Our History


In 1973, Eugene Ford, Sr. founded Edgewood Management Corporation to provide superior management services that met his high standards of excellence for properties he developed under Mid-City. He shaped Edgewood Management to fill a void in the housing industry by providing exceptional services to help him achieve his goal of quality, long-term ownership.

Building on the solid reputation and success of managing properties for MidCity Financial, Edgewood began offering its services to outside owners in the late 1980's. In 1998, Edgewood developed and implemented a long-term strategy to increase its third party management contracts. Today, Edgewood’s portfolio contains 70% third party management contracts.

Edgewood’s clients include large and small real estate developers, non-profit organizations, public housing authorities, county housing authorities and state housing finance agencies. Through a unique combination of hands-on management, sophisticated accounting/reporting systems and enhanced resident services, Edgewood has become an industry leader in residential property management and is ranked the 8th largest manager of affordable housing by the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA).

In 2012, founded with the same aspirations, The Ford Family launched Vantage Management to focus on a select portfolio of conventional multifamily properties. Together, our sister companies offer premier property management solutions for all types of owners – ranging from government agencies to private real estate investment groups – to accomplish asset goals, add value and cultivate a lifestyle that best suits our residents’ needs.
