In 1971, Eugene Ford Sr. founded Edgewood Management in order to provide superior management services that met his high standards of excellence for properties he had established under his development company,  MidCity Financial. Ford shaped Edgewood Management to fill this void in the housing industry and help him achieve his goal of quality, long-term ownership. 

Building on the solid reputation and success of Edgewood, in 2012, Vantage was born and led the way to more joint ventures and opportunities to expand our services. Founded with the same aspirations, The Ford Family launched Vantage Management to focus on a growing number of conventional multifamily properties.  Together, the Ford Family Companies offer premier property management solutions for all types of owners –  ranging from government agencies to private real estate investment groups. With performance, people and pride as our guiding principles, we are uniquely positioned to accomplish asset goals, add value and cultivate a community and lifestyle that best suits our residents’ needs.
