HISTORY

Metropolitan Properties of America was founded in 1980, but our heritage of real estate investment and management expertise goes back over 100 years and three generations. Throughout the company’s history, M|P|A has focused on forging long-term relationships with property owners, investors and financial institutions that are based on trust, integrity and proven performance.

From its first corporate headquarters in Brookline, MA, M|P|A established its first property portfolio with the purchase and redevelopment of Centre Place in Newton, Massachusetts. From there, the company expanded through strategic acquisitions in select markets in Massachusetts, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Illinois. Throughout this period, M|P|A implemented its value-creation strategy across multiple geographic markets of opportunity--a strategy the company still pursues today. In every market M|P|A established a presence, it soon set the standard for cost-efficient, service-oriented property management practices that help assure both resident satisfaction and attractive investment returns.

Today, M|P|A is a cohesive firm with broad national exposure and a reputation for innovation and excellence. While M|P|A continues to expand its portfolio of properties, the company’s guiding principles have remained the same: insistence on quality, reliance on sound investment strategies and a commitment to seeking out opportunities that require the solution of complex real estate problems and maximizes the returns to its investors.
