Atlanta–Multifamily real estate firm Lane Co. has announced that it will expand its outreach into the student housing area by establishing a division that will focus solely on operation and management of privately owned, off-campus student apartments.

Lane Management LLC, the firm’s property management arm, has been active in the student housing market for almost 15 years, managing student communities in ten states for a variety of owners, including one of the largest student housing companies in the country.

“We are doing this in recognition of the growing role of student housing,” says Lane Company President Cindy Pfeifer. Before joining Lane Company, Pfeifer was chief operating officer/chief investment officer of Place Properties, one of the nation’s premier off-campus student apartment companies.

Industry veteran Rick Jones will lead the new division. The new group also welcomes two new employees with extensive backgrounds in student housing. Wesley Deese, a regional property manager who is responsible for student communities in North Carolina, Kentucky and Georgia and Michael Mulholland, now property manager for The Bellamy Student Apartments in Louisville.
