How It Began
Evernest started at the beginning of the 2008 economic crisis by default. When the bottom fell out of the residential housing market, our founder, Matthew Whitaker, was left holding 30 rental houses that he wanted to sell, but couldn’t. So he set out to find a property manager with similar beliefs and management preferences as to his own. Later that year, Matthew started Evernest and opened our doors for business.
Since 2008, our team has continued growing from 3 to more than 400+ team members dedicated to providing owners with the best property management experience.
Our vision is to be a top property management firm where ethical professionals collaborate to exceed the standards of our clients. To be a leader of excellence in our community, surpassing the expectations of every owner, vendor, and resident to the best of our ability.
Secret to Our Success
What’s the secret to our success? We attribute it to an incredible team and a thriving company culture. Our company culture influences how we do business with our owners and residents. It’s also the basis for which we hire new employees. Having competent job qualifications is necessary, but embracing the Evernest core values is what matters first.
As a respected Property Management Company in our community, our mission is to successfully manage your property at the next level of professionalism with our broad knowledge, vast experience and dedication to serving you well, inspiring trust, through honesty, integrity and transparency.
The Evernest reputation for excellence began to spread. Since that time, we have grown to manage over 16,000 properties throughout the south and midwest.
Do the Right Thing
We will always be honest with each other, our residents, and our owners. We operate a truth-based property management company with high levels of accountability, regardless of how it affects us individually or as a company.
Our team of professionals commits themselves to daily disciplines both inside and outside the office. The positive habits we create in life impact our company and our clients. It’s not an easy business, and there’s no substitute for disciplined habits if you want to remain successful.
Own the Outcome
We will continuously strive for the best way to serve our Owners by frequently updating our processes, pushing ourselves never to be stagnant and never accepting of the status quo. We are determined to revolutionize this industry.
Without sacrificing our core beliefs, we will always put the Team (our Owners, our Residents, and each other) first. Individually, we can only achieve so much; as a team, everyone can meet, and exceed their goals.
Embrace the Grind
Beginning with just 30 houses to now almost 16,000, it has taken an extreme amount of hustle and perseverance to grow Evernest. We are committed to whatever it takes to lease your home to a well-qualified resident and manage the day in and day out processes that keep you happy.
