Our History

Standard is a private real estate investment firm founded in 1961. At the time of Standard’s founding, Samuel K. Freshman was managing partner at the Beverly Hills law firm of Freshman, Marantz, Orlanski, Cooper & Klein, which was subsequently acquired by Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham LLP.

Standard Management Company was originally involved in the management and leasing of approximately one million square feet of office properties in the Los Angeles area. In the 1970s and 1980s, Standard went on to acquire in excess of 6,000 multifamily units, operating large projects in Burbank, Santa Maria, Ontario and Sacramento, California; New Orleans, Louisiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Atlanta, Georgia; Columbus, Ohio; Houston and Dallas, Texas; and Lawton, Oklahoma. In addition, Standard acquired and managed industrial properties throughout the U.S.

For the past ten years, Standard has acquired multifamily properties, shopping centers, and land development projects. Standard is actively seeking acquisition opportunities in multifamily and retail, as well as land investments in the Western U.S. Third party management has included all major asset classes, including recent assignments in the multi-family, office and industrial.

Our Mission

Today, Standard’s mission remains the same as it has been since 1961—to deliver superior returns for real estate investors. We do this through active management of our existing portfolio; acquisition of existing income property and origination of short term loans secured by real estate in California and neighboring states.
