Communities is the trade name of Dial Equities, Inc. The firm was
formed in 1992 when founder Jack Haley returned to Omaha after
decades of distinguished service in the United States Air
Under Jack’s leadership and personal efforts, the property
management and renovation company grew to well over $60 million in
multi-family holdings operating more than 2,000 units by 1998.
Pleased with his initial success, Jack envisioned more for the
company; he wanted to grow the firm’s real estate investment to $1
billion and 20,000 units.
To do this, he formed a strong leadership team with expertise in
the industry’s core disciplines: investment debt and equity, legal
and transactional, strategic thinking and best practice
Continuing strategic and technological growth at DEI Communities
requires the continuous improvement and entrepreneurial spirit
spoken of in our Core Values.
DEI was among the first privately-held, mid-size operators to adopt
online payments for residents, sophisticated revenue management
pricing models and paperless electronic invoicing and payment
Today, we strive to anticipate industry innovation and work
diligently to explore and adopt the best available tools to create
both cash flow and property value.
DEI Communities currently manages over 11,000 units in more than 40
properties across the United States valued in excess of $750
