Cortland Partners – Why Work For Us?

We are designers, general contractors, and asset managers – from all walks of life with all sorts of experience – all rolled into one multifamily powerhouse.

We are people-powered, entrepreneurial, and high-performing – and we care deeply about what we do and who we serve. We also think that who we are is defined by what we value and the actions we take:

Our Core Values

  1. Love what you do, and let it show.
  2. Do the right thing for the right reason.
  3. Listen, with your heart and your mind.
  4. Grow together, and play as a team.
  5. Have the courage to be better.

At Cortland, we’re not just getting bigger – we’re getting better. Not only did we move into the large category in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplaces competition, but we also moved up in our ranking to #8, and our very own Steven DeFrancis was awarded the Leadership award for our category! We owe it all to our associates for making Cortland such a great place to work.

We offer superior living experiences by providing innovative service, quality, and care in every detail. Because we think differently, collaborate effectively, and challenge the status quo, we’re able to create unique communities where our residents can live a better life focused on what matters most to them.

The vision behind every one-of-a-kind Cortland community is born and raised in-house by teams who bring the best practices from a wide array of customer-centric industries to the mix. We’re always looking for passionate, smart, service-minded people to join our teams as we take better living to a whole new level.

At Cortland, we believe in a better life where hospitality is always a given, each detail is worth a second thought, and every open door is a new opportunity to go beyond expectations. We come to work every day to create possibilities for people: our residents, our associates, and our investors.

Our Residents: We want the place they call home to be the place they can’t wait to come home to.

Our Associates: We want to empower our people to be the best versions of themselves as we grow and succeed together.

Our Investors: We want our investors to feel like true partners, who believe in the power of creativity and conviction and who are confident in our ability to deliver on our innovation. 

Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, we have communities in ten states and regional offices in Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Houston, and Orlando.

    I have been working at Cortland Partners full-time (More than a year)


    Company culture is truly amazing! Cortland is a huge family and it's something to admire. I enjoy coming to work to give our customers a reason to smile. Cortland is all about great service. Creating value for a better life is honestly something that we stand by and are devoted to on a daily basis. There are plenty of opportunities for growth at any level. I am blessed to work for a company that believes in me and has given me the opportunity to advance as an employee, person, and teammate.


    Cortland is growing pretty fast and due to that it has encountered a few hiccups here and there, but they never lose focus of their vision and are always making sure they do the right thing for the right reasons.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend more communication between managers to onsite staff. Communicating to each team member is crucial and it creates a better understanding of why things need to be accomplished.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cortland Partners.


    So I got the interview by applying online. I got an email and finally scheduled a phone interview...interviewer never called. Called them back and emailed, they never responded. Weird HR department. Once when I called, the interviewer answered, heard me, then hung up.
