The Importance of Giving Back
by Jay Madary, President and CEO of JVM Realty
This has been a great year for JVM.
We’ve added two outstanding communities so far to our portfolio and have welcomed great new team members. We continue to drive impressive operational and financial results out of the apartment properties we manage.
I’m confident that when we look back at the history of this company, 2018 will mark an important milestone in the growth of JVM. But I’ll remember this year for other reasons as well.
Real estate companies, like businesses in every industry, have a responsibility to serve the communities in which they operate. That includes contributing to local non-profits and volunteering to help charitable organizations fulfill their mission of helping others.
At JVM, we take this responsibility very seriously. We have been fortunate to build a very successful company, and we feel a strong sense of duty to dedicate our time and resources to those in less fortunate circumstances. That is something that will never change – no matter how much our company grows.
Giving back to the local communities in which we operate is a fundamental component of our corporate philosophy here at JVM, and I’m very proud of the work our associates have done so far this year in organizing blood drives in Kansas City and in raising money for Alzheimer’s disease research in Ohio. You can read more about these efforts later in this newsletter.
The fourth quarter is typically the most active quarter for JVM’s charitable initiatives. I always look forward to seeing and hearing the enthusiasm from our associates as they share stories of their Community Day volunteer experiences or feedback from residents who participate in our onsite programs. Giving back simply feels good.
I hope you enjoy this fall edition of our quarterly newsletter, which details our recent news, media coverage and charitable efforts.
Thank you for your continued trust in JVM, and we look forward to speaking with you again in the next edition of our quarterly newsletter!
