Boston, MA According to Trinity Management, LLC, four of its managed properties received the Communities of Quality (COQ) designation this month from the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA), certifying that they are maintained and managed in an exemplary fashion.
In addition, one of the four was celebrated as Outstanding Turnaround of a Troubled Property by the New England Affordable Housing Management Association (NEAHMA), the regional arm of NAHMA.
The newest Communities of Quality in the Trinity portfolio are: Franklin Hill Apartments in Dorchester; Forest Hills Community in Jamaica Plain; Countryside Village Apartments in Marlborough; and The Rowe in New Haven, Conn.
“We are proud to add these four properties to our tally of Communities of Quality,” said CEO Kate Franco. “We have a dozen now, which is especially satisfying since we are still such a young company.”
Trinity Management commenced business in February 2012 and quickly added more than 5,000 units to its managed portfolio. It has grown each year since, so that it now manages more than 6,000 units in three states – Mass., R.I. and Conn.
To earn the COQ designation, a property must present proof of good maintenance practices by submitting high scores on the Real Estate Assessments (REACs) and/or other inspection reports. It must prove good financial management by providing evaluations. It must show that its employees have industry credentials. It must offer services and programs for its residents. It must present endorsement letters from residents, agency representatives, and state or local officials. And, it must submit pictures of the property, programs and services, copies of any other awards earned and/or news articles written.
“Trinity is committed to quality of service and life for our residents,” said Franco. “We look forward to bringing our values and expertise to more communities in the future.”
