A Time for Celebration
Here at Morguard, December is a time to look back and reflect on the year. It is a time to look at what efforts were successful, what areas could be improved, and who is deserving of praise for their hard work. It is especially gratifying when praise comes from outside sources, as this indicates that the hard work is not going unappreciated.
A Time for Recognition
One of Morguard’s team members recently brought home the award for Leasing Professional of the Year at the Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) MAC Awards! Roomana Nazli, of Rideau Towers in Toronto was honored with this distinction for her tireless efforts this past year. Rideau Towers, a four-tower residential community, has more than 1,500 suites altogether and has managed to maintain a vacancy level of less than 1%! Roomana, in particular, goes above and beyond to make sure the residents feel welcome, supported, and cared about. She is a ubiquitous presence in the Rideau Towers community and is very involved in resident events.
Another member of the Morguard family was also nominated for this prestigious award and deserves a hand for her work. Mikala Demarchi of 160 Chapel in Ottawa has helped her apartment community to thrive. 160 Chapel hosts a large population of student residents due to its close proximity to the University of Ottawa. Despite this challenge, the property has a 100% occupancy rate!
We at Morguard owe so much to our superstar team members like Roomana and Mikala, and all those who help to make this company successful. It is always an honor to be recognized by industry leaders and peers. Morguard is a proud member of the FRPO, the largest group in Ontario that represents those who, in their words, “own, manage, build and finance, service and supply residential rental homes.”
One of Morguard’s own, Director of Asset Management Ruth Grabel, is a member of the Board of Directors of the FRPO. "We're proud of Roomana and Mikala and their dedication to providing residents with a positive rental experience at our Morguard communities," said Grabel. "Their hard work and positive attitudes have helped differentiate their properties as the place to call home in their respective communities."
