The Year Was 1976.

In a climate of progress and new beginnings, Peabody Properties was born.

Peabody Properties traces its roots back to the 1890’s when Ed Fish’s grandfather, Manus Fish, started a construction business in Boston, Massachusetts. Today, with its rich history and strong legacy, Peabody Properties is one of the largest and most respected management companies in the Northeast. As we look back on Peabody’s over 45 years in business, we are amazed how much we’ve changed and how much we’ve grown and we are reminded of the one thing that hasn’t changed…our solid reputation for excellence in everything that we do.

The impact of Ed Fish’s efforts on behalf of multi-family housing resonates strongly throughout the company and will live on through the personal commitment of his children, Karen Fish-Will, Principal & CEO and Melissa Fish Crane, Principal & COO and through the talented leadership team and staff. Their vision and core values directly impact the way we continue to do business, which directly impacts the lives of all those who call one of our managed communities home.

We look forward to what the next 45 years will bring!
Edward A. Fish, Founder
