Hello Silver River Residents, We're Poplar Homes!

Poplar Homes is a professional, tech-enabled, property management service. Founded in 2014, and with local teams like Silver River's, Poplar manages over 12,000 homes across 19 markets in the US.

"Teaming up with Poplar is bringing expanded support and a technological upgrade with a new way for residents to build credit for a future home purchase of their own."

– Chris Stein, Director of Operations

What's this transition all about?

Silver River Property Management is joining Poplar through the sale of its property management business. The Silver River staff will join the Poplar Team as your property managers with expanded support and resources from Poplar's 24/7 team and platform.

While Poplar is the new owner of the business, all Silver River residents will continue to receive the same level of services as they've always had.

No changes in the terms of your existing lease agreement or rent amount.
