Developing and managing the future of apartment living
January 2014
Dear FJG Family, 

A new year brings exciting challenges for our new business. This fresh start is an opportunity to make this year the best yet. I am looking forward to seeing the communities regularly and being actively involved with the onsite teams. We have many new and exciting developments in place this year that create opportunities for employee advancement and portfolio growth. The most exciting opportunity we have as a company is to watch our core values come to life within each of our employees. Our core values were developed as the root of our business and will stand true to how we operate in the future. I look forward to working with everyone in 2014.  Happy New Year!



Taylor Franklin 
Our Core Values   

Members of our leadership team came together in October to Corolla, North Carolina where they spent three days bonding and creating the company's core values and mission statement. Each core value was given intense thought to the effects it has on our employees and our business. What we found was that these core values embraced everything that lived inside of each of our employees in the way they feel about our company and the way they do business every day. In every community, these core values are proudly displayed for all to see.  


Commitment - Our passion is people!

Knowledge - Learning empowers...ASK!

Teamwork - Make something happen!

Character - Work like no one is watching.

Communicate - Honestly and respectfully.

Balance - Enjoy life...

Company Holiday Celebration   

Company employees from across our portfolios gathered in the luxurious Hilton Hotel Virginia Beach Oceanfront to celebrate the holiday season and a successful 2013. Attendees enjoyed cocktail hour, a catered dinner, and live entertainment. Six prestigious awards were presented to the top performers and two special company videos were shared for the first time. It was a fun evening had by all!    



2013 Award Winners

We believe that all of our employees are the best in the industry. This year, the company recognized the most outstanding teams and individuals on their success by giving out six prestigious awards at the company holiday party. We would like to take a moment to congratulate each award recipient on their hard work and commitment to excellence.

Our Fish! Philosophy
"The Choose your Attitude Team made me realize how lucky I am! When they said not everyone gets to do what they love, but anyone can choose to love what they do! It made me think... I already love what I do, which made me realize I get to do what I love! I get to talk to people every day; I get to help some of our customers find a new start or a home away from home, a place to start a family, and sometimes I even get to help achieve a dream or two!"
-Myra, Southwind Apartments
