Welcome to Asset Living

Asset Living was founded in 1986 in Houston, Texas, by my father and his partner. Their purpose was to turnaround troubled assets coming out of the S&L crisis. They prided themselves on doing so in a way that would have a positive impact on the families and the communities they loved.

Right from those very first days, the company was driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, intensive attention to detail, robust financial controls, a bedrock commitment to family, and a willingness to work hard.

Today, the Asset Living family is 6,500 people strong, and every one of us is driven by those same traits.

As we look forward, we are guided by the belief that everyone deserves a place to call home.

On behalf of all of us at Asset Living, welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you.”
