About Hively

Hively specializes in securing high property values and maintaining cash flow through rigorous screening, high tenant retention, efficient asset management, and effective preventative maintenance.

Hively's Beginning

Hively is the property management arm of The Alexander Company – a second-generation, Madison, Wisconsin-based real estate development firm with 35+ years of experience in creating and managing multi-family communities throughout the nation.

In the beginning, The Alexander Company outsourced their property management needs to third parties but was never quite pleased with the results. “We could do this better,” they thought. And so they did.

The Alexander Company tested management, maintenance, and marketing strategies across their own portfolio to develop a turnkey approach to comprehensive property management services. As their portfolio thrived they continued their time-tested property management services, and eventually started offering the same to select partners. In 2020 the firm launched Hively and began offering their comprehensive property management services to other owners and investors.

Today Hively actively manages over 1,500 residential apartment units across seven states and a variety of building types, from garden-style to high-rise, from elevated to income-based, and from lease-up to preventative maintenance.

The Hively Method

The Hively name was inspired by the energy with which a beehive approaches a common goal of creating a thriving, sustainable community. Our comprehensive property management team works tirelessly to dovetail their unique expertise and extensive backgrounds to create multi-family communities that residents are happy to call home, resulting in a ripple effect of benefits for owners.
