“The tremendous growth Fath Properties has experienced in the decades since its founding is the kind we all love to celebrate best – a growth that comes from sheer verve and hard work,” said Jocile Ehrlich, President and CEO of BBB Cincinnati. “For 25 years, BBB has had the pleasure of seeing that growth up close, and we’re proud to acknowledge it today.”

It was some 40 years ago that Harry Fath, a young lawyer, bought a 6-unit apartment building and “worked very hard at finding out what his customers wanted and what type of customers he wanted.” He soon discovered that good residents simply wanted “a clean, quiet, and well-maintained place to live,” and that he was good at providing it.

Good, indeed – today, Fath Properties is a full-service, professional real estate company specializing in “owning, rehabilitating, and managing quality apartment communities” and boasting a portfolio of 30 such communities and nearly 8,000 apartment homes in several states. Bob Winkler, Cincinnati HR Director, glows as he describes the current Fath Properties landscape; his words punctuated only by the occasional glare of light bouncing off of one of the numerous awards that rest on the table behind him.

“Our philosophy has been to provide communities and homes where you love the place you live,” Fath Properties leadership explains, acknowledging that such an environment is born of a “dedicated management team, a commitment to never lowering our standards, and a focus only to provide quality service to quality residents.”
