Kansas City-based Block Real Estate Services recently added a new addition to its business division, the Block Multifamily Group (BMG).

BMG will provide full service multi-family management in a broad geographic area to a wide range of assets, from market rate to affordable housing and HUD programs throughout the Midwest and Southwest.

“For a number of years our institutional and private equity clients have asked us to consider moving into the multi-family property management business," said Kenneth Block, managing principal of Block Real Estate Services and chairman of BMG. "As we explored opportunities in this sector, our investigations led us to Bristol Properties and Bill Larson. We are very excited to bring Bill and his team’s experience to our company and now be able to provide quality multi-family management capabilities to our clientele."

Bill Larson has been active in the management of multi-family housing for more than 35 years. Starting as an on-site community manager, Larson has experienced the apartment management field from the ground up.  As president of BMG, Larson will focus on strategic oversight and business development.

“Having come up through the ranks, I understand what service delivery means at all levels.  My experience in managing conventional, tax credit and various HUD-related multi-family properties on a national basis, will allow Block Multifamily Group to meet the demands in today's multi-family environment while exceeding our customers’ expectations."
