While Community First directs our day-to-day decisions, OnPoint’s core values define a standard for interaction between our team, our residents, our investors and our partners.
The OnPoint team is a group of individuals, who have collectively spent decades serving in all levels of management, including real estate sales and marketing, multi-family management, mortgage REIT management, engineering, information technology, real estate accounting and not-for-profit environments.
As natives and/or long-term transplants to the Dallas Fort Worth area, we are intimately familiar with the metroplex and have had growing concerns over the shrinking inventory of safe and affordable apartment homes.
As multi-family investors, one of the most difficult challenges we have faced, is touring vintage properties where children are unable to play outdoors due to a lack of child-friendly amenities or an unsafe environment.
While we are proud Texans, the reality is that the DFW area has many vintage apartment communities that are poorly managed and maintained.
On the flip side, residents living in vintage properties which ARE relatively safe and well-maintained, are paying enormous utility bills because of the lack of proper attic insulation, dilapidated windows, leaky faucets, and aged and neglected HVAC systems. Through our own experience, we know residents can pay as much in utilities as the cost of rent, particularly during periods of extreme cold and heat. Instead of pushing for change, residents often uproot their families and move to another property hoping to lower their rental costs only to find themselves facing similar budget challenges.
All families, regardless of socioeconomic levels, should have a safe, healthy and secure home that fits within their budget and provides them with a sense of community and connection. While many multi-family investors focus solely on the bottom line, OnPoint’s primary focus is establishing a Community First culture while implementing standards of sustainability.
Using the synergy derived from our varying backgrounds and with an in-depth understanding of the DFW market, the OnPoint team developed the Sustainable, All-Inclusive Living, or SAIL strategy.

Our business is built on relationships – with our residents, property staff, investors, brokers, lenders, and contractors. The OnPoint team is dedicated to investing time and energy to build honest, lasting relationships. Our approach is authentic and well outlined in our core values.
