East Lake

Bringing value to people and communities

About Us

For over 35 years East Lake has developed, managed, leased, and invested in real estate. Through strategic collaboration with communities, East Lake continues to create properties that residents and businesses are proud to live and work in.

East Lake’s founder, Elzie Higginbottom, established the firm with the belief that ideas created through interpretive frameworks are the foundation in which value is created. High morals, a strong, diverse team and strategic relationships have allowed us to transform communities.
