Who We Are

We create communities people are proud to call home.

At 2B Residential, we’re experts in turning apartments into more than places people live – these are places people are proud to call home. How do we do it? It starts with knowing people, locations and trends. It’s about understanding expectations – and always being willing to go a step further for our residents.

That’s what we’ve been doing since 2012. As the Residential Services division of Balke Brown Transwestern, we’re one of the most respected and fastest-growing property management companies in the Midwest, with market-leading properties in St. Louis and Southwest Illinois. Our portfolio includes over 4,400 of the region’s most sought-after residential units – with more added every month.
