Westminster Management honored with 24 awards. (New Jersey).
The honored Westminster properties vary in size from smaller and are located in a range of settings -- from traditional suburbs to urban centers and suburban waterfronts. Many of the awards recognized outstanding property characteristics, such as curb appeal, leasing or maintenance excellence.
However, Epstein was quick to note that, "In each case it is really the people at the property who deserve the real credit."
For example, Sussex House, a 52-unit community located in Cherry Hill earned top honors in the NJAA's Garden State Award for Excellence in Curb Appeal, as well as the AAGP Best in Living Award for Curb Appeal. The Willows, a 347-unit complex in Barrington was named Outstanding Community by the NJAA and also honored with the AAGP Award for Curb Appeal.
Woodview at Marlton, the recently constructed 288-unit garden apartment complex in Burlington county was named "Outstanding New Construction" by the NJAA and also received three awards from the AAGP in the categories of overall community excellence, leasing, and maintenance excellence.
Additional property awards included the Fairways, a 332-unit property in Blackwood, N.J., honored with two AAGP awards for overall community excellence and superior leasing; Hyde Park in Bellmawr; Eastampton Apartments; Inverness in Westville; Woodlane Crossing in Burlington; and Nieuw Amsterdam in Marlton, all recognized for overall excellence by the AAGP. The following communities in South Jersey received AAGP Best in Living Awards: Chateau Ridge in Pine Hill and Fox Ridge in Hinella for leasing excellence, and Warwick Terrace in Somerdale for exceptional curb appeal.
"We are extremely proud of our award-winning staff," said Epstein.
"This recognition from peers reflects their commitment to high standards of excellence and testifies to the solid relationships they have built with our residents."
Nina Dino of Westminster Management received the 2002 Garden State Award for Regional Manager of the Year. Along with managing a number of other communities, Dino successfully oversees five apartment communities in North Jersey: General Greene Village, Duncan Hill Apartments, The Ambassador Apartments, Short Hills Village, and Constantine Village. Amy Gardiner was named Property Manager of the Year by the NJAA for her outstanding work at Woodview at Marlton.
Jeanne Bermudez also earned the NJAA's 2002 Garden State Award for Property Manager of the Year. Bermudez oversees two upscale rental communities in northern New Jersey: Curling Club in Hoboken and The River Club in Edgewater, which received the NJAA Award for Excellence in Curb Appeal. Dennis Moore, of The Colonials, a mid-rise complex in Cherry Hills, received the NJAA's Garden State Award for Leasing Consultant of the Year. His 188-unit property also earned the AAGP's Best in Living Award for leasing excellence.
According to Epstein, Kushner's property division employs an active, hands-on management style.
"Every time someone walks into one of our properties or calls for maintenance service on a Westminster apartment, we have the opportunity to show our concern for customer service and quality management," he said.
