Orkin & Associates
Discover a third-generation, family-owned company rich in tradition, yet enthusiastic about change. Experience a company where business, as well as friendships are valued and honored. Orkin & Associates, LLC is a full-service real estate investment and asset management company that offers a vast collection of retail, office, residential, mixed-use and raw land assets.
Founded in 1964, the company’s culture extends back to the late 1800s when Otto Orkin informally began what evolved into the world’s largest pest control company, Orkin Pest Control. Otto and his children operated the business until selling it to Rollins Inc. in September 1964. At that time, his fourth child, William, established Orkin & Associates.
The real estate enterprise has grown from a raw land investment business to a prominent, multi-faceted company holding a well-diversified portfolio ranging from real estate to securities to equity funding in development projects. In addition, Orkin has established a family business consulting practice which offers high-quality guidance to leaders of family businesses. The company maintains its focus in real estate investments consisting of raw land, retail and office product. Orkin & Associates, through its development partner, Devin Properties, develops retail, residential and mixed-use properties, and provides full-service management to in-house assets through Orkin Asset Management.
The company continues to expand, broadening its spectrum beyond properties throughout metropolitan Atlanta to the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, as well as the stunning coastline of the Florida Panhandle. Operated today by a third-generation team, the real estate enterprise still draws upon the work ethic instilled by the previous generations. Orkin & Associates is committed to being an outstanding corporate citizen and has a legacy of service and support to community organizations through its affiliation with the William B. Orkin Foundation. The firm offers its customers and communities the advantages of a family-operated business with a long-term perspective and the desire to create lasting quality to benefit future generations.
