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.
In 2017, we will open new apartment communities in West Des Moines, Iowa, and Bloomington and Woodbury
in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.
Though our company has continued to evolve throughout the years, we remain firmly rooted in our
dedication to integrity and strong customer service.
