Additional Culture Details

Village Green's culture is the foundation on which the company operates. With people at the center of all decisions leaders make, Village Green's culture is our compass to longevity and continued growth. In that Village Green manages properties in 17 states, it's important to have a culture to bring our teams together to provide consistent and authentic experiences for our residents, owners and associates. Having celebrated 100 years in business in 2019, Village Green's culture has evolved to meet the changing needs of today's multifamily housing demands. Village Green's motto, "Live Better. Live Social. Live Green," reflects the aspirations for the future of this growing company and its associates.

Village Green provides an immense array of benefits and shows appreciation in many ways for all its stakeholders. Associates are provided competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits, which makes Village Green an employer of choice. In addition, the company invests in its associates by providing education and training that offers growth opportunities within the company. CEO, Diane Batayeh, is a perfect example of this, starting as a part-time leasing consultant and working her way to the top position in the company.

The true test of a great culture is when it is challenged with unprecedented events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic reached the United States, Village Green was ready to respond to steps required in each state for both VG associates and residents. Property management was deemed an essential business, so Village Green remained open to service and support our residents. To address the fluid situation of the pandemic, Village Green established a COVID-19 task force who worked closely with corporate leadership to ensure safety and business continuity during this crisis. Our primary concern throughout this crisis has been keeping our associates and residents healthy and safe. Over the span of now three months, Village Green has maintained best practices and protocol based on the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control. With properties we manage in 17 states, it has been imperative that our leaders have been informed and equipped to address the needs of residents, associates and owners.

Moving toward recovery from the pandemic, Village Green is continuing to assess the lessons learned as we continued to operate throughout this crisis. Some amazing examples of our associates demonstrating strength and support would be in sales continuing to be strong throughout the country’s lock-down. Sales consultants pivoted to conducting virtual tours of properties, and rentals remained strong week over week. Additionally, Village Green service teams created YouTube videos to address minor repairs residents could do themselves so that service technicians were not required to enter apartments during the height of infection. The resiliency of our employees and leaders has been remarkable.

If you overlay Village Green's Mission Statement, Guiding Principles and Standards of Service in how we have handled this crisis, one can see that culture is truly the foundation for success: in the past, present and in the future.
