Even before receiving his finance and real estate degrees at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Nathan “Nate” Kaplan learned his way around property development and his family business by playing in empty homes and exploring construction sites.

Today, he says his goal is to “grow our Southeast efforts primarily in Charlotte, Raleigh and Atlanta, selected because of their high-tech industries and attraction for young people. We promulgate job growth and concentrate on forward thinking.”

Kaplan is responsible for acquisitions, site sourcing, development coordination and asset management at Morris J. Kaplan Communities, now Kaplan Residential.

At 30, he can be seen around his condo on the Atlanta BeltLine, Chabad Intown, working out, and doing volunteer work for Friendship Circle, for people with special needs.

In July, he was selected by Jezebel magazine as “good looking and go getting” in its selection of “20 Most Eligible Atlantans.”
