Established, but always evolving. Proven, but always innovating. Unafraid to explore uncharted territory — to reset standards, break new ground or pioneer industry firsts. This tireless energy and entrepreneurial spirit is what drives The Engel Burman Group, and has for over 50 years. Building on a solid foundation that includes some of the area’s most known and respected development brands — notably, The Bristal Assisted Living — The Engel Burman Group continues to extend its reach, expanding even further on a national scale.
Whether it’s developing, building and managing next-generation housing for first-time homebuyers, creating exceptional yet affordable living solutions for independent active adults, or trailblazing ongoing innovation in senior care and senior living, The Engel Burman Group continues to anticipate, adapt and advance — challenging, rethinking and redefining what’s possible.
The management team at The Engel Burman Group is comprised of highly seasoned and multi-faceted real estate professionals who bring with them decades of depth and experience from various market sectors. The organization is also fueled by a vision and passion from its next generation of leaders. This potent combination proves a formidable formula, where insight and imagination work hand-in-hand to keep The Engel Burman Group at the leading edge of real estate development and management.
The history of The Engel Burman Group is as rich and unique as its business. Years before forming their partnership, the principals of The Engel Burman Group first met while competing for the same property. They connected and perceived something special in one another. It led them to wonder: Why not team up instead of competing? It turned out to be a marvelous decision, one that foreshadowed the kind of bold and open-minded thinking that today typifies The Engel Burman Group.
As a privately owned business with origins proudly rooted on Long Island, The Engel Burman Group owns, develops and manages prime properties up and down the Eastern Seaboard — and continues to expand throughout the country. The advantage of working with The Engel Burman Group is its ability to carry projects from concept to fruition — to get them zoned, approved, entitled, planned, constructed, and managed. In the process, outstanding living and working opportunities are created in the neighborhoods their residents and tenants call home. This is what makes their work so vital; the building of a legacy.
The company’s commitment to forward-thinking property development as well as the resetting of established norms has inspired many industry firsts over the years. These are the kinds of unique accomplishments The Engel Burman Group is known to achieve, both regionally and nationally, such as:
