Our Story

Built to be Home

With more than 75 years in history of investing in our team members, residents and the communities we serve, the Glick Company continues to build values for people and places.

Sam and David
Sam Miller 2023 Glick Cares Reward Recipient and David Barrett, President & CEO

As one of the largest privately held real estate ownership, development, and management firms in the U.S., Glick has more than 21,000 units in 13 states. A continued commitment to building thriving communities, reinvesting in our properties and providing industry-leading customer service will continue to drive Glick to success.

Since David Barrett took over as President and CEO in 2007, Glick has remained true to its founding mission and core values. Under David’s leadership, the company has doubled down on its commitment to world-class customer service and corporate social responsibility across the company.

Since 2007, the company has expanded into three new states: Missouri, North Carolina and Wisconsin; participated in the development of six properties; completed tax credit rehabilitation of six properties, including more than 1,000 units; and completed rehabilitation of 20 additional properties, including more than 4,000 units. Perhaps of greatest pride, the Glick Housing Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity, has grown to include more than 7,200 units and continues to grow each year.

Our vision of customer service is to enhance every customer interaction through a set of key pillars. The pillars include 1) making a connection, 2) recognizing that service always matters, and 3) leaving a legacy. Team members at Glick are trained in how to offer exemplary customer service, including a simple, but specific and thorough list of things to “always” or “never” do.

"Our team members are the best in the industry. They truly care for our residents and continue to be the key to our success as a company." 
- David Barrett 


Our Business is Family

The 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.
