Exemplary Family Property: Canterbury Place, Roslindale, MA
For the 2014 Communities of Quality Regional Award for Exemplary Family Property, the New England Affordable Housing Management Association (NEAHMA) once again selected a First Realty-managed property, Canterbury Place in Roslindale, Massachusetts. Canterbury Place has been managed by First Realty since it opened its doors in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston in 1970.
The Communities of Quality (COQ)® Awards honor the achievements of affordable housing providers who make an unprecedented contribution to developing outstanding properties for families of modest means. The COQ awards recognize outstanding property-management companies that demonstrate the highest possible quality of safe, affordable housing for lower-income families at particular sites.
A Community of Quality exhibits excellence in creating and maintaining the following: outstanding physical and financial condition; an environment that offers a high quality of life for its residents; resident involvement in planning and problem solving; collaboration with local resources in bettering the lives of residents and the community at large.
The award was presented at NEAHMA’s Annual Conference on October 14, 2014. On hand to accept the award were First Realty Management Vice President Nancy Hogan and the staff of Canterbury Place.
This is the 16th regional award won by First Realty managed properties; our properties have also won 6 national awards.
