“The MC Companies combined core strengths create value and is the foundation
for the company we built. For us, a culture of partnership isn’t something we
hang on the wall. It’s something we actually live minute-by-minute when we
bring on a new property management contract, run the numbers on an
apartment community we’re thinking about buying or map out the strategic
direction for our company in the coming year. It’s our mutual respect, our
respective talents and our combined actions that come into play and create our
commitment to Sharing the Good Life with our families, friends, investors,
employees and our family of community residents."
