Our Past Projects

What we have been doing over 93 Years

From the inception, the Tobin family has been involved in many real estate ventures that were diverse and each in their own way challenging and successful. Our track record speaks to our experience and ability to overcome obstacles in creating and managing over the years. Today, Tobin Properties' real estate effort is led by an Executive Team which brings decades of combined real estate experience. Our leaders and team of professionals are well-respected in the real estate industry.  We have learned a lot from our mistakes and apply that knowledge in the way we do things today. Our tradition of forward thinking was earned and we try every day to keep that in mind.  The proof is we have thrived through all of the economic cycles the last 93 years.

Late 1920's - 1930's 

In the late 1920’s, Ben Tobin was drawn to the real estate business. He started Tobin Management, the predecessor to Tobin Properties. He was managing properties for others but he had big dreams of owning his own real estate, although the opportunities were not existent at the time. In the early 1930's, at the beginning of the Great Depression, Ben drove from Detroit to Baltimore, Maryland at a time when there was not an interstate system. He drove there to meet with United States Fidelity and Guarantee, an insurance company that held bonds on a lot of real estate in Detroit. At the time, bonds were like the mortgages of today. He acquired the bonds and worked the properties until they were cash flowing and substantially enhanced in value. He had successes and failures while gaining critical knowledge and experience. That knowledge and experience along with taking calculated risks and “watching the store”, enabled him to strategically and successfully expand his holdings.
