The Integrated Real Estate Group Story

Building Exceptional Communities

Integrated Real Estate Group was founded in 2003 by builder and developer Rick Simmons, who had previously operated a successful luxury homebuilding company. At Integrated Real Estate Group, Simmons’ initial focus was on developing and operating Affordable and market rate multifamily housing, with an emphasis on outstanding quality and design. By vertically integrating property management services along with the planning, development and construction functions, Integrated Real Estate Group was established as an all-inclusive company that could more efficiently and effectively control projects of any size from conception through completion, and then into the ongoing operation phase. This holistic approach provides cost and time savings to clients, and improves overall community quality and the provision of services to residents.

Continued Expansion

In 2011, Simmons formed Integrated Real Estate Group’s fourth division: Integrated Senior Lifestyles. This division operates Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Extended Care communities developed and constructed by Integrated Real Estate Group. These purpose-built communities range from affordable housing for low-income seniors, to high-end, luxury senior living developments.

The team at Integrated Real Estate Group and Integrated Senior Lifestyles have a personal commitment to enriching the lives of seniors that flows from the very top. The genesis of this division came from Simmons’ inability to find a senior living community for his own mother that could provide the care and lifestyle she needed. This inspired Integrated Senior Lifestyles’ innovative business model, which offers an a la carte system to personalize lifestyle and health care options for today’s senior.
