A Message from Our President

As summer turns into fall, we all start to look toward preparing for the upcoming holiday season and begin to reflect on what we have accomplished so far this year.  I want to take this opportunity to thank each one of our partners for the trust that you have shown in us.  We are honored to be able to care for your properties and your residents.

At Quality Management Group (Quality), we have much to be thankful for so far this year and are proud of the 47% growth in the number of units we manage in 2019 alone.  On the heels of 80% growth in 2018, we are constantly evaluating and expanding the services we offer to ensure we help you maximize your assets.  Part of this evaluation is our annual customer value survey that many of you received in your inboxes.  This feedback helps us make sure that we are continuing to provide you with the high quality service you have come to expect.

In this edition of our newsletter, you will find information about our expanded capital management program, an update on new members of our team, and Quality in the News.  We hope you enjoy this edition and we look forward to continuing to serve you.
