We have called the Columbus, Ohio area home since Brent Crawford purchased his first rental property while still a student at The Ohio State University in 1993. In the late 1990s, Brent formed a friendship and partnership with former Ohio State quarterback Bob Hoying, who had returned to the area following a seven year NFL career with the Philadephia Eagles and Oakland Raiders. The partnership was formalized in 2002 when the Crawford Communities company was brought under a new Crawford Hoying parent organization.

Since that time, we have grown to a company of more than 200 team members, and more than 15,000 residents call one of our 20 communities home.

In 2013, the company transitioned again. Having evolved into a full service real estate and property management organization, we rebranded several of our subsidiary companies to better reflect the full scope of the Crawford Hoying organization. Among other changes, Crawford Communities became Crawford Hoying Living, and our development partners division became Crawford Hoying Development.

Our successes have meant more ways for us to provide first-class services to our residents and clients. We look forward to doing so for years to come.
