For over a thousand years, tulips have been treasured for their rare beauty. Now, thousands of tulips herald spring each year at Post Apartment Homes. More than a trademark, the tulip is a symbol to our residents and our associates that true beauty always captivates and true quality always shows.

Post History

Founded in 1971, Post Properties set out to fundamentally change apartment living. The company began by developing and managing garden-style apartments primarily located in beautiful suburban areas of Atlanta, and by the end of the 1970s, the Post® brand had become synonymous with a unique high-quality apartment living experience.

In the late 1980s, Post expanded its focus to include high-density apartment properties in urban areas experiencing a resurgence of in-town residential neighborhoods. Expansion continued into the 1990s as Post began developing “mixed-use” communities — including apartments, retail stores, restaurants and in some communities, office space.

Post entered a new growth phase in 1993 when it became a public company. Its initial public offering (IPO) was priced at $25.50 per share. In 1997, Post acquired Columbus Realty Trust. The $600 million company based in Dallas, expanded Post's holdings into some great intown, mixed-use neighborhoods in Texas.

Today, led by President and CEO David P. Stockert, Post Properties is one of the largest developers and operators of upscale multifamily communities in the United States with ownership of more than 22,000 apartment units in 58 communities. The company has operations in nine markets and employs more than 600 people.

In keeping with Post Properties’ history, the Post® brand continues to stand for well-thought-out apartments in vibrant communities, with an emphasis on high-touch service and beautiful surroundings.
