Community One Associates Changes Name to FirstService Residential
Name Change Part of North American Rebranding Effort Highlighting National Reach and Personalized Local Service
ATLANTA (June 27, 2013)
– The corporate headquarters of FirstService Residential has announced that its subsidiary, Community One Associates, has been renamed FirstService Residential. This name change is part of FirstService Residential’s national rebranding effort, which took effect on June 27, 2013.
FirstService Residential is the largest manager of residential communities in North America, overseeing more than 6,000 properties and over 1.5 million residential units.
The former Community One Associates, an established leader in the Georgia residential property management market, manages a client portfolio of more than 130 communities. It became a subsidiary of FirstService Residential in 2009.
“FirstService Residential shares our commitment to provide exceptional service to our managed associations, and deeply supports our efforts to add value and enhance the quality of life of every community and resident we serve,” said Matt Phillips, formerly CEO of Community One Associates and now president of FirstService Residential Georgia.
Added Tim O’Keefe, FirstService Residential’s Regional President-South, “An important differentiator for FirstService Residential is our unique blend of extensive corporate resources with the personal touch, local leadership and unparalleled market expertise of our individual property management companies.”
Phillips also noted that the rebranding to FirstService Residential signifies a change in company name only, and all day-to-day operations will remain “business as usual.” Current property management teams will remain in place to service their existing customers, with added benefits gained from access to an expanded core of resources, combined purchasing power and shared expertise and best practices.
