  • "Since 2013 we have been working with Progressive Management on the development and management of assisted living projects in the Southeast. Progressive has been an integral part of the development process and successfully leased up the facilities much quicker than expected. Their staff is dedicated and compassionate, and their focus on resident satisfaction continues to drive our exceptional reputation in the market. "

  • "I am an absentee owner of an assisted living community and need a management company to turn around a troubled property and keep it operating until it can be sold. We hired Progressive Management Group, Inc. The community is out of regulatory issues with the State and now has a contract to be purchased and upgraded. "
