Drucker + Falk Teams Up with Edwards Communities to Expand Portfolio

DF Multifamily and DF Commercial, divisions of Drucker + Falk, one of the nation’s most prominent multifamily management companies, are teaming up with Columbus, Ohio-based Edwards Communities and expanding operations west. Drucker + Falk will be assuming management of 3,500 apartments homes and the commercial/retail space associated with these properties in Columbus, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky. The transition will take place on March 1, 2019. Currently, Edwards Communities manages 12 properties in Columbus and Louisville and has six communities under development and construction. Drucker + Falk will also be taking over management of those six.

Drucker + Falk was under consideration for the job along with nine other companies. According to Wendy Drucker, Drucker + Falk Managing Director, “the deciding factors were our core values, business ethics, and superiority in operations. We are excited to work with such a well-respected ownership group whose heartfelt focus is developing and maintaining outstanding apartment communities and creating amazing living experiences for their residents.”

In preparation for this strategic alignment, a team of Drucker + Falk associates traveled to Columbus and Louisville to meet with Regional Property Managers, marketing/administrative experts and site teams to begin the transition. The Edwards Communities properties are a combination of high-quality suburban garden style and high-density urban communities. Each community is unique in its branding and design, with exceptional attention to detail. A Drucker + Falk regional office will open in Columbus, Ohio and work in coordination with existing regional Offices in Newport News, Richmond and Raleigh.

Jeff Edwards, President of Edwards Companies, said, "We believe this strategic partnership allows us to take Edwards Communities to the next level as we continue to focus on the growth of our development activities."
