A distinguished real estate investment firm, Taft Family Ventures (TFV) is highly regarded for its extensive experience, precise execution and purposeful investment philosophy. It acquires, owns, develops, constructs, and manages properties of all types including retail, multi-family and single-family residential, office, mini-storage, warehouse, medical office, student housing, and affordable housing. TFV's primary goal with these activities extends beyond financial success by building communities that are attractive, livable and sustainable.
Today, five integrated and collaborative companies fuel TFV's strategic operations through the teamwork of Taft Development Group, Taft Management Group, Taft Construction Group, Taft-Mills Group and Taft Family Office.
Since its incorporation as a real estate development firm in 1942 by E. Hoover Taft, Jr., Taft Family Offices has grown under the leadership of former N.C. State Sen. Thomas F. Taft, Sr. After taking the reins in 1988, Tom evolved and expanded the business into what is known today as Taft Family Ventures (TFV). The first major catalyst were Frankie Cash-Langley and Mike McCarty joining the enterprise as Chief Financial Officer and Director of Development respectively, with each bringing a unique skill-set of financial and development talents and potential. Then in 2008 and 2016 respectively, Tom’s sons Thomas F. Taft, Jr. and Jonathan G. Taft joined the family business, making TFV a third-generation family-owned enterprise built around a growing team of talented colleagues and professionals.
