Dear FJG Family, 
I am extremely thrilled to announce our recent portfolio expansion into Maryland and Rhode Island! On June 1st we welcomed 7 new communities consisting of 30 new team members. Our footprint now expands across 7 states managing a total of 14,000 units across 85 apartment communities.  Total assets managed exceed $1.8 billion with an additional $200M worth of development currently underway! 

As we continue to expand organically with our strategic partners, we believe we're one of the top multifamily operators along the East Coast. Our growth is a true reflection of our team's commitment to quality, service, and integrity. 

Thank you for everyone's hard work over the past several weeks ensuring a smooth transition on our recent acquisitions!

United Way Kick offUW
The Franklin Johnston Group launched their inaugural United Way Campaign at the corporate office this month. As the company continues to grow, TFJG plans to be increasingly active about giving back. The great thing about giving to the United Way is that you can designate your contributions to organizations of all kinds, including interests that employees have reported being the most important to them - education, military/veterans, kids, and animals. 

Please make sure to turn in your pledge forms to Human Resources as soon as possible to participate in the United Way Campaign
Extraordinary Experiences: Customer Loyalty Shout OutCustomer
High fives to our team members at The Summer House apartments in Virginia Beach for their outstanding customer service. A resident recently wrote a letter to Senior Vice President of Operations, Matt Hacker, and said "I am writing to express how incredibly impressed I am with your staff at The Summer House. I have lived in various cities around the world and your staff here is by far the best I have encountered. Any issue I have is addressed immediately and professionally. The team has gone above and beyond to make sure I am happy and comfortable. I have had countless visitors also tell me how impressed they are with the cleanliness of the property as well. You have a really good team here. They make moving to another state far away from friend and family much easier." - Summer House resident 
Be the Solution Winners Solution
Congratulations to the following team members for taking extraordinary measures to  Be the Solution  at their communities: 

Donna McDowell, Community Manager, The Crossings at Heritage
Donna was nominated by Pam Jennings, Assistant Community Manager, for contributing her unique expertise and quick problem solving skills. Pam wrote: "I would like to nominate Donna for "Be The Solution" recognition based on her ability to solve problems through resourcefulness, 'win-win' solutions, and creative thinking. Yesterday, while replacing the partition walls on our residents' back patio, a vendor discovered a swarm of bees. The vendor immediately brought the problem to Donna's attention, suggesting an exterminator. Donna sprang into action. Donna took a more inventive approach - she reached out to a beekeeper that she knew. And that beekeeper contacted other beekeepers until one was found that could capture and relocate. Donna took a potentially harmful situation and turned it into a win-win, beautiful, and life-saving situation for all involved. Donna is truly "BEE the solution" team leader and deserves this recognition. 

Heather Watson, Software Specialist, Corporate
Heather was nominated by Melissa Pullin and Christen Faatz for her hard work and dependability as we transition several new properties into our TFJG portfolio. Christen wrote: "TFJG is growing! We're assuming management of eight new communities in the coming weeks. Heather is the one behind the scenes that gets all of the property data into MRI so that the site team can assume normal operations ASAP. She works so quickly and with exceptional attention to detail. She's key to making transitions happen without a hitch - thanks Heather for being so dependable! 

Redzer Lima, Maintenance Technician, 
Cypress Grove
Redzer was nominated by Dan Thomas, our Regional Maintenance Manager, for his incredible work ethic, inspiring attitude, and ability to get any job done. Dan said, "Redzer is always working hard with a smile on his face. He is a great team player and you will never hear him complain. He is a great asset to Cypress Grove team". TFJG is so excited to have you, Redzer. Thank you for being the solution. 

Kayla Ferdiani, Administrative Assistant, Corporate
Kayla was nominated by Gloria Harrison, VP of Business Management, for quickly picking up TFJG core values and exemplifying them every day. Gloria wrote: "For the short time Kayla has been with TFJG, she has embraced our core values and lives them. Many days I have caught her practicing "Teamwork" and "character", without hesitation! She is the perfect fit to our TFJG family. Thank you Kayla for being the solution. 

Jamie Broadwell, Maintenance Technician, Summer House
Jamie was nominated by his manager, Mike Ellrich, for his drive and initiative to learn as many aspects about property management as possible. Mike wrote: "Jamie always takes the initiative to get things done. He is a self-starter and enjoys learning new procedures. Jamie is our Maintenance Tech, but has also learned the leasing portion of our software and leasing desk procedures so he can fill in when needed. In addition, Jamie has learned to complete SODAS. Since he completes the turns, he now also knows the charges and can quickly/accurate complete the SODAS. The cross-training that Jamie able to do has made him the solution for several occasions.
