The Property Management Association’s Apartment Community Excellence Awards recognize excellence in the management of multifamily residential properties. Participate in PACE to:

  • Increase occupancies.
    PMA will provide a marketing kit to help winners promote their community. PMA will also profile PACE award winners on its website and promote their achievements on social media sites and in its printed publications. Winners can use PACE marketing tools to drive prospective residents to the community and to retain existing residents.
  • Build teams.
    Entering the PACE Awards provides a huge shot of adrenaline to your onsite team. It sends a message that you appreciate their efforts and you believe that their performance is award-worthy. Few, if any, external programs can boost morale and improve performance more than PACE.
  • Benchmark excellence.
    PACE establishes benchmarks for excellence in property management that can be used by all participants to improve the quality of management service provided to residents and owners. If the minimum standard for an award category is not reached, an award will not be presented in that category.
  • Improve Your Community.
    Each participant will receive a copy of the judges’ evaluation sheets that include strengths and opportunities for improvement determined during the site visit and evaluation of the application.
  • Showcase your achievements.
    PACE Awards winners will be announced at the Property Management Association 2021 Awards Ceremony - Celebrating Excellence in Our Industry, Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at the North Bethesda Marriott Conference Center Hotel. The winners will be showcased in PMA’s BULLETIN and featured on PMA’s website, and
