Their mission is to develop, build, and manage housing that improves the lives of their residents and provides a sustainable business while aspiring to do no harm and benefit all.

As a Rochester-based company, Home Leasing has been providing quality real estate services for over 40 years. This has allowed them to develop an excellent reputation with residents, investors, municipalities, and employees. Their focus on customer service helps us assess the needs of their residents and present them with a quality living environment. Home Leasing's ultimate goal is to provide the best possible homes for their residents while treating their employees, suppliers, neighbors, investors, and surrounding communities in a fair and equitable manner.

The company culture and open-door policy created by Nelson Leenhouts drives the relationships they build with employees as well as residents, suppliers, neighbors, investors and communities. Home Leasing is a family-owned business, with three generations currently on the Home Leasing team. Home Leasing is committed to our mission and gladly undertook the rigorous Benefit Corporation certification process to ensure our companies’ operations, management practices, and governance remains in the best position for generations to come.

We became a B Corp because Benefit Corporation certification standards are aligned with everything Home Leasing believes in.
