A LETTER FROM CARY ROSENBLUM Every day I get the unique opportunity to witness extraordinary people doing amazing things. On a daily basis I get inspired by watching the passion of over 800 people working across our company. It is a special perch from which I get to see all the special results. Whether that be helping a client lease-up apartments that have struggled for years, serving low income seniors in a newly constructed community, developing an office building that will transform an area, mentoring kids in our affiliated non-profit, Elevates, or working to revolutionize the property management software space. On a relative basis, there is no company that I am aware of that has more human firepower and ambition than our organization. To be honest, I have been frustrated that many of the storied accomplishments of our team members go untold. I want everyone in our company to understand the remarkable successes of their teammates and their company. And so it is with this in mind, that I would like to introduce the inaugural issue of our annual Elmington Newsletter. It is my hope that this is the forum by which every associate has an opportunity to understand the company they are a part of and be as inspired as I am. It takes a village to produce the kind of outcomes you will see in these pages, and each of you is an important contributor. You may not realize it, but this is the mission statement of Elmington: Create an environment that allows extraordinary people to do amazing things. I believe that you will see that we are on our way! Thanks for being extraordinary and doing amazing things!

Elmington is a privately owned commercial real estate investment and development firm headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. We focus on commercial real estate opportunities that provide income return and capital appreciation through a diverse array of strategic initiatives. We primarily acquire retail, office, industrial and multi-family properties and identify the opportunity to add value through development, re-positioning, more effective operations or creative capitalization.

BREAKING NEW GROUND We’ve also had two groundbreaking events. The first was with the Mayor of Nashville for our Twelfth & Wedgewood workforce housing development, which will complete construction in early 2019. This will fill the need to provide affordable housing for teachers, police officers, fireman and others that work near th e center of town, but would otherwise be driven further out due to the rising cost of rents. The second was in Knoxville for our Southside Flats project and we were excited to celebrate this achievement with the Mayor of Knoxville, council persons, our builder, and our stellar Knoxville team. The development will consist of 172 affordable units once completed in 2019 and will be managed by the wonderful Christina Osbourne.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS We had a very successful Grand O p e n i n g fo r U p tow n a n d Pa t te r s o n Flats in November with our contractor, architect and, of course, our amazing Memphis property management team. We are incredibly proud of the finished product and the team that brought us to completion. A HUGE shout out to Tru Dampier, who was promoted to Regional Manager this year! We literally would not have been able to do it without him and our strong Memphis team. Tru worked long hours, completed walk-throughs and got us fully leased up in record time. Great work, Tru!

We can’t wait to see what 2019 holds for our development team and what areas we’ll grow into next. We’re proud of all the hard work from everyone that has helped pull these projects off.

S I N G L E F A M I L Y Elmington Single-Family, led by Michael Lamping and Mark McCord, is a new initiative formed in early 2017 focused on the development of raw land, ground up single-family construction and building a portfolio of high quality, well managed single-family communities exclusively for rent.

construction side of this project. Mountain Springs is a 41-acre tract located in Southeast Nashville on Murfreesboro Pike. Mountain Springs will feature 186 single-family residences centered around open park space, a large amenity center with pool and offer residents walking access to a newly constructed ele mentary school. The homes in Mountain Springs are 100% hardie board construction and feature top finishes such as granite in the kitchens and baths, plank flooring throughout, 2-car garages, 8-foot front doors and 9-foot ceilings.

Currently, Elmington has the Mountain Springs neighborhood under construction and five additional communities in the pre-development stage. Steve Sellers and Barry Watson have lead the


Elmington has built a strong pipeline of well positioned, high-traffic land to help expand and grow the build-to-rent strategy. The current pipeline has an additional 600 new homes planned for 2019 with future expansions including additional cities in the Southeast.



































Elmington has quickly become one of the largest developers of affordable housing in the nation. ECG currently has 1,850 affordable units under development with even more in the pipeline. Approximately half of our EPM portfolio is affordable with about 10,000 units under management. Those are pretty i m p r e s s i ve n u m b e r s ! We a r e p l a y i n g a huge role in addressing the housing crisis, and especially where there is the greatest need - in the urban core.

H u n t e r N e l s o n , B r a d C a t h e r, J o h n Shepard, Joe Horowitz and Grace Evans have all been hard at work closing these deals and looking for other markets for us to bring our experience. Chestnut Flats will be our first development in Chattanooga, Te n n . a n d w e h o p e t o a d d a t l e a s t two new states to our portfolio in 2019.


LET’S TALK DEALS Two new, interesting deals worth mentioning are Patten Towers, soon to be “The Patten,” in Chattanooga, Tenn. and Highland Creek in Memphis, Tenn. ECG is redeveloping Patten Towers, which was formerly a hotel that is over 100 years old. Experts predict that Hotel Patten would entertain 60,000 guests per year in their 251 rooms, including presidents and other dignitaries. EPM has already stepped up and taken over the management portion of this 196,500 square foot project. This is a unique opportunity, as we acquired Patten with a troubled history, but there are big plans for what happens next. Patten will be a $15 million rehab including modernizing the elevators (which still have the same engine from 1908), a theater in what was formerly the ball room, a library, computer area and much more. Highland Creek is currently a market rate apartment complex that will be converted into an affordable property. It is located approximately one mile from Graceland and will have 441 units. EPM will be managing this deal, Elmington Construction will help with the AIA and Creative will be doing all of their rebranding and marketing. It will truly be a group effort!

Ways to Lease Like an Owner

With Sales Director Kory Nelson


6. Exposure

Are they engaging?

• Are NTVs or evictions going to impact their leasing goals in the next 30-60 days? If so, are your goals high enough to cover those move outs?

• Data suggests the ideal length of an email is between 50 and 125 words. Emails this length had a response rate above 50%. A simila r study found emails with approximately 20 lines of text, or about 200 words, ha d the highest click through rates. When in doubt, keep emails short and under 200 words. - Hubspot

7. Follow-up Strategy Are you attempting to contact your leads enough? • The average renter searches for 10.5 weeks. Make sure you are attempting to contact your leads beyond the first 72 hours.

2. Craigslist Ads Are they easy to read? • Your ad shouldn’t be one long paragraph. Your prospects will lose in terest and go onto the next post. Bullet Points are your friends.

8. Traffic Are your traffic sources gathered and accurately recorded?

3. ILS’s Are they fresh and accurate?

• Compare your ILS lead reports to your Dashboard activity report.

• Don’t frustrate your prospects with expired specials or inaccurate pricing. These sho uld be on point, all the time.

9. Your Competitors

4. Phone Calls

• Review your market survey, or have them shop a comp prior to your one-onone.

What are you up against?

Do they follow the “5 Question” Guest Card?

10. Ideas

• ILS’s record every call to your property. Take advantage of this feature.

Are you in a box? • Brainstorm new ideas with your team to generate traffic.

5. Social Media • When was the last time you posted something interesting?

ELMINGTON CONVICTIONS Forget the Ordinary. Elmington, at its inception, was built around the idea of thinking beyond the box to achieve great things. It’s a way of life; a conviction. Empower yourself and others to make decisions and mistakes. Earn equally from setbacks and successes.

Think Like an Owner. This isn’t just a job for our employees. When it gets frustrating, we smile because we’re grow. If something isn’t working, we don’t just fix it, we make it better. We use our ideas, our hands, and our hearts to operate as if we are owners in the company.

Treat Amazing People Amazingly. Positivity, energy, and enthusiasm are contagious. We pass them on responsibly. This is a partnership. We give and we want our employees to give. We’re open to new ideas. We don’t say no, we ask “how?” Ultimately, we show each other what amazing really feels like through acknowledgement, open ears, and team work.

Move People Along. Elmington is not for everyone. Our goal is to never burden our overachievers with underachievers. We set expectations, we front stab when necessary, and we move people along quickly when it is the best for the team.

Front Stab. Above all, be honest with yourself and others. Front stabbing is all about open communication and transparency. We continually seek opportunities to innovate and improve the Elmington experience. Change begins here, personally and professionally.

Elevate. For many of you, being a part of Elmington Elevates is central to your mission here at Elmington. During open enrollment, you’ll have the option to make recurring tax-deductible charitable contributions to the important work Elevates is doing – and we’ll do the hard work by taking it right out of your paycheck for you. More information about Elevates is included later in this guide.

Centralized software is THE central nervous system of an organization. Fortress will be just that for Elmington and I can’t wait!!! -Judy Lefkovitz

ELMINGTON’S STATE OF THE ART SOFTWARE Elmington Technology has developed our very own brand-new state of the art property management software, Fortress! Since it is OUR software, the sky is the limit as to what it will ultimately do and Elmington Technology wants to and will do it for you! We hope you’ll love its attractive and user-friendly screens. The plan is for the first properties to start rolling onto it in at the end of the year and to not stop until all properties are on it. Fortress will have two platforms (training and production) and will integrate with the existing Dashboard. With the arrival of Fortress, Elmington will also switch to two other new platforms – Nexus for Accounts Payable and Sage-Intacct for Accounting. The accounting department is working hard, along-side ET, to make these other transitions seamless. ET appreciates and understands the effort that the properties will undergo to switch to new software, but we promise that we will do everything we can to assist with the transition and will always welcome your feedback.

Elmington recognizes that our teams and our communities are filled with giving, philanthropic and caring people. Three years ago, we started Elmington Elevates to create a space for everyone Elmington interacts with to act upon those feelings: we host at least six events per year for our teams, residents, vendors, and other business partners to participate in charitable contributions. Our business partners and vendors enjoy the ability to interact with Elmington in a positive light, our residents appreciate the chance to help their local communities and engage with their fellow residents, but most of all it is about engaging our team. Our team members feel engaged in something bigger than themselves.

Elmington Elevates is launching a pilot program focused on mentoring local students. Given the need for at-risk youth to have mentorship and be surrounded by a strong community network as they enter adulthood, we’re committed to providing real-world skills in areas of communication, interviewing, conflict management, and financial independence. Through a 10-week focus period, we want to build a foundation of relationships between the volunteer Mentor and the student Mentee with the potential to

encourage a long-term relationship beyond this focused period of the module learnings. While Elmington focuses on real estate, we believe that the educational topics will transcend the industry that the student eventually chooses to e n t e r. E l m i n g t o n E l e v a t e s i s p r o u d to partner with Elmington Property Management (EPM) to recruit volunteers to serve as Mentors to introduce youth to a new and growing p r o f e s s i o n a l i n d u s t r y.
