 Home    Our Team


Kinloch Partners, LLC is a leader within the Build to Rent, Single Family housing markets. We are focused exclusively within the greater southeast United States where our industry experience dates back to houses completed and leased nearly nine years ago in Nashville, Tennessee that continue to be 100% leased today. We are aggressively growing our business and have been recognized as a leader in the single-family rental industry within multiple publications including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and several other publications.

We are currently building brand new four and five-bedroom houses in the greater Atlanta, Nashville, Greenville, and Raleigh areas and have the capacity to offer 150-200 homes per year. We continue to acquire high value, developed residential real estate in select counties suitable for the implementation of our Build-to-Rent model.

In addition to managing our in-house portfolio, we are engaged with private equity funds, hedge funds, and REIT’s that have an interest in buying fully stabilized portfolios of new homes. Our service is different from our competitors in that we offer a turnkey program with a 2/10 warranty, a new tenant that has passed a rigorous credit and criminal background check, and a 12-month lease complete with security deposits. We have averaged a 97.5% occupancy and low turnover rates on our houses which come complete with granite countertops, fireplace, and 2 car garages with door opener and mini blinds.

Kinloch Partners, LLC is headquartered in Kennesaw, Georgia.
