“When we launched The Franklin Johnston Group a little over a year ago, one of our goals was to associate ourselves with the top tier owners and developers of apartment communities,” said Taylor Franklin, chief operating officer of FJG. “Waverton Associates not only fits the top-tier description, but they also share common core values with our company.”
