April 2017
Dear FJG Family, 
I want to take this opportunity to recognize our incredible compliance team who truly exemplifies our Core Value, "Teamwork."  Often in the Multifamily Industry, the compliance department is seen as the "enemy", always making it hard to move residents into communities. This isn't the case for our compliance team at TFJG. There is no doubt they are tough and thorough, but they aren't the "enemy" and they always want to be able to approve files and move people in as much as the on-site teams do.   
A special thank you to Marie Peace (VP of Compliance), Dee McCabe (Compliance Specialist), and Ashlee Hill (Compliance Specialist) for their commitment and dedication to each 50+ tax credit communities.

The Compliance Department
Marie Peace, Vice President of Compliance, said "One of the things I'm most proud of is the relationship between my department and our teams on site. I hear very often from our communities how supportive and nice Ashlee and Dee are and how much they appreciate what they do".  Marie, Dee and Ashlee are very passionate about their work but the most rewarding aspect to them is "being able to help the site team and encouraging them to be confident in what they do", said Ashlee. The compliance department encourages all team members to learn and to achieve the HCCP designation. "Knowledge is the best tool and when our teams take the time to learn more about the tax credit program and the important of doing it correctly everyone benefits." said Marie.   

Compliance Tip: Remember to be consistent, neat, and organized! When sending in a file, have a second set of eyes to look 
before sending it.
