Commercial Commitment

We aim to provide business owners with peace of mind. Knowing that their property is secure, safe and always maintained allows them to focus solely on growing your business.

Close To Campus

The Winkler Organization owns & manages over 19 multi-family properties within 1 mile of App State's beautiful campus in Boone, NC.

Floor Plans That Deliver

Each plan is designed to maximize property income while exceeding tenant expectations — 91% of our tenants say they are having a ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ experience.

Well Managed, Well Maintained

We developed an exclusive housekeeping service to assist our tenants in keeping our properties in beautiful condition year round rather than a single, deep cleaning during unit turnover.

Innovating A Proven, Analog Process

23 multi-family properties, 1,000 bedrooms, 35 years experience, 1 goal: provide our tenants with a place they feel safe, valued, and proud to call home. Our tenant's experience had never been better, but internally we knew our processes needed to adapt to embrace new efficiencies.

In 2012, The Winkler Organization was entering its third decade of building, development and growth. In the midst of this expansion phase was the ever increasing pressure on the leasing and management teams. Busy 'turnover season' quickly became a year-round process of application submissions, lease signatures and renewals, and unit assignments — all of which were executed through a very manual, 'analog' process.

"If I could give Winkler more than 5 stars, I would! Your team has been great to me and my roommates. No company is more convenient and affordable to rent from while in college!" — Jennifer Fricke, 2 Year Tenant, 5 Star Google Review

Later that same year, we introduced a new website that facilitated our entire leasing process, online. Applications were easier to capture and organize, leases were signed and notarized more quickly, and tenant occupancy reached 100% months earlier than previous years. The management team, lead by Scott Cook, has continued to iterate the entire leasing process in the decade since. The results have been incredible as each facet of property management has undergone operational efficiencies and automations. Most importantly, our tenants have also felt these improvements in each category of their experience.

Winkler Organization has seen 100% occupancy for the last decade as applicant demand and tenant satisfaction have continued to climb.

We're local to Boone for seven generations, we run a family business. After nearly four decades, our commercial commitment remains the same: build the highest quality student housing and provide our commercial tenants with unparalleled service.

Unique Campaigns, Uncommon Results

The Winkler Perks Program offers our tenants exclusive discounts at 15 of Boone, NC’s most exciting restaurants and businesses.

We developed this program after completing door-to-door surveys at our properties. In our 10th year of this program, Winkler tenants frequently cite these discounts as a major contributor to their overall satisfaction while leasing with us. This program also benefits many of our commercial tenants and other highly rated businesses in the area.

An Area & University On The Rise

In the 4 decades since founding our company, we've seen Appalachian State University grow from a small regional school to a nationally recognized academic powerhouse with nearly 21,000 students. Boone has also earned its reputation for being one of the best small towns in the United States.

We started the Winkler Organization in 1983 with a vision to build, manage and maintain high quality apartments in great locations while enriching students’ time spent in Boone, North Carolina. We truly believe Boone is the best place to live, work, study, play, and explore. Click the button below if you're interested in discussing a commercial project with us.
