Karen has lived in downtown Little Rock in historic houses for nearly 40 years.  She comes from a family dedicated to historic restoration.  After a successful career as District Manager opening stores for Walmart throughout North America, she decided to "settle down" and converted her beautiful historic home into a Bed and Breakfast in the heart of the Governor's Mansion District.  We are fortunate that Karen joined our team as our first team member.  Now she has returned to her roots as our Construction Manager.

All About Us

The Story:

Downtown Dwellings founders, Mark Brown and Jill Judy are dedicated to purchasing distressed buildings in the heart of the historic areas of downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. They thoughtfully restore each property, restoring the architectural features while adding modern elements and conveniences. 

“We believe that by preserving these wonderful historic properties, both homes and commercial buildings, and creating in them quality living space for today’s lifestyle makes our community a better place.” Jill Judy, co-owner.


Each apartment is unique; each building has a character all its own. The company has restored and created apartment homes and urban lofts from hundred-year-old houses, school buildings, even a former church. The neighborhoods as well have their own special character, with some among quiet, shade-lined streets, others nearer to the bustle of downtown.


“Downtown Dwellings offers more than a place to live. It is all

about community, and neighbors, and saving these beautiful old neighborhoods. We invite you to become part of it.”

– Mark Brown, co-owner.
