CIP Apartments and Town Homes Corporate Office and Website

CIP’s history dates back to 1938, when the Austin family started a small business that focused on brokerage services, insurance and managing a number of single-family homes.

In 1965, the Schleich family purchased the company, known at that time as Austin Realty. Since then, the company has continued to grow and expand into what is now known as CIP.

Today, CIP is one of the largest and most diverse property management and development companies in the Midwest. Our services focus on project development, asset management, residential leasing and commercial leasing.

We manage more than 4,800 apartments in Lincoln, Omaha and Alliance, Nebraska, as well as Ames, Iowa. We’ve been recognized by our residents and industry organizations for excellence in property management and customer service.

And we continue to grow.

In 2017, we will open new apartment communities in West Des Moines, Iowa, and Bloomington and Woodbury
in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.


We continue to manage other properties, as well, including about 250,000 square feet of commercial real estate, that includes business offices, restaurants, retail stores and warehouse space and hospitality properties that include hotels and a golf course.

Though our company has continued to evolve throughout the years, we remain firmly rooted in our
dedication to integrity and strong customer service.

Our mission has been, and will continue to be,
to provide those we serve with exceptional experiences.
