Darden & Company was formed in 1999 to provide detailed Project Management with a high degree of sophistication. The company’s founder, William E. Darden, Jr. has over 38 years of experience in Real Estate Investment and Development. Mr. Darden has worked as an Investment Manager, Developer, Owner, and Lender, participating in over $3.5 Billion and 14 million square feet of real estate. He has extensive hands-on experience and specializes in development, design and construction. Mr. Darden has worked for a construction scheduler (DDR International), a developer (The Wilson Company), and Wall Street firms Dean Witter Realty and Morgan Stanley Realty. He has traveled nationally overseeing various real estate projects.
In 1999, Mr. Darden was presented with an opportunity to oversee the project management for the land development, design and construction of a $50 million mixed-use development in Atlanta, Georgia. This opportunity opened the door for what is now over 100 projects and growing. 100% of our work has come through referrals and we have repeat clients with whom we have completed numerous projects.
While we have experience in many aspects of real estate, we focus the majority of our efforts on project management. Our goal is to provide the highest level of project management possible for each client that retains our services. We have small and large projects but are committed to deliver the same level of service no matter what the size. We believe in scheduling, budgeting, and quality…the three keys to any successful development. We have developed a “process” that we institute on every project, tweaking it as each project dictates. That process is worked and adjusted until a successful outcome is achieved.
