Virginia Beach, Va. – The Franklin Johnston Group (TFJG), a Virginia Beach-based multifamily development and property management firm, has promoted Senior Community Manager, Arista Lueck to the position of Portfolio Manager.
Arista started working with the owners of TFJG before the company was officially founded in 2013. Beginning in 2009, she spent nearly five years as the Community Manager at Somerset Pointe in Gainesville, VA. As TFJG began to grow in mid-2014, Arista’s outstanding performance as a Community Manager led to a promotion to Senior Community Manager and an opportunity to relocate to Hampton Roads. During that time, she was responsible for overseeing four very challenging communities in Newport News and Hampton. Later in 2015, Arista was offered the chance to move back to Northern Virginia as the Senior Community manager at River Run Apartments in Woodbridge, VA. The development and execution of a successful turnaround strategy at this 300-unit, senior tax credit community represented a very significant opportunity for The Franklin Johnston Group. Now, almost four years later, River Run has become one of the highest performing assets in AIG’s portfolio. In addition, TFJG’s strong performance at River Run ultimately helped to facilitate the addition of a portfolio of 12 senior LIHTC communities that AIG owns in Northern Virginia, North Carolina, and Hampton Roads. Chris McKee, President of Operations, stated, “Arista embodies so much of what TFJG stands for. She is honest, hard-working, always positive and genuinely cares about making a positive impact on all of the people around her.”
In this new role as a Portfolio Manager, Arista will initially have responsibility for 6 properties totaling 1,040 units in the Northern Virginia and Rhode Island region: River Run I & II (Woodbridge, VA), Village Oaks (Catonsville, MD), Lakeview (Bethesda, MD), Charles Place, Colony House and Curtis Arms (Providence, RI). She will be based out of TFJG’s office in Shirlington, VA.
