WHO WE ARE

We’re not just another property management company. Our essence lies in the passion of our team, their unwavering dedication to excellence, and their relentless pursuit of what’s best for our clients. In today’s world, expectations are higher, and we understand that. That’s why our focus extends beyond mere management; it’s about nurturing the vitality and well-being of every property.

It Started at Home

Our company started with friends coming together to build something better. To take on and change a stagnated industry. We started small and worked hard. Today, we’re an industry leader and we continue to grow.

About

An Idea was Born

During the process of hiring a property management company for our condo building in Chicago, it dawned on us – this business is ripe for innovation. It was all mom and pop. Which has its place. But we, and our other owners, expected more. A company was born.

100 and Counting

100 properties was a huge milestone for us. It said we weren’t a little guy any more. It said we were doing things right. It said we were going to stick around. Our hundredth building was a small one, 12 units, in a small neighborhood in Chicago. We still manage them with pride to this day, even as we’ve expanded to other cities. Maybe one day we’ll be global!

About

Building Value

As we continued our growth it became obvious that relying on “vendors” to provide the services, quality and customer experience we expected was always going to be a battle. So we decided to build those abilities from the ground up.

 

We started small but 360PROS includes handyman, plumbing, painting, heating & air, fire safety, exterminating and more. We have more control and accountability and are able to offer added value to our clients as a result. We still work with many talented providers, but we are very proud of our PROS team.

Technology Matters

Technology was the focus and we were on the forefront. Owners expected automation, ease of billing and communication. We created our own tech stack to meet the demands of our community associations and it paid off quickly. Our competitors couldn’t keep up, and our growth accelerated.

Team

It’s a core value. TEAM! That’s right, we have the very best talent out there. We knew that we had to hire the best if we were going to be the best. So we made the investment. And it’s paid off 100 times over. From our property managers to our customer service agents to our back of office staff. Well, I’ll just say it… our people are the best in the business.

Joining Forces

In 2018 we started conversations with another, similar-sized, property management company. We both agreed – we shared the same values. And, we really liked each other. We decided to join forces. It would give us the scale to reach our goals. To invest more in the service we provide. And it would give us a new perspective.

 

Since 2018 we have made several acquisitions that have added new talent and strengthened our abilities. We are one team focused every day on being the absolute best in the property management business.

Growth

Over a period of 18 months, we acquired six property management companies, increasing our overall size by more than 25%. We’re moving quickly, competition is shrinking, and it’s become obvious that only those with depth and the very best in customer service will survive. That’s us!
