In 1957, Jona Goldrich & Sol Kest teamed up and formed Goldrich & Kest Inc. to develop their first apartment community.  Shortly after, the successful partnership went on a significant growth trajectory and in 1972, Jona and Sol formed G&K Management Co., Inc. to manage their growing property portfolio. Goldrich & Kest Inc. was a recognized innovator in developing Southern California condominiums in the 1960s. They aggressively developed congregate care facilities for seniors starting in 1965.  By 1968, the company was a pioneer developer in Marina Del Rey where they built one of the first luxury apartment/marina complexes in what was previously considered swampland. In 1970, San Jose Gardens Apartments was unveiled, representing their first foray into the Northern California market. A year later, the company extended its footprint to San Diego with the opening of Genesee Park Apartments. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s boom, Goldrich & Kest Inc. continued adding government-assisted housing to the portfolio, and rapidly became one of California’s largest developers of government-assisted apartments. In the 1980s, the company expanded outside California, entering the for-sale, commercial, retail and industrial markets throughout the United States. As part of its re-branding in July, 2016, the company formally changed its name, to Goldrich Kest. The family business that Jona and Sol founded over half a century ago now manages a diverse portfolio of over 200 properties nationwide. 

Goldrich Kest has been consistently providing and managing homes for California families since 1957. Today, GK’s diversified portfolio has over 120 multifamily communities across the Golden State.
