As a third-generation business, we believe that home is where the heart is. At Ackermann Group, we invest in, develop, and manage multi-family real estate. We believe in connecting people for the common good and creating a unique place to live and call home.
The Ackermann Group has a deep family history and rich legacy with 85 years of experience. As a third-generation owner, Dobbs Ackermann has led the Ackermann Group as an influential property management and development leader since 1997. Dobbs focused the business on one primary goal: to serve the community positively.
Today, multi-family real estate investment and property management comprise the majority of the company’s business, with a focus on communities in dependable markets. Our corporate headquarters is located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and we have invested in assets in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and South Carolina.
At Ackermann Group, the business of building communities comes down to creating neighborhoods where families flourish, and businesses thrive. We care deeply about the communities we create and the neighborhoods where we live and work.

Ackermann Group’s investment strategy is founded on patient investing in great locations and is focused on consistent cash returns. We have a strong investment track record, transacting on $1 billion of total value, we have achieved a 21% gross IRR across 9 exits.
The time for investing in multi-family properties is now. Our country’s housing shortage has reached 3.8 million units, and demand for housing is significantly greater than the supply of homes and will be for the next decade or more. Rising home prices are pushing homeownership further out of reach for the majority of Americans. Since 2001, homeownership has been down 5%, and apartment demand is up 33%. Ackermann Group has proved time and time again that they can find good investments in any market cycle.
Investing with Ackermann Group means investing in a sustainable opportunity. Our investment strategy is predicated on patient investing and focused on consistent cash returns.
At Ackermann Group, every development is personal. We take care to preserve and enhance the unique qualities of each community to create a cohesive, purposeful development where people want to live and work, and which will benefit the community.
We believe in meeting people where they are. We manage multi-family communities ranging in size, style, price point, and amenities.
In commercial property management, a building’s reputation is equally as important as its balance sheet. We deliver commercial real estate that meets the needs of our tenants, maintains the environment of our developments, and enhances the communities we serve.
We would love to hear from you, whether you are a current resident, looking for an apartment, or interested in working for us.
