The Franklin Johnston Group—not quite one year old as a company—has assembled one of the most experienced portfolio management teams in the region’s apartment management industry. Team members include Bill Harrington, Pete Sheeran and Lori Houston.

Harrington oversees day-to-day operations, budgets and compliance for more than 1,000 luxury and LITHC communities. He holds a Certified Property Manager (CPM) designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).
Pete Sheeran, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, oversees more than 3000 residential apartments from Northern Virginia to North Carolina. Sheeran’s portfolio includes market rate, high-end luxury and affordable communities. In addition to his management background, he has experience in new construction lease-ups, renovations and tax credit communities. Sheeran holds the CPM designation and is Fair Housing Certified.
Lori Houston, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, has been affiliated with the founders of Franklin Johnston Group for more than 14 years. She manages more than 1,000 apartment residences from Richmond to Virginia Beach. In addition to her management responsibilities, Houston will play an active role in the company’s expansion of third party management contracts. She is a candidate for the CPM designation this year.
“We have assembled what we think is one of the best portfolio management teams in the business,” said Taylor Franklin, President and Chief Operating Officer. “They bring several decades of combined experience to the properties we manage, benefiting our more than 5,300 residents, our investors and our partners. We are well equipped to not only serve existing properties but also to greatly expand our portfolio in the coming months.”
