About Us


From Local to National

Berkshire was founded in 1966 by George and Douglas Krupp, two brothers who wanted to change the way residents experienced apartment living. As the company grew, they realized the importance of hiring the right talent and investing in those individuals to operate the company. To learn from their experiences. To listen to the needs to both residents and associates to build a great company.

Over the years, by listening and attending to the need of residents and improving our business model in the process, the company grew and evolved, touching lives in markets across the country. Berkshire started small, then grew substantially over the next 50 years.
