Our Team


GWR Management was formed in 2015, just over a year after the first property was purchased and we had our eyes set on growth!  This month, we closed on two more acquisitions bringing our portfolio to a total of 28 properties totaling almost 6,700 units!  Gateway at Ellington and Cedars at Ellington, both located in Houston, are the newest members of the GWR family.  They bring a total of 566 more units to our portfolio and will add about 15 new employees to our company.  We are excited about the opportunity to expand both our company and our employee base. 

As a fairly young company by comparison to others in the multi-family space, those that join us can work toward personal career desires at a pace that aligns with our growth goals.  As we expand our on site operations, it opens career paths for anyone to pursue within our organization.  Whether it’s in Middle Management, Human Resources, Accounting, Operations or future growth positions to be created such as Marketing or Training, growth means opportunity for all!  Because of our dedication to our employees, we have a very special group of team members that take very special care of our residents.  Growing this employee base and our GWR team is the most rewarding part of my role.  The rest of what we do is good business, but it takes unique individuals deliver outstanding service on our behalf.  We are confident that the new team members at our two new communities will be a wonderful addition to our team.


All my best,
