While TGM was organized in 1991, its roots go back to the mid-1970’s when the group that formed TGM first worked together. From then until now some $2.9 billion in equity has been invested and 58,000 apartment units have been purchased and managed. TGM believes that multifamily investment requires hands-on management. Thus, acquisitions, property management, construction, property maintenance and dispositions are fully integrated.
