Great Performance Requires Great People

LumaCorp, Inc. was formed by Jim Mattingly, in 1984 to provide third-party property management and construction services. In 1989, Rich Kelly joined Jim as a principal bringing his expertise, as well as an owned apartment portfolio, to the firm. Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s LUMA partnered with HNWs, trusts, and family partnerships and offices to grow through acquisition, divesting its last third-party management assignment in 2001 to focus on owned assets, which then exceeded 4,000 apartment homes in markets across Texas. In 2015, Ian Mattingly, joined Jim and Rich as a partner and principal to help continue to grow LUMA’s portfolio, as well as its reputation as one of the Southwest’s leading residential property managers. In 2020 Rockport Equity joined the LumaCorp principals as co-owners, resulting in the launch of LUMA Residential and propelling continued growth across a broad array of residential rental property types. Nevertheless, LUMA Residential’s mission has remained unchanged for more than 35 years: “To exceed the expectations of our investors, employees, and residents.”
