About Us


Ridgeline Management Company has been a provider of senior housing services since 2002. During this time, many of our investors have profited from our acquisitions and development projects.  It is my desire to bring investment opportunities to a larger audience.  To accomplish this, a new division has been created.  Ridgeline Properties will now be responsible for growth and investment strategy while Ridgeline Management Company will continue to focus on excellence in all aspects of operations (www.ridgelinemc.com).
