About Us

Company History

The Van Metre Companies believe the strength of a community is determined by the people who call it home. So since our founding by the late A.G. Van Metre Sr. more than 60 years ago, we have been focused on our own backyard, building new homes, offices, apartments and shopping centers. With an unwavering commitment to our customers and a longstanding reputation for rigorous standards, we have created a portfolio of companies that connect and combine to support each other’s success – all to enrich our local community and the lives of those who live here.

Property Management

For over 60 Years, Van Metre has been building and managing some of the trendiest addresses in the most sought after locations. Van Metre Management is fully committed to the complete satisfaction of our clients and residents alike. Professional management makes the difference in your community experience. Van Metre is the leader in providing responsive management, superior maintenance, and an uncompromised commitment to quality of living. We take pride in our communities, and with our friendly, helpful staff, we make living easy.

Executive Team

Guided by personal commitments to quality, honesty and integrity, the company continues to grow and build on its success.
