Mark-Taylor honored with two awards from the Arizona Multihousing Association


Mark-Taylor received two generous accolades from the Arizona Multihousing Association (AMA) at the 2021 Tribute Awards. Annually, the Tribute Awards honor and celebrate multifamily professionals and communities for their outstanding performance in Arizona. 

The Local, a brand-new luxury Mark-Taylor community in Tempe, was awarded Best Community Team (2013-2020) for exceptional property management and resident service. Ashley Tran, Managing Director at Mark-Taylor, was also honored as Property Supervisor of the Year for her second time. 

The Local is a newly built community that opened in May 2019. Its building is situated by Arizona State University and conveniently houses a full-size Whole Foods Market on its first level. Complete with a clean, modern style and upscale amenities, it is a thriving Tempe living destination.  

The community team at The Local managed the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with grace, adjusting to provide exceptional service with enhanced safety and cleaning guidelines. The hard work and dedication of The Local’s management, leasing, and service teams earned this achievement. 

Ashley Tran, Managing Director, joined Mark-Taylor more than 13 years ago as a Leasing Consultant. Her excellent leadership skills and work ethic propelled her career through numerous high-level roles. Ashley’s passion for the multifamily industry comes from enjoying the everyday interactions with people, from residents and guests to her teams. Her recognition as Property Supervisor of the Year is well-deserved recognition of her positive impact on Mark-Taylor and our local communities.
