How We Came to Be / Who We Are

zeff_conf_iconWe have a commitment to the long term viability of the nation's stock of affordable housing. Our founders understand the need for quality affordable housing and how shortages would impact our country and its citizens. We realize that, although needed, our services could create a financial burden on the housing community being served. We have attempted to minimize this by creating a pricing structure based on cost of service plus a modest profit. In our industry, pricing based on the market causes an undue burden on the properties and ultimately communities suffer.
