PACE Awards

By on Oct 17, 2014 in News

Several Yardi clients were recognized this week by the Property Management Association’s (PMA) Apartment Community Excellence Awards (PACE). Categories included market rate and government-assisted housing, along with green initiative communities, resident retention programs, and communities that make a difference in theGalleryBethesdair hometowns.

Habitat America was recognized for several properties, including Clare Court, which was honored in the Affordable Maryland category. The Clare Court complex offers a mix of apartments and townhomes within an intergenerational collection of residents. In addition to living in a supportive community, residents give back, enhancing the greater community through mandatory volunteer activities and training.

Vantage was awarded in the lease-up category for its management of the luxury high-rise Gallery Bethesda (pictured at right), a recently completed community owned by the Donohoe Group.  Ever- innovating, yet never losing focus on their client’s goals, Vantage has managed family-owned portfolios in the multifamily industry for 40 years.

Properties were recognized in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region including communities in Maryland and Virginia.

According to PMA Executive Vice President Thomas B. Cohn, “PACE recognizes exceptional apartments and identifies communities that are passionate about providing exceptional resident services and delivering unparalleled living experiences.  PACE not only celebrates excellence in the management of apartment communities, it also fills a void. PACE is the only awards program in the national capital region that evaluates apartment communities on their operating efficiencies and ability to deliver world-class customer service. Unlike many apartment award programs in other parts of the nation, PACE is not a beauty contest or a program to honor as many communities as possible. Instead, PACE looks to recognize truly extraordinary properties that are the best of the best.”
