Timberland Partners is a real estate investment, management and development firm committed to providing exceptional service to our residents, opportunities to our team members, and long-term relationships with our investors.

Welcome to Timberland Partners

From a modest 46-unit apartment community in Mounds View, Minnesota, we drew upon our vision and mission to create an organization that now encompasses more than 20,000 apartments in 18 states. Our ongoing growth and success are testament to the skill and integrity of our mission-driven team.

“We want to be an organization that continues to grow. Growth doesn’t just happen because we want it to. Growth happens because we qualify for it by being a good organization to work for, providing outstanding living experiences for our residents and delivering good returns to our investment partners.”
