OUR VISION

Where it began and where we are going

Grubb Properties was founded with the recognition that being compassionate is good business. The company began as a homebuilder with the goal of providing homes to families, particularly Black families, that had been traditionally “redlined” from homeownership through banks practicing a form of loan discrimination. Our founder Robert Grubb provided home financing to these families at no mark-up to the rates at which he could borrow from banks. The company built approximately 400 homes for families who otherwise would not have benefited from the economic power of homeownership.

Today, we focus on addressing the housing affordability crisis by providing essential housing through our Link Apartments brand, which targets those making 60-140% of area median income.
