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.
We are taking steps to improve our hiring practices as part of our commitment to provide a diverse pool of candidates for each position.
We are committed to regularly evaluating our company to encourage inclusion, and create opportunities.
We create both hiring and promotion opportunities for employees traditionally underrepresented in the real estate industry.
Grubb Properties is committed to fair and equitable pay. We do annual compensation reviews to ensure we provide pay equity regardless of gender or ethnicity.
Our seven-member board includes two women, one of whom is a person of color, and one man of color.
Team members are required to complete annual training on diversity and inclusion, Fair Housing, harassment-free work environments, and more.
To improve diversity representation, we’re recruiting talent in evolving ways by increasing recruiting at HBCUs and partnering with internship programs devoted to underrepresented talent.
To evaluate the effectiveness of our hiring practices and employee retention initiatives, we report annually to the board of directors and senior management employee and management statistics that track gender and ethnicity data.
We partner with MWBEs (Minority/Women-Owned Business Enterprises) on investment and development projects throughout the United States.
