Our Story

Our Philosophy

Imagine a degree in Economics, an MBA and a Ph.D in Hospitality and you've got Campus First. Value-focused strategy, dedicated management, and hands-on service dictate every project we undertake.

Our Mission

We are committed to developing and managing exceptional student housing tailored to meet each resident's unique needs and to heighten value for our partners.

Why Us:

The guiding principal of Campus First is to treat each student property as its own and to remember that each property is its own individual business first and foremost. 

Campus First operates with a total focus on its managed properties, owners and customers. We provide tailored services that fit the needs of today's resident, while at the same time focusing on owner requirements and expectations. 

Campus First starts with a critical competitive advantage: a very high regard for customer/client service. We believe it is essential that the customer (whether investor, resident, or other individuals related to a property investment/ownership) feels they are being treated with the utmost respect, care, and urgency. All staff and personnel go through a training program that teaches many of the skills needed for successful client relations and customer service. 

Client Testimony:

"We would highly recommend Campus First for any third-property management takeover.  They came into a very unique situation with a struggling asset and on-site team and turned it around for us immediately.  Their marketing ideas, social media awareness, and customer service to our residents continue to impress us on a daily basis.  Their smaller team is made up of A+ individuals who can give each asset much more attention than the larger management firms out there.  We have been truly impressed and pleased with the performance thus far."

Executive Leadership

Top notch talent. Rock Solid commitment 

Starting with our CEO and extending through executive staff, management, and corporate support, Campus First is a continuous chain of integrated talent. We grow a culture of communication which seamlessly unites multi-tiered efforts to create a cohesive and uniquely successful product. Combining decades of unparalleled success in the multifamily real estate industry, our people focus intently on the communities they serve, while maintaining a clear and dynamic vision for progress and growth. Innovation, teamwork, service, and partnership are the benchmarks of our proven success.
