Continued Recognition of First Realty Management Staff Excellence in Property Management
The Rental Housing Association (RHA) of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board (GBREB) has selected Jane Clark, Property Manager of Brandywyne Village in East Boston, Massachusetts to receive the Professional Achievement Award as On-Site Property Manager of the Year. The award was presented at the RHA annual Expo at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston on October 22, 2014.
The Professional Achievement Award highlights the On-Site Property Manager’s “ability to achieve the financial goals of the property, commitment to customer service, success in team building with all site employees, and success in resident retention”.
Jane has absolutely fulfilled this characterization with her management of Brandywyne Village, a 47-year old townhouse community of 402 units in East Boston. She has successfully guided her property through a very challenging transition from a 221d3 affordable property to a Mark Up to Market scenario, with continued project-based Section 8. Jane’s strong relationship with members of the resident committee was instrumental in keeping the process going smoothly. She has taken a leadership role in numerous ongoing capital improvement projects including site wide landscaping, roofing, paving, and siding replacement. At the same time she pays close attention to curb appeal and “mini-model” apartment readiness. Marketing and leasing reports are kept up to date, weekend and holiday leasing coverage is reliable, and vacancies are closely controlled. Jane does not hesitate to roll up her sleeves and pitch in when necessary.
Jane Clark holds the ARM®, NAHP, FHC & CPO industry designations and has been First Realty’s Manager of the Year twice, each award a decade apart and for different properties. We are pleased she has now gained industry recognition with the Rental Housing Association’s Professional Achievement Award for On-Site Property Manager.
