Whether you’ve been a resident of Lincoln, Nebraska for years or if you have just moved, there are dozens of attractions, things to do, and amazing restaurants to eat at. But it can be hard to narrow them down when you’re looking for something new to try.

At Hip Realty, we strive to be more than just a property management company, we want to be an integral part of the Lincoln community. In addition to helping property investors manage their property and residents find a great apartment for rent, we want to encourage everyone to get out and find a great new Italian restaurant to try or an activity that celebrates what Lincoln is all about.
