Humble Beginnings.

Associates long before World War I and before they ever dreamed of becoming business partners, a young Emanuel E. Falk assisted A. Louis Drucker in the Drucker family grocery store after school.

Years later, in a small cinder block building in downtown Newport News where Mr. Drucker ran a successful insurance business, a now grown Emanuel Falk worked in real estate. At Falk’s urging, the two formed a Real Estate-Insurance partnership. That partnership has now grown into one of country’s largest and most respected property management and commercial real estate organizations.

A partnership is born

Each investing $100.00 and one typewriter, Drucker + Falk begin what is now a historical business relationship. Their first hire helped to write insurance policies, keep the books, and served as an assistant. The firm’s growing reputation for proactive stewardship and value enhancement of real estate assets resulted in significant growth. In 1970, David Falk Sr. opened an office in Raleigh, North Carolina to serve as a hub for markets throughout the southeast United States.

The firm steadfastly maintained a successful balance of traditional values and conservative business practices with an ever-expanding property management portfolio. Forward-thinking with an emphasis on people, process and “above and beyond” performance, an “Aim Higher” culture become embedded with Drucker + Falk and remains the hallmark of our company.

The Road Ahead

Now under the leadership of third generation owners and Managing Directors, Wendy Drucker, Kellie J. Falk and David Falk, Jr., the firm continues to thrive. To position the company for a new wave of growth and expansion, in 2005 Guy Buck was appointed CFO, and in 2009, Jim Ledbetter joined the firm as President and COO.

What started in 1938 as a small family business is today among the nation’s largest and most successful property management companies. Why? Because we never lost sight of the family character that embodies this firm, one rooted in integrity, sterling customer service and the delivery of optimal asset value to our clients.
