Company Profile

Founded in 1987 as Florida Affordable Housing Inc. (FAHI), Auburn Communities has evolved and grown with the leadership of its founders, Tom Hinners, a real estate developer, attorney and Certified Public Accountant, and Brian Hinners, a real estate broker and developer.

Over 23 years, FAHI spun off several affiliated companies to develop and manage affordable communities through the state. Among the companies it created are Auburn Development LLC, which became the primary development arm; Auburn Management LLC to manage its rental properties; Village by the Sea Realty, Inc., our real estate brokerage firm; Florida Affordable Mortgage Corp., our mortgage brokerage firm; and the umbrella organization, Auburn Communities.

Tom and Brian Hinners, along with their executive team, built the company on the belief that affordable housing can also be quality housing. The National Association of Home Builders recognized their Auburn Trace development as the "Finest Affordable Housing Community in the Nation." The senior-living communities of Boynton Bay in Boynton Beach, The Groves of Delray in Delray Beach, and Walden Pond in North Miami each received the National Council on Seniors Housing award for the "Finest Affordable Senior Housing in the Country" in their respective years of completion.
