Core Living is a full-service property management company. Headquartered in the Twin Cities, we manage over 3,000 units across the Midwest, specializing in multifamily, student housing, senior living, and commercial properties. Our people-first property management philosophy turns buildings into communities and residents into advocates.


Core Living was born in the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota, originally managing 414 units across 10 rural properties. Through hard work and a healthy dose of Midwestern stubbornness, we helped those properties survive the boom-to-bust vagaries of the oil market. That same forward thinking and tireless work ethic has helped us to achieve explosive growth year after year. Today, Core Living is a nimble and dynamic company whose portfolio spans 3,000 units across 5 states in the Upper Midwest — with no plans to slow down any time soon. We are proud to say that our hard work has earned us a spot on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the Most Successful Companies in America.


We offer comprehensive property management services — everything from branding and lease-ups to property financing and reporting. But the core of our services is always the same: the people. Whether we’re negotiating vendor contracts or strategizing a lease-up campaign, our work always revolves around the people who make our communities their home and the team of employees who give 110% every day.
