Salt Lake City-based Cowboy Properties, Inc. has been managing apartment and condominium communities for decades now, attributing its success to its resident-centric take on business.

“It all starts with happy residents. As simplistic as this principle may seem, at Cowboy Properties we’ve made happy residents our highest priority,” the company boasts. Cowboy Properties defines resident’s happiness as peace of mind, achieved through “responding quickly, and following through completely, to service requests,” as well as “respecting the trust that has been placed in us when a resident chooses one of our communities as home.”

Cowboy Properties currently manages 20 apartment communities of around 3,000 units throughout the West, in Utah, Nebraska and Colorado. Utah is the focal point of Cowboy Properties’ activities, managing 16 completed communities in large urban hubs such as Salt Lake City and Park City as well as in smaller urban areas such as Sandy or Draper. Cowboy Properties manages the communities of affiliate Cowboy Partners, one of the top multi-family and mixed-use developers in the West. Cowboy Partners traces its organizational roots back to the 1950s. Projects developed by Cowboy Partners and managed by Cowboy Properties include Tregaron Senior in Bellevue, Nevada, Woodlands in Ft. Collins, Colorado, Liberty Peak in Park City, Utah and Liberty CityWalk in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Cowboy Properties believes not only in a resident-centric business model, but also in giving back to the community. The company’s Cowboy Pledge initiative aims to connect residents looking to get involved and share their resources to give back to the community. The causes championed by the Cowboy Pledge are as varied as are collecting food bank donations, planting trees in local parks, assembling and donating backpacks with school supplies and helping redecorating patient rooms at the Ronald McDonald House. Residents can sign up for events by a simple phone call or email and participate in successful events such as the 2014 Back to School Backpack Drive, through which 110 backpacks or book bags were filled Cowboy Properties’ volunteer residents. The backpacks were distributed in five Salt Lake City area schools.

With ever-expanding holdings, Cowboy Properties and Cowboy Partners will soon welcome another addition to their growing portfolios with the winter 2014 opening of the $29 million Liberty Village Apartments.

The five-story community features 136 market rate apartments and 35 affordable units renting at 50% or below the area median income.
