A local success story
Toonen Properties has been transforming the way Northeast Wisconsin thinks about apartment living since 1983. The journey begins well before that, as a dream of founder Robert Toonen who boldly started to build from nothing. Propelling him forward was the belief that his residents’ happiness would ultimately lead to success.
While working toward a business major in college, Robert realized his passion was in real estate. In an effort to learn the industry, he obtained a real estate license and accepted a position at a Green Bay real estate office. After some frugal saving, he was able to purchase his first rental property, a small two-family home on Green Bay’s West side. That initial investment soon led to the purchase of four more two-family homes, which proved to be the catalyst to designing and constructing an eight-unit apartment building. In 1983, Robert’s dream became a reality as he created Cedar Lake.
From the beginning, Toonen properties was innovative and finer than what people were used to in apartment living. With unprecedented attention to detail, Toonen Properties has earned a reputation for quality and high standards. Still managing the first complex built, we know it is important to maintain our properties at the utmost of care along with establishing healthy tenant relationships.
Today, with 16 properties in Northeast Wisconsin, Toonen Properties is considered to be the standard of resort-style apartment living. Toonen Properties hand picks their locations, crafts luxurious buildings, and pampers the grounds of these properties.
Most Toonen properties have swimming and fishing lakes for residents to enjoy, gorgeous gathering spaces, and resident activities and perks. All properties have the same superb standard of customer service that Bob Toonen envisioned in 1983. Toonen residences are not simply apartment complexes; they are communities built around a sense of place, gorgeous living spaces, and a great deal of local pride.
