The list of award-winning properties managed by First Realty grows longer, with Davis Commons in Brockton, Massachusetts, receiving the 2013 Communities of Quality Regional Award for Exemplary Family Property from the New England Affordable Housing Management Association (NEAHMA).
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 15, 2013. On hand to accept the award were Bill Casper, President of NAHF Brockton, Inc., owner of the property, First Realty Management Regional Manager (and NAHP-e of the Year) Bill McGrath and the staff of Davis Commons.
Davis Commons was previously awarded both the regional and national COQ award in the category of Outstanding Turnaround of a Troubled Property in 2006.
This is the 14th regional award won by First Realty managed properties; our properties have also won 6 national awards.
