We own everything we manage, and the majority of day to day maintenance and capital improvements are completed by our in-house maintenance teams. Our office staff has a combined experience of 75 years. We are active members of the Columbus Apartment Association, with 2 seats on the Board of Trustees, and a former chair person of the Crime Reduction Committee and a seat on the Legislative Committee. F&W has also been recognized by the National Apartment Association in an article published on our “Get Tough” policy against any of our residents that are engaged in illegal activity. We work closely with the community and our residents to encourage them to take pride in their home and part of that is to work with us to monitor the community closely and keep it safe and free of crime. It is the kind of partnership that makes crime prevention a winning proposition for property management and residents, and creates a desirable community.
We have been involved in multiple “turn around” projects in our many years of experience and operation. Most notably, a 200 unit, 12 building complex on the Near East Side of Columbus, was purchased in 1987 with only 25 paying residents. Within 18 months the renovation of the complex was substantially completed and we continue to own and operate this. We understand the priorities and dedication that is required to take a non-functioning property and create a long term viable asset.
We encourage our counter parts and the community to visit our office and any of our properties to get to know how F&W Properties has been successful for 46 years. The entire group is lead by well-seasoned supervisors and owners who work together with a shared insight and common vision. The result is a well thought-out leasing experience, providing a comfortable and well serviced and safe home for our residents. You can trust we’ll walk you through the process of obtaining a new home with efficiency and absolute confidence. Please feel free to give us a call to learn more about the company and the communities in which we work.
