Our History

In 1969 Harris and Nancy Davis formed the company (incorporated as N&H Enterprises, Inc. in 1970) as a developer and builder of residential subdivisions. Over a period of more than 45 years, the Company has evolved to include many facets of real estate development and property management. For example, in 1981 the company began managing affordable apartment communities for the elderly in South Carolina. Since that time our reach has grown to include managing other types of affordable housing in South Carolina, as well as conventional/market rate multi-family properties in the southeast and homeowners associations in Upstate South Carolina. We provide service coordination services across the country.
Davis family members involved with NHE now include Harris and Nancy, as well as three of their children: Taylor is President, Dorothy is VP of Service Coordination and Clifton is IT Manager.
