RMR Residential Celebrates 5 Years

Every piece of the puzzle – from loans to equity to strategy – needed to fit perfectly or the Firm risked an early defeat. But five years into the endeavor, RMR Residential, strong as ever, pushed forward.

First Successful Sale of Multifamily and Retail Assets

As RMR Residential’s fourth year was coming to a close, the Firm looked to yield a return on its development, and successfully sold parts of its multifamily and retail portfolio.

Early Stages of RMR Residential Growth

RMR Residential continued to experience steady growth in its second full year.

During this time, the Firm expanded its footprint in the Southeast through North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. In the early days, RMR Residential focused primarily on developing villas, multiple infill residential developments, and a retail shopping center.

Beginning to Develop Residential Communities

RMR Residential dove headfirst into the industry, unwilling to consider failure as an option.

As a start, RMR Residential began developing villas in Highlands, NC, multiple infill residential developments in Atlanta, GA, and residential developments in Greenville, SC. The Firm also developed a retail shopping center in Greenville, SC.

With blind ambition, RMR Residential moved forward confidently to build a large, profitable, organization – buying and selling both multifamily and retail assets in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

The Beginning

The Firm was founded by M. Patrick Carroll in 2004 with initial investments in Georgia and Florida.

At just 24 years old, Patrick Carroll quit his job as a clothing rep with a dream of building a new real estate company from the ground up. Carroll had lived in Atlanta for four years and had grown accustomed to the nuances of growing a business, traveling, and meeting many individuals who would soon help his budding dream become a reality. With a name big enough to match his ambition, RMR Residential was born.
