One of Corcoran's Manager's Honored as NEAHMA Affordable Housing Professional of the Year!

We here at Corcoran are proud to announce that one of our own fabulous property managers was recently acknowledged as the 2013 New England Affordable Housing Management Association's National Affordable Housing Professional of the Year! 

Paula Malcolm, property manager at Stratton Hill Park, an affordable community consisting of 156 apartments in Worcester, was honored as this years recipient. The award goes to a professional in the multi-family affordable housing industry who has demonstrated comprehensive property or asset management skills along with a detailed knowledge of government programs, regulations and procedures applying to affordable housing.

After beginning her career at Corcoran in 2008 with no experience in property management, Paula mastered the role of Recertification Specialist with ease while working on her educational requirements to receive her NAHP in 2010. After serving as property manager at Brockton Commons, a challenging diverse affordable community in Brockton, Paula accepted the same position at Stratton Hill in Worcester, just a short drive from her home.

Over the last two years at Stratton, Paula has excelled in managing all aspects of the property from inspections, occupancy, budgeting and reporting to resident relations. She assisted the residents in helping to form their own "tenant's association" and maintains an active role in helping her residents.

A big congratulations to Paula on her outstanding achievement, and we wish her continued success and growth in advancing her career in the field of property management and with Corcoran Management.
