About CIP Communities

CIP Communities is a family-owned property management and development company headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska. Our deep roots date back to 1938, with the Austin family’s small business that focused on brokerage services, insurance, and management of several single-family homes. In 1965, the Schleich family purchased the company, and created what is now known as CIP Communities.

Today, CIP Communities is one of the largest and most diverse property management and development companies in the Midwest. We primarily focus on land and project development, apartment management, asset management, residential leasing, and commercial leasing.

We proudly manage more than 39 multi-family communities with 7,200 individual apartments in 3 states.

You’ll find our beautiful communities in Lincoln and Omaha in Nebraska; West Des Moines in Iowa; and Minneapolis, Bloomington, Eagan, and Woodbury in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. In addition, we manage over 100,000 square feet of commercial real estate, and a golf course.

Over the years, our communities and teams have been recognized by our residents and numerous industry organizations for excellence in property management and customer service. And we won’t stop there. Our mission has always been, and will continue to be, to provide those we serve with excellent experiences. Learn more about our mission and core values.
