The Accend Companies, 150 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 2800 Chicago, Illinois 60601 - (312) 348-5200

Our Story

We launched Accend because (1) the residents of military communities have special leasing requirements that are unmet by traditional housing providers, and (2) multifamily assets in military communities are a great investment choice still relatively unknown to real estate investors looking for strong and stable returns and greater portfolio diversification. Accend is well positioned to serve residents looking for better housing choices and investors looking for a new perspective on multifamily real estate investing.


Our specialty is providing quality housing choices to tenants who actively serve in the armed forces, their families, military contractors, and civilians who support the military mission in communities adjacent to strategic military installations throughout the United States.

Military installations have historically been stable economic engines in the regions they serve.  We believe they will continue to be a source of economic vitality for the foreseeable future. Investors looking for dependable returns and attractive growth should look to multifamily investment opportunities in select military markets.  Accend has the experience and expertise to identify the markets that are well suited for this type of investment.

Accend’s business model is sustainable because military communities are characterized by continual mobility of large segments of the population. The frequent transition of residents and the convenience of Accend’s leasing products and services go hand in hand.

The tenants we target desire a broader range of rental products and services than are currently available to them from traditional sources. Our tenants value quality, flexibility, and convenience at an affordable price. Our investors will benefit from partnering with us because we can deliver more of what these consumers value which in turn will result in greater value of our portfolio.


Accend invests from the perspective that our portfolio should provide a strong return at any stage of investment – whether near, intermediate, or long term. We acquire fundamentally sound assets in markets where we are confident of sustained tenant demand.

We are skilled at satisfying the unique needs of our target tenant base. We design and provide value-added rental products and services that will satisfy their special requirements.

Accend plans to be a trusted source for off-post housing in military communities for years to come. The men and women who serve our nation have earned the best we can offer.
