Post Properties, Inc is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that specializes in developing and operating upscale multifamily apartment communities in ten markets in the U.S. It's one of the largest operating in this area. Its New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol is PPS.

Post Properties was founded in 1971 by John A. Williams. It originally developed and managed garden-style apartments in the Atlanta area. It shifted to urban infill properties in the late 1080s. It went public in 1993, and in the late 1990s merged with Columbus Realty Trust. David Stockert is the President and CEO.

It likes to provide resort-style garden apartments in urban areas. They use the brand Post Preferred Homes™, begun in February 2005, to sell townhomes and condominiums. Their headquarters are in Atlanta Georgia. They own 61 communities, with a total of 21,890 apartment homes.
