Our History

Pillar Real Estate Investors is all about putting our tenants first. From start to finish, we strive to provide a painless leasing process and a great living experience for our tenants. In fact, that’s the very reason our company was founded by Michael Lorigo. He saw many high-potential properties in prime locations being mismanaged and wanted to deliver something better for area tenants.

Since Pillar was founded in 2008, we’ve grown into a multi-dimensional, multi-million dollar real estate and property management company. Today, we own and manage hundreds of apartment units throughout downtown Buffalo, Hamburg, Cheektowaga, Clarence, Williamsville, and other Western New York suburbs.

Despite our company’s rapid growth over the years, our mission remains the same. We’re dedicated to providing comfortable, seamlessly managed properties – and a better living experience for our tenants.

Our People

What makes Pillar different? In a word: People. When you choose one of our properties to call home, you’ll notice the difference too. We’re dedicated to meeting your needs, providing a comfortable and convenient place to live, and treating you with the highest level of respect and service along the way.

Our management team is comprised of professionals who are dedicated to your satisfaction. Our leasing agents will partner with you to help you find the right space for your lifestyle and budget. They’ll offer you tours, answer your questions, and help you with the paperwork. And once you choose to call one of our properties home, our managers will work hard to deliver a remarkable living experience.

We also employ a skilled maintenance team with decades of combined experience who regularly inspects our buildings and grounds to ensure they’re kept up to the highest standard. We even offer 24/7 emergency maintenance response if there’s ever a major problem in your apartment after hours.

At Pillar, we are committed to providing a wonderful place to live for our tenants. And that’s not just a service goal; it’s our promise to you. If there’s ever any issues, all you have to do is let us know. Every property detail is as important to us as it is to you and we want you to enjoy the highest quality of life when you’re with us. Welcome to Pillar – and welcome home.
