We are proud to announce that John Scarpaci, one of the property managers here at Thayer & Associates, has been awarded Community Associations Manager of the Year by the Community Associations Institute (CAI) New England Chapter.
Meet John Scarpaci – Property Manager with Thayer & Associates
John Scarpaci began his career in property management in the early 90s. Since then, John has developed a passion for serving the community under his care. With property management, John is happy with his ability to get outside and stay directly involved with all aspects of the property and the community within.
“I started [my career] around the Tufts University area,” John explained. “I more or less handled rentals for college kids. It was a bunch of three-story buildings all around Tufts University. I like to be outside and involved.”
John’s Current Property – Bishop Forest Condominiums in Waltham, MA
Currently, John is on the ground performing his property management duties for the Bishop Forest Condominiums in Waltham, MA. The property is made up of 216 townhouse units across 70-acres of developed land.
There, John has served the community, the property, and the condo board of trustees diligently. John works with all parties involved to ensure streamlined communication, property upkeep, and to ensure that the community receives the best possible services.
For example, John worked closely with local government officials and the condo board to bring free trash pickup to the Bishop Forest Condominiums. This isn’t a benefit typically offered for condominiums in Massachusetts. But through consistent and respectful communication efforts, John was able to make it happen – greatly benefiting his community.
How Does John Represent Thayer & Associates Property Management?
For anyone who speaks with John, it’s apparent that property management is a true passion. Scarpaci leverages his professional expertise alongside his discussions with property stakeholders to come to solutions that work best for everyone involved. John goes above and beyond wherever he can to ensure positive outcomes.
For this reason, it’s clear to see why John Scarpaci was selected as Community Associations Manager of the Year.
What Is The Community Associations Institute?
According to the Community Associations Institute New England Chapter:
“Community Associations Institute (CAI) and the New England Chapter (CAI-NE) have been the leaders in providing proven education and resources for community associations in the chapter states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.”
What Is The Community Associations Manager of the Year Award?
Each year, the CAI-NE awards a special recognition for a property manager that goes above and beyond for their managed properties. This year, John Scarpaci was nominated and recognized as Community Associations Manager of the Year by his peers.
Upon finding out about this special recognition, John explains that he was “shocked at first” and honored by all the kind words and write-ups that he has received so far.
“I’ve been working property management all these years, “ John explained, “and you think, wow, someone’s really going to say ‘hey John, thank you. Thank you for what you’ve done.’ – It really means a lot – [someone saying] ‘you didn’t have to. You could have gone home.’ But it all paid off. Achieving property manager of the year is incredible.”
We agree, John. It’s well deserved! Thank you for being part of our team here at Thayer & Associates, Inc and for everything you do daily.
The CAI-NE will formally announce John as the Community Associations Manager of the Year at the annual chapter dinner and awards night on Thursday, May 19th, at the Westin Hotel Waltham.
