We encourage and support the growth and development of each other, our clients, and our communities.
We recognize and acknowledge the inherent value of others.
We do the right thing. We exhibit a consistently high moral compass.
We are a family. We have fun, serve others, and freely give of our resources. We recognize our responsibility to make our communities and world a better place.

It's Getting Involved In the Community
The associates of Holladay Properties recognize our responsibility to make our communities and world a better place. This value is strengthened through our commitment to enrich the lives of families in the communities where we live through charitable investments in housing, education, and well-being.
As a company and as individuals, our partners and employees have made community service a high priority. Our people have served in a variety of positions, ranging from service as elected officials to leadership of community organizations for the arts and social services, to volunteering as mentors to school children. Our founder, Wallace F. Holladay, and his wife, Wilhelmina, founded the National Museum for Women in the Arts, now ranked as one of the most popular museums in the nation. Our partners have held national positions in the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and our company has been a proud supporter of the United Way since the early 1980s.
We are actively involved in the communities in which we are located and we love finding new opportunities. If you have a group we should be involved with, let us know!
