Our culture is what separates us from other companies. We look for and reward dedication, innovation, creativity and hard work in each of our team members because our success depends on it. Improving every community we touch is central to what we do every day. JES Holdings employees embrace a corporate culture in which we extend our partnerships well beyond the real estate, healthcare and financial services industries.
“In my role, I manage the preparation of financial statements, budgets, cash reports and projections for AEP as an entity and for the investment funds our investors invest into. Since joining the company in 2012, I’ve learned more than I could have ever imagined about the real estate and real estate investment industry. Learning the variety of ways real estate deals can be developed, constructed, financed and managed has shed light to how valuable a career in real estate can be. JES and its affiliate companies provide an atmosphere that allows you to grow your career and knowledge within the industry that can’t be found anywhere else.”
“Since joining Fairway Management in 2009, the company has supported me to be my best through continuous encouragement, education, training and philanthropic opportunities. Additionally, working at Fairway Management has helped me gain confidence in my experience and ability to make decisions in the workplace.”
“One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is receiving feedback from a resident regarding the outstanding care and services they have received and how it has enhanced or improved their overall quality of life. Comments such as these speak volumes in terms of validating our staff’s dedication and responsiveness to each resident’s unique needs. We value the opportunity to serve our communities. I consider one of our greatest achievements to be the relationships we have developed with numerous residents and families for nearly 20 years.”
“As an asset manager, I oversee areas of Affordable Equity Partners’ Georgia stabilized portfolio. I have the opportunity to support AEP’s continual growth while applying knowledge I gained in previous roles in my career and while gaining new knowledge. One of the most important lessons I’ve learned about this industry since working with AEP is how stretch assignments play an integral role in increasing ingenuity and time management.”
“As a project superintendent, I am able to experience a variety of both rural and urban communities. The most rewarding part of my job is meeting the individuals and families who benefit from the properties we build. Fairway Construction plays an important part in helping many people get a new start in a quality home they can be proud to call their own. Not only do our properties impact the lives of our residents, but they inspire prosperity in the community as a whole, too.”
“I began with Fairway Management in 2009 as a property manager and later became a senior property manager before beginning my current role as a regional manager. Throughout these transitions, I felt I had a great support team in Fairway Management. Additionally, Fairway Management has provided me with many training and educational opportunities, including collaboration with a learning coach, annual continuing education trainings and helping me pursue and obtain my HCCP, HCM-R and SHCM designations. These opportunities have helped me learn, grow and be better prepared to lead my team to reach our goals.”
“There are many benefits to working for AEP, and there are a lot of opportunities for growth within the company as well. Being a part of the Leasing team has helped develop me into a better leader and has provided me with the training needed to expand my knowledge of the affordable housing industry. AEP also offers reimbursement opportunities for courses related to your job, which is beneficial for not only the company but also personal development.”
“In my current role as Executive Director of Cross Creek at Lee’s Summit and my previous role as Executive Director at Country Club Care Center, I have gotten to see first-hand how much this company truly cares for the residents and people we serve. Through Capital Health Management, we receive the supplies and staffing we need to take care of the residents, where at other places, you get the bare minimum. Capital Health Management has given me the opportunity to take on new responsibilities, such as obtaining my administrators license after being a director of social services for 11 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed working for the company, which is testament to why I have been here over 20 years! I would not want to work anywhere else.”
“It has been a great journey working as a female in a male-dominated industry. I would encourage other women in the industry to stay focused on their craft, be resilient and find a mentor. Working in construction has helped me build character and integrity while remaining passionate and committed to the work I do. I love the challenge of working within the constraints of a budget and schedule while delivering a quality product we can all be proud of. If you are looking for a company that encourages growth in your career and you have the mindset to put in the work and be committed, Fairway Construction welcomes such individuals.”
“The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that I am helping residents acquire quality and safe housing at an affordable price. My role as a property manager has helped me build long-lasting relationships with many of my residents. With our open-door policy, I am able to hear residents’ questions and concerns and show them they are important. Through this approach, residents can see that Fairway Management truly cares for their needs and that they are not just a number to us.”
“My role as the community manager at The Village of Bedford Walk for three years, has helped me better understand that our residents are truly kids at heart. It is so rewarding to see them living their best lives as they laugh, try new things, meet people and make memories. Every day our staff is learning new things from our residents, and we cherish the moments when they share their stories and experiences. Working at The Village of Bedford Walk makes you feel like you have 100 grandparents!”
“Since joining JES Holdings, I have been exposed to all aspects of real estate investments. There are no limits on how far a new employee can grow in this organization. We consider all aspects of a person’s education, industry experience, personality and other characteristics during the recruitment process. When hiring or creating advancements for existing staff, we seek to find smart, entrepreneurial people who are willing to work hard. We push all employees to have a sense of curiosity in our business, which has helped us maintain a competitive advantage.”
“Our culture empowers talented people to apply unconventional thinking and create a lasting impact in the communities we serve. I joined Affordable Equity Partners’ leadership team as the first Director of Business Development during a time of tremendous company growth. Our passion for community engagement and service provides a platform that allows us to tirelessly advocate for affordable housing. We learn something new every day and have the privilege of being surrounded by a team whose discipline and creativity improves the lives of the people who make our business possible.”
