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 opened four new apartment communities in Nebraska and Minnesota while expanding others. In 2018, we opened three new communities in Iowa, Nebraska and Minnesota. In 2019 and 2020, we opened a community in Nebraska and a community in Minnesota. Additionally, in 2021, we opened two new communities in Nebraska and Minnesota.
Though our company has continued to evolve throughout the years, we remain firmly rooted in our
dedication to integrity and strong customer service.
