New Haven Company Turns 100 This Year
- Mar 04, 2010
New Haven, Conn.–The Wm. M. Hotchkiss Co., based in New Haven, recently celebrated its 100th year in business. Despite numerous recessions, an evolution of the real estate industry, added competition, and six ownership changes, the company has experienced steady growth since its inception 100 years ago. The company currently has more than two million square feet of real estate under management.
The services offered by The Wm. M. Hotchkiss Co. over the past century have evolved along with the real estate industry. In the early years, the company was primarily a New Haven County commercial management company with an insurance division. Recognizing the demands of the changing industry, the company slowly diversified its services and repositioned itself into a full-service, statewide organization specializing in property management, commercial sales, residential sales, and leasing. With the evolution came the closing of the insurance division and the addition of small residential property management, association, and HUD residential management accounts.
