Roy Demmon

We are a family owned and operated business that was started in 1960 by Roy Demmon. He focused on office and industrial commercial real estate, with the belief that reinvesting in our properties was the best way to build long-term value. In the 1980s, Roy partnered with his sons Terry and Charlie Demmon and son-in-law Tom Walsh, at which point Demmon Partners became a true family business. In the 1990s, we shifted our investment strategy to the Sacramento area with our first apartment community, Lake Pointe, that is still in our portfolio today. 

In the 2010s, Roy’s grandchildren joined the company, ushering in the third generation of family involvement and carrying out his vision for the long-term future of the business. We remain committed to the belief that long-term ownership and reinvestment in our communities creates the unrivaled experience that our Residents expect and our Team members value. At Demmon Partners, our entire Team is committed to the continuous improvement of services and professional management of our communities.
