Company Updates

  • Congratulations to AMLI Residential's very own Kevin Aguilar. He was awarded the Maintenance Supervisor of the year award at the 2018 Seattle Emerald Awards. Congrats to Kevin and all of the AMLI nominees.

  • Take a look at AMLI Arc, our brand new 41 story apartment tower in Seattle. We're also looking for maintenance employees so if you're interested apply online.

    AMLI Arc apartment tower completes construction

    Construction is complete on AMLI Arc, a 393-unit apartment tower at 1800 Boren Avenue,. The 41-story tower, designed by ZGF Architects, is similar to many apartment buildings that cater to the north downtown and South Lake Union tech core, with an emphasis on social interaction and common areas-although clearly it's taller than many of them.

AMLI is committed to customer service and providing its residents a worry-free, high-value living experience. AMLI® is a brand name representing high quality, exceptional service and superior value.

With over 850 team members working onsite at our apartment communities and in corporate offices at our Chicago headquarters, as well as in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Denver, Seattle, Southern California and South Florida, AMLI is a great place to work and build a career.

Our History

AMLI was founded in 1980 as a private real estate development, management and investment company. In 1994, AMLI went public as a NYSE publicly traded real estate investment trust. In February 2006, AMLI became a private company again through a $2.1 billion transaction with the PRIME Property Fund, a core commingled institutional fund managed by Morgan Stanley.

AMLI has made a commitment to protecting the environment through sustainable development and operations to conserve natural resources and create healthier places to live and work. Sustainable or "green" developments use land more responsibly, offer improved indoor air quality, consume less energy and water, and incorporate renewable or recycled materials.

AMLI has committed to building new developments to meet the standards of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) green building program.  AMLI is proud that, as of December 1, 29 of its communities across the country are LEED certified. And 17 AMLI communities have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR® certification, which signifies that these communities perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

Additionally, as of March 1, 2017, 28 AMLI communities proudly offer smoke-free living. AMLI's Breatheasy® program prohibits smoking by residents and guests inside apartment homes and throughout the community, creating a healthy and clean living environment for our residents. People appreciate the opportunity that AMLI is giving apartment residents to live completely smoke-free.


AMLI focuses on our employees’ personal and professional development. Our team members connect with each other and their career goals through our training and education programs.

    I worked at AMLI Residential full-time (More than a year)


    - Management listens to employees (even upper-management, regional, etc).
    - Amazing "AMLI fAMLI" culture which I thought was really cheesy at first, but then realized how important that is for a strong company to have. There are 70+ AMLIs in the country and you can call any of them at any time if you need something.
    - Lots of opportunities for growth, being promoted, etc.
    - Very thorough training from the start. They don't toss you into the weeds and watch you struggle. Regional manager visits often and you also fly to Dallas (depending on your region) for training as well.
    - You are recognized if you propose an idea and it's implemented
    - Even if you quit on good terms, they allow you to come back and keep all your numbers at the numbers/sales of when you left. They call it the boomerang club and make it very easy for you to join them again.
    - It's a very strong company because the locations of these apartments is prime, so you can take pride in selling a premium product.


    I spent a week trying to think of some so I could complete this post....there aren't any.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly have no advice. The management was awesome. Was able to meet the CEO on several occasions. How many companies offer that opportunity?

    Leasing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at AMLI Residential (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.


    The process started off with a basic phone screen then an invitation to come in to the AMLI River North location. The questions were very straight forward and allowed me time to flaunt my skills and qualifications. Fast forward to's been one month since I've heard back from anyone at AMLI (specifically Megan Soto). I flew 2,000 miles cross country for this interview. The LEAST you could do is notify me that I didn't move on in the interview process instead of leaving me waiting A MONTH to hear back. I respected you as a company but that respect is gone now after this lengthy interview process.
