gkhouses, a property management company, headquartered in Birmingham that specializes in the management of single-family and small multifamily homes, announced Wednesday that they are changing their name to Evernest Property Management. They manage about 300 properties in Chattanooga.
gkhouses Founder and CEO Matthew Whitaker said on the recent change, “The new name allows us to set a vision of who we aspire to be – a solution for all types of property management. Specifically, today, single-family and small multifamily homes across the country. It also allows us to offer more service verticals under the same brand in the future like HOA management or vacation rental management. In the future, Evernest will be a one-stop shop for all home management needs.
“The two words that make up the new name are ‘ever’, meaning consistent and ‘nest’ which warmly describes a home. I think there is no better way to define our property management company; than an organization who is consistently looking out for your home.”
Evernest has grown from a small Birmingham-based property manager into one of the nation’s largest providers of single-family and multifamily property management services. They currently have offices in Atlanta, Birmingham, Boulder, Chattanooga, Denver, Fort Collins, Jackson (Ms.), Little Rock, and Nashville.
gkhouses/Evernest manages about 3,000 homes with its almost 100 team members and has been on the Inc5000 list four out of the last five years.
Evernest plans to use the month of November to convert all its branding, including its website.
“It’s a tall task to change your name,” added Mr. Whitaker, “Especially one you’ve been working to place as the ‘top of mind’ in the property management space for the last 12 years. But this new name is an important part of our story and the timing was right to get it done!”
