Our Philosophy

We believe that everyone deserves to live in safe, affordable, sustainable housing. We believe it’s our responsibility to carefully steward the resources entrusted to us by our funders, sponsors and partners. As a leader in the management of multifamily housing, we are committed to conducting business in an ethical, transparent and efficient manner and we expect to be held accountable. We strive to make this evident in how we interact with our network of residents, communities, board, co-sponsors, volunteers, investors, partners and each other.

Green Development

We are proud to partner with our parent company, Mission First Housing Group, to insure that green building features such as upgraded heating, cooling and ventilation systems, high efficiency lighting, low or no VOC materials, and ultra-low flow plumbing fixtures are incorporated and maintained in the properties we manage. This commitment to green building is not only good for the environment, it is also good for the health of our residents and decreases their energy costs.

Many CPM managed properties are built to meet Enterprise Green Communities Criteria, a cost-effective framework for developing green, affordable housing. The goal of this framework is to bring the improved health, economic and environmental benefits of sustainable construction practices to low-income families.

Columbus Property Management is also proud to manage 3 LEED certified projects – two of our projects have achieved LEED ® Gold status, and one has achieved LEED ® Platinum status.
