Equity Property Management L.L.C. (EPM) was formed in 1996 to manage the properties in which John H. Cox was an investor. Initially the company managed six properties located in Illinois and Wisconsin that had been previously acquired and had been managed by third party managers on behalf of Mr. Cox and his investors. In 1996 EPM was headquartered in offices alongside Mr. Cox's law firm, Cox Oakes & Associates (COA), in Northbrook, IL.

In 1999 a property was purchased in Merrillville, IN that began the systematic investment in real estate in Indiana over the next thirteen years. By 2006 EPM had acquired five additional properties in Indiana, three in Merrillville and one each in Granger and Columbus, IN. In early 2006 the COA offices moved to Schaumburg, IL and EPM relocated to Merrillville, IN.

Expansion continued as third party fee clients sought out EPM for management services. The EPM managed portfolio also continued to increase in size by acquisition on behalf of the John H. Cox led investor group. In 2007 EPM acquired Castleton Manor, a 220-unit property in the Castleton section of Indianapolis, IN. Growth continued with additional acquisitions in Indiana; in Columbus (42 townhomes, March 2008), Merrillville (48 apartments, July 2009), Greenfield (288 apartments, October 2010), Indianapolis (202 apartments, December 2010), Lafayette and Mishawaka (200 and 154 apartments respectively, March 2011) and Indianapolis (60 apartments, March 2012).

Central to EPM's employee culture is a focus on the owner's objectives: growing income, keeping operating expenses at bay and maintaining the real property in a condition where it appreciates in value. These are concepts that are reinforced with every EPM employee. Consistent outreach, constant marketing for new prospects and a focus on the retention of existing residents enables EPM to maintain high economic occupancies at our managed properties. Prudent planning, careful supervision, structured employee training and mentoring a well-trained maintenance staff that can perform many traditionally outsourced functions in-house, enables us to maximize an owner's return on investment.

EPM utilizes Skyline accounting software with integrated Prospect Management and Service Work Order functions. In addition, all our owned and fee-managed properties utilize Blue Moon lease generation software, using lease documents that are both approved and consistently reviewed by the individual state Apartment Associations.

EPM employees are, through their participation in the EPM Management Incentive Plan, virtual owners in every property we manage.
