Equity Property Management L.L.C. (EPM) was formed in 1996 to manage the properties in which John H. Cox was an investor. Initially the company managed six properties located in Illinois and Wisconsin that had been previously acquired and had been managed by third party managers on behalf of Mr. Cox and his investors. In 1996 EPM was headquartered in offices alongside Mr. Cox's law firm, Cox Oakes & Associates (COA), in Northbrook, IL.

In 1999 a property was purchased in Merrillville, IN that began the systematic investment in real estate in Indiana over the next eighteen years. By 2006 EPM had acquired five additional properties in Indiana, three in Merrillville and one each in Granger and Columbus, IN. In early 2006 the COA offices moved to Schaumburg, IL and the EPM Corporate Operations Center relocated to Merrillville, IN.

Expansion continued as third party fee clients sought out EPM for management services. The EPM managed portfolio also continued to increase in size by acquisition on behalf of the John H. Cox led investor group. In the ten years after 2007 EPM acquired an additional 1,472 apartments in ten communities in Indiana. In 2016 EPM embarked on a rehabilitation and conversion of 190 apartments in three communities collectively renamed "The Edgewood Group Apartments" in Merrillville, IN from market rate to Low Income Housing Tax Credit status. In 2017 EPM acquired two student housing properties known as Station House Apartments and Station House Annex Apartments in Louisville, Kentucky.

Central to EPM's employee culture is a focus on the owner's objectives: growing income, keeping operating expenses at bay and maintaining the real property in a condition where it appreciates in value. These are concepts that are reinforced with every EPM employee. Consistent outreach, constant marketing for new prospects and a focus on the retention of existing residents enables EPM to maintain high economic occupancies at our managed properties. Prudent planning, careful supervision, structured employee training and mentoring a well-trained maintenance staff that can perform many traditionally outsourced functions in-house, enables us to maximize an owner's return on investment.

EPM utilizes OneSite Accounting and Leasing and Rents by RealPage soon to be expanded to incorporate online leasing and lease application and online rent payments as well as online work order request functions. In addition, all our fee managed and our owned properties utilize BlueMoon lease and addendum generation and AVID Exchange invoice processing software.

EPM employees are, through their participation in the EPM Management Incentive Plan, virtual owners in every property we own and manage.
