ONM Living is a real estate company focused on building desirable homes in desirable locations, all for rent. We are a ‘build-to-rent’ home builder and operator. We believe that innovative, high quality, and energy efficient product should not only be reserved for those that choose to purchase a home. We offer a great place to live, but in an affordable, low maintenance, and less permanent environment.

ONM Living was created from the legacy of four generations in home building. Our CEO is also the 4th generation leader of HistoryMaker Homes, a for-sale home builder based in Grapevine, Texas. Since 1949 HistoryMaker Homes has built nearly 20,000 homes for families across Texas. We apply many of the best practices learned from decades of new construction experience to serve the needs of a new customer by meeting their needs for affordable living in preferred locations with flexible tenure.
