The Lynd Company manages approximately 35,000 multifamily units across 14 states. Founded in 1980 by Michael J. Lynd Sr., who currently serves as President of The Lynd Company, the company will be celebrating 30 years in business in 2010. The Company was formed originally as an apartment management company for the purposes of managing syndicated multifamily investments. Lynd Residential Properties was founded as the multifamily investment affiliate in 2003 by Michael J. Lynd Jr. and Adam David Lynd, sons of the founder, along with partner Samuel Kasparek. To date, the three partners have acquired (through Lynd Residential Properties) and/or developed (through Lynd Development Partners) approximately $1 billion in multifamily properties. In 2009, the company bought a 50% stake in Easton Lynd Management, a commercial property management firm based in Miami, to continue to diversify into the management of commercial facilities. In the same year, Lynd Commercial Properties was formed to focus on the acquisition of office and industrial properties.
