Alliance, like its namesake, is dedicated to forming strategic alliances with each of its associates, partners and clients. Alliance Residential Company is a unique apartment service provider with strategic market penetration in 18 regions. It offers considerable resources, and is exclusively committed to the Third Party management business. Alliance is one of the largest Third Party management companies in the Western United States, with a $3.0 billion portfolio spanning 10 states and 18 metropolitan markets. Alliance was established concurrent with the merger of Trammell Crow Residential - West and BRE Properties Inc., a publicly traded Real Estate Investment Trust in 1997. Alliance was formed to provide superior residential management services exclusively to Third Party owners. Alliance was subsequently privatized by the award winning team of veteran real estate executives, formerly the Trammell Crow Residential - West management team. Alliance has offices in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Dallas, Austin, Houston and Atlanta. Having regional offices in most of the cities where we manage assets, allows Alliance professionals the ability to be responsive to local market needs and changes, and provides upper management support and oversight. Our local presence, combined with the ability to make important and timely strategic decisions, enable Alliance associates to provide superior residential management services. Presently under management are over 100 apartment communities, containing approximately 25,000 units.

The professionals of Alliance have successfully transitioned over 200 communities and leased up over 60 new apartment developments over the past decade with the current and predecessor company. Several of the transition assignments included property repositioning of older communities in "B" and "C" markets. All of the repositioning included capital renovation work.

The development professionals have completed over 30,000 units in apartment homes throughout the Western United States. The designs and amenities have varied depending on local market characteristics and have ranged from 12 dwelling units per acre to 100 units per acre.
