Our property management team has deep expertise navigating regulations, policies, and agencies at the federal, state, and local level to create and maintain quality developments which deliver significant benefits to the community at large, successfully contributing to building neighborhoods of enduring civic pride and economic value. With a commitment to proactively enhancing both the greater New England community and the communities in which we operate, not only improving their physical fabric, but also through supporting local programming, community activities and safety initiatives, we strive to be – first and foremost -- a good neighbor.
This goal guides our approach to place-making; offering affordable, work force, and market-rate housing, and providing attractive and practical commercial and retail spaces. We maintain collaborative relationships with many public officials, housing advocates, policy makers and business professionals who work to address the need for access by all to quality housing and services and resources to live independently across New England and nationally.
