Broadway Terrace, a ManSerMar, Inc Property Receives National Recognition
Local Affordable Senior Housing Community Earns National Community of Quality™ Certification
On May 1, 2016 in the City of Phoenix — The National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA), headquartered in Alexandria, Va., announced that ManSerMar, Inc. recently received National Recognition as a Community of Quality® for outstanding management of Broadway Terrace. The first affordable senior housing community to earn this certification in the City of Phoenix and in the state of AZ.
Through the Communities of Quality® (COQ) National Recognition program, affordable multifamily rental properties can be certified as having achieved a high standard of excellence in the way they are maintained and managed, the services they provide residents, the experience and training of personnel, and other criteria.
To be recognized as a National Community of Quality® (COQ), a property must receive a high score based on six criteria: Physical Inspections; Employee Credentials; Financial Management; Programs and Services; Endorsements; and Photographs and Reports. Applicants must score a minimum total of 225 points in these categories.
As manager of a Nationally Recognized COQ, NAHMA acknowledged that Broadway Terrace a ManSerMar, Inc Property provides the highest-quality affordable housing to lower-income residents while adding value to its larger community. It scored high on inspection of its physical plant by an objective reviewer and on the quality of management reviews, audits, replacement reserves and other criteria. Its staff members were judged on their credentials, such as those earned through NAHMA (e.g., a Certified Professional of Occupancy, a National Affordable Housing Professional or a Housing Credit Certified Professional) or by credentials awarded by other industry associations or organizations.
“Broadway Terrace is among the select few that have achieved the very highest standard of excellence in property management and in the provision of services to lower-income families. These services enable residents to attain high levels of self-sufficiency and success in their lives and for their families. The work done by Broadway Terrace is a credit to its entire community,” commented Kris Cook, CAE, and Executive Director of NAHMA.
