Halpern Enterprises, Inc. was founded by the late Bernard Halpern, who came to this country from Poland in 1938 at the age of 16. With the dream of starting a new life in America, he settled in Atlanta, learned English by attending night school, and within two years had saved enough money to purchase his own grocery store. Bernard later sold the store and became a residential real estate developer, specializing in duplexes, triplexes and small apartment complexes. In the early 1960′s, he exchanged his residential properties for shopping centers in the Atlanta area. Bernard’s wife and children joined him in the company, and upon his death in 1980, took over its management.
Today, Halpern remains a family owned and operated business. Bernard’s son Jack serves as Chairman, and his sister, Carolyn Halpern Oppenheimer, is Executive Vice President. They have continued to successfully expand the business through new development and acquisitions and have recruited a talented and dedicated management team led by President Bill Brown. The next generation has joined the team as well, with Benjamin Halpern, Matthew Oppenheimer, and Brad Oppenheimer taking on key roles in leasing, development, and property management.
With more than 50 years in the industry, Halpern Enterprises is recognized as one of the Southeast’s most experienced shopping center development and management companies.
The company has been built on a solid foundation of integrity and a long-range view of business relationships. It is proud to maintain a total commitment to the highest ethical standards and practices established by its founder.
