Some would argue its Thanksgiving, others would say it’s Christmas. There is no wrong answer when debating what the best day of the year is. However if you ask a resident of Massachusetts they might have an outside-the-box answer, Patriot’s Day.

Known around the Commonwealth as simply “Marathon Monday”, Patriot’s Day is a celebration of the opening battle of the American Revolution that took place at the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Since 1897, the famed Boston Marathon has been run on Patriots Day each year. Tens of thousands of runners embark on the 26.2 miles journey from Hopkinton to Copley Square, and millions more line the streets and take to the bars along the way. The spirit has never been stronger on this day. With the tragic events of the Boston Marathon in 2013, the importance and legacy of the Marathon have only grown.

This year’s event shall not be outdone. Weather is expected to be mostly sunny with a small chance of showers later in the afternoon, but that shouldn’t dampen spirits. We wanted to include a background guide to the race, with a mile-by-mile analysis. Click here to read CBS Boston’s official guide to the Marathon.

Whether you’re cheering on the thousands of brave athletes from around the world, or enjoying the festivities from your favorite restaurant patio or deck, it should be a day that all should enjoy! #BostonStrong

TWO Corcoran Communities Featured in MFE's Top 5 Massachusetts Rankings!

Corcoran Management Company is honored to announce that 50 West Broadway in South Boston, and The Ledges in Weymouth were each recognized as Top 5 “Properties in Online Reputation in Massachusetts” in 2014 by National Multifamily Executive, a leader in multifamily news and analysis. Of all of the apartment communities in the state of Massachusetts rated for resident satisfaction on social media sites, 50 West Broadway finished 2nd, while The Ledges came in 4th, a tremendous accomplishment by both communities! On a 0-100 scale, the national average is a 52, both 50WB and The Ledges scored just a tick under 90.

These amazing results would not be obtainable without our dedicated staff members and the fabulous residents they serve.  We thank you all!

A resident’s voice is the most important voice in your apartment community. That statement rings true before, during, and even after a resident has lived at your community. In today’s mobile-driven scene, review websites and customer feedback are integral parts in a business’ success. This is not just exclusive to the multifamily industry. Review sites such as Yelp, FourSquare, GrubHub, and others control the voice of the audience, and that audience dictates what the public will think of any business.

Since 1951, Corcoran Management has always strived to provide the best experience for residents and their friends and families. Over the last few years we have expanded our outreach and commitment to resident satisfaction as it is conveyed in social…..and the results have clearly shown!
