire, our people are our company and create our community. Since 1966, Berkshire has been dedicated to providing our residents with a curated living experience. Our priority is to cultivate the best environment for our people who, in turn, focus on providing the best living experience for our valued residents.

We invite you to come tour our unique properties and see the difference for yourself.

Our Focus for the Future
The next 50 years for Berkshire will be even more important than its first 50 years. With that in mind, Berkshire has active initiatives in place that focus on our role as a corporate citizen and places special emphasis on our role in making the world a better place to live.
