OUR STORY

It all started with a handshake and a single client in 1978. For over four decades, building relationships anchored by trust has earned First Communities Management (FCM) the reputation of superior apartment management services, attentiveness to client objectives and the industry’s strongest operating systems and financial reporting.

Rob Johnston, President and Founder of FCM, began the company with one objective: to be the premier property management company in the United States. Understanding that success is only achieved with a clear vision, Rob defined FCM’s core principles of excellence from the company’s inception:

  • Our Leadership Team must be passionate, proactive, and an industry leader.
  • Each client will receive the highest level of property management services
    at all times.
  • Create a company of dedicated, knowledgeable professionals with the personal core values of integrity, honesty, compassion, and honor.
  • Success lives in the building of strong relationships.

In 1978, FCM gained its first client by taking over the management of two garden apartment communities in northeast Atlanta: Versailles and Chastain. FCM has since grown into one of the nation’s most successful multifamily property management companies. We still have that very first client and those first two properties are now part of a portfolio that encompasses over 30,000 units.

FCM will continue to evolve, improve, and prosper with the dedication and team work of our valued employees. Our culture is based on this simple creed – Experience and expertise produces new opportunities but integrity, execution and relationships perpetuate these opportunities. We endeavor daily to nurture and motivate our employees, and also hire top-quality new employees. We are equally devoted to attending to all the needs and preferences of our clients. All of us take great pride in the longevity of our employees and the enduring relationships with our clients. FCM’s future will be built in the same manner as our beginning…one relationship and one handshake at a time.
