Who is Apartment Hunters...
From the beginning, our goal has been to provide our clients with a fast, effective way to find their perfect place to live. This underlying philosophy is still central to our corporate mission:
There will be no better way than using Apartment Hunters for an individual to search for and locate their perfect residence at a price they can afford. We will accomplish this by:
- Being experts on the local housing market
- Taking the time to fully understand an individual’s needs
- Providing specific advice tailored to each individual
- Making the search process timely, fast, simple and effective
- Partnering with property owners representing a broad variety of residences
Over the years, the methods used to fulfill our mission have changed as the world around us has changed. When we started, all of our clients were serviced in our local stores and we were considered innovative because we utilized proprietary software that allowed us to show our clients detailed information about the apartment communities we recommended. With the evolution of computers and the Internet, the use of technology to provide information is now commonplace.
Anyone with Internet access can now easily find more information about living choices than they can possibly absorb. So ironically, finding the perfect place to live can be harder, not easier due to these technology developments. For years we have embraced the Internet as a critical tool to deliver information and communicate. At the same time, we are committed to continuing to provide the expertise and local market knowledge that is essential to your decision making process. Our full service, technology-driven solution provides you with BOTH easy access to information and hands-on help from local experts. And better yet, we let you tell us how much help you want. We are here to help you when you want to help, but are respectful of your desire to use our technology to search on your own.
Apartment Hunters opened for operations on February 8, 1988 in a tiny 900 sq. ft. office in Gainesville, Florida. From these small beginnings, the Company has over the years continued to expand its Gainesville operation and currently serves over 10,000 people annually from a 4,000 sq. ft. store.
Based on its success in Gainesville, the Company opened its first location in the Orlando area in January 1993. As the demand for the Company’s services grew, additional stores were opened. Today the Company serves over 20,000 people annually from its three (3) Orlando stores.
With its presence firmly established in Gainesville and Orlando, the Company moved into the Tampa Bay area in 1996. Today the Company serves over 6,000 people annually from the Tampa location.
