In a world marked by rapid changes and transient experiences, milestones that celebrate longevity and commitment become all the more significant. Any institution’s 25th anniversary is a significant milestone, but when that institution is committed to helping the community, it has much more significance.
Twenty-five years. It’s not just a number; it’s a testament to resilience, dedication, and a deep-rooted commitment to community. In the heart of Texas, nestled within the vibrant city of Houston, the Ashford Communities have not only stood the test of time but have thrived, evolving into a symbol of unity and service, offering apartments in Texas that are more than just houses.
As we celebrate our silver jubilee, it’s a momentous occasion to reflect on the journey that has brought us here and the significant impact we’ve had on the lives of those in the Ashford Communities.
Building Blocks of Commitment
Ashok Kumar, our founder and CEO began buying apartment properties while studying at the University of Regina in Canada. After graduation in 1978, he concentrated full-time on a career in real estate brokerage and investment. Mr. Kumar became successful by analyzing each property, improving the properties to increase occupancy levels, and then selling them as the economy improved.
Throughout the process, Mr. Kumar discovered that giving back to his community was extremely fulfilling and he rebranded HK Capital to Ashford Communities, establishing community building as the company’s business model resulting in 66% resident retention (double the industry average). His strategy is to implement programs, such as English classes or health camps, to promote a sense of belonging among residents, ultimately resulting in resident retention.
Ashford Communities was rebranded with the intention of building a place to belong and fostering a feeling of community for many years now. The company’s founder and CEO, Mr. Ashok Kumar, understood that creating a healthy society was just as important as having physical structures. That idea became Ashford Communities’ guiding principle, and it continues to exist today, 25 years later, as evidence of their everlasting dedication.
Community Engagement and Impact
Our journey has been defined by our unwavering commitment to community service. Ashford Communities have actively contributed to the betterment of our neighborhoods, partnering with local organizations, schools, and businesses to uplift those in need. From food drives and educational initiatives to volunteering and charity events, we’ve been dedicated to serving as a positive force in the lives of our residents and the broader community, all while providing affordable apartments in Texas for those who seek a place to call home.
In the past, Ashford Communities has taken time to volunteer and give back to the neighborhood. Helping those in need is a great way to connect with your community, according to Ashford Communities. Everybody has something to offer. Knowing that we were assisting those in need gave us great satisfaction and strengthened our adherence to the principles that have guided us for 25 years.
A Home for All
Home is more than just a physical space; it’s a place where you belong, where you find comfort, and where you can be your true self. At Ashford Communities, we understand the significance of home, including the furry members of your family. For over two decades, we’ve been dedicated to providing not just houses, but genuine homes for individuals and families in the heart of Houston, Texas, including our commitment to providing pet-friendly apartments in Texas.
We believe that a home isn’t complete without our beloved pets, so we’ve created spaces where both two-legged and four-legged residents can thrive
