Freeman Webb manages 63 properties and 12, 000 units of market-rate and affordable rentals. The company has grown 25% during the last two years and increased occupancy to more that 90% in a number of its properties.
The company uses an innovative on-site software program to track and collect leasing data, which has improved management efficiency of all its properties.
In addition, Freeman Webb partnered with Grace Hill, an online multifamily education company, and other industry groups to provide more than 4,000 hours of training for its employees who, as a result, acquired dozens of certifications and additional expertise.
This effort factored into the Freeman Webb Company winning “Best Places to Work” honors in 2009, an award presented annually by the Nashville Business Journal.
“Property management starts with great properties, but doesn’t end there,” said Charles R. Brindell, Jr. Chair of NAHB’s Multifamily Leadership Board and CEO of Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC. “Freeman Webb’s commitment to nurturing employees’ skills through training and education helped the company show significant growth during difficult times.”
