WPM currently manages over 70 apartment communities with 17,000 units across five western states – California, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and Washington. Our properties range in size from 68 units to over 600 units encompassing Class “A” through Class “B” apartment communities. In addition to operating conventional market-rate communities, WPM has extensive experience in managing tax-exempt bond and affordable housing assets.
