About PLK Communities

Get to Know Us

Founded by Peter Klekamp in 2001, PLK Communities started out as a real estate management company with a focus on multifamily and industrial properties. Throughout the years, PLK evolved into the ownership and management of retail, office, and self-storage facilities in the Eastern United States. With the acquisition, redevelopment, and management of multifamily properties, our focus is centered on exceptional service and distinctive living experiences for our residents.

Today, PLK has over 175 full-time associates and manages over 5,500 apartment homes across Ohio and Kentucky. PLK Communities has grown into the largest owner of multifamily units in the Cincinnati Metropolitan Statistical Area while maximizing our value across a diverse portfolio of properties.

Reviews From Our PLK Family

"I've been with the company for just under a year and have excelled with the guidance of great teammates, through PLK's mission and vision of "LIVE Proud," which is the foundation of our culture. In that time, I have gotten to participate in three amazing philanthropy events that were designed to directly help the youth within our Tri-State community. Working at PLK allows me to be impactful in everything I do. I am excited to see what our future brings!"

Meeka Jones | Property Manager

"I just have to tell you that I have worked for a lot of different companies in my lifetime, and I’ve never worked for such a wonderful company as PLK Communities. Your love, your compassion, and your generosity are unequivocally above and beyond all of my expectations, I am so proud to work for PLK Communities. This is the best company and the best job I’ve ever had and to me my job is so much fun. I just love fixing things!"
