The Faces of Apartment Living: T.R McKenzie

The Faces of Madison 2020
T.R McKenzie

As Madison residents, the directors of T.R. McKenzie want to see community members become their neighbors.

The family-owned apartment management firm, run by Jessie and Andy Crooks and Alex McKenzie, has been helping residents find housing in Madison for more than 30 years.

As a full-service real estate brokerage firm, construction company and property management firm, T.R. McKenzie is able to help clients every step of the way in finding a home.

The company even has a homebuyer program that allows any qualified resident in its 1,500 rental units the opportunity to terminate a lease if purchasing a home with one of their real estate agents.

Jessie Crooks said they hope residents create a community together. T.R. McKenzie intentionally creates spaces — such as a gym, lounge area and community rooms —- where neighbors can interact. They hold events and fundraisers to deepen the community connection, including a golf outing, which has raised more than $23,000 for the University of Wisconsin–Madison Carbone Cancer Center.

“Even when people live alone, they crave a social environment. And we want our residents to feel like they live at a home, not just a rental property,” Jessie Crooks said.
