Evernest was established in 2008 at the beginning of the housing crisis. Our founder, Matthew Whitaker, was left with 30 investment properties that he intended to sell but was unable to do so when the residential housing market crashed. So he began a search to locate a property manager who shared his management philosophies and ideals. Later on in the year, Matthew launched Evernest and we officially opened for business.
In the last 15 years, Evernest has grown from a team of 3 to a nationwide company with over 400 team members. Evernest is based in Birmingham and operates in 33 real estate markets across the US.
With Evernest you’ll receive in-house maintenance, no fees for cancellation, and a waived lease fee if a resident leaves within the first year. Evernest guarantees a qualified renter for your unit within 21 days, or your first two months of management are free. A 24-hour hotline is available to residents as well.
