In 1966, Frank Resnek and Gerald Rosen, elementary school friends who were both practicing attorneys in New England, established Churchill Forge Properties. The company’s first purchase was a block of retail stores in Canton, Massachusetts as a means to generate a secondary source of income. After having some modest success with this initial investment, Frank and Gerry started seeking out additional investment opportunities, with Frank eventually leaving the legal profession to focus solely on multi-family property acquisition and management.
Initially, the company was focused on acquiring “value add”, garden style apartment communities in Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. However, in 1998, Churchill Forge expanded beyond its New England roots, and started to acquire properties in Austin and San Antonio, Texas. This soon expanded to Charlotte, North Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, and eventually to Ft. Myers, Florida. Churchill Forge’s two most recent purchases were in Texas – 1800 Broadway, in downtown San Antonio, and Southpark Crossing, in South Central Austin.
Today, Churchill Forge Properties owns and operates 43 properties with 9,672 units across six states, and employs more than 250 people. The company is headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts. Frank Resnek remains at the helm of the company as CEO and President.
