Evergreen Real Estate Group promotes Mary Mauney

Evergreen Real Estate Group has promoted Mary Mauney from regional supervisor to vice president of property management. In this role, Mauney will work alongside recently hired executive vice president John Kennedy in managing the day-to-day operation of the firm’s 8,000-unit portfolio.

In addition, Mauney will continue to leverage her extensive experience working with state and federal agencies to secure tax credits needed to finance new developments. She also will ensure individual communities meet various reporting requirements in order to maintain their affordable status.

“Mary has 30 years of experience in affordable housing and has been an integral part of our company for the past five years, contributing to the enormous growth we’ve experienced as we continue to enter new markets and increase market share,” said Steve Rappin, president of Evergreen Real Estate Group. “This is a well-deserved promotion for her and a testament to her commitment to ensuring each Evergreen community operates at its highest possible level. Mary also is a great example of an Evergreen employee with heart — her compassion for the residents who call our communities home exemplifies our broader corporate mission of serving individuals and families whose needs go beyond four walls and a roof.”

Before joining Evergreen, Mauney worked as a regional property manager for two multifamily companies in Atlanta from 1986 to 2003, which focused on rural housing, Section 8 and low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) funding. In 2003, she joined National Housing Compliance in Atlanta, which is the performance-based contract administrator in the state of Georgia, where she served as senior asset manager. This led her to become director of the company’s Illinois field office in 2004, where she completed management and occupancy reviews and followed up on Real Estate Assessment Center inspections and tenant concerns for over 400 HUD Section 8 properties in the state of Illinois. Mauney joined Evergreen in 2013, most recently serving as regional supervisor. In this role, she managed Evergreen’s third-party management contracts while maintaining a portfolio of eight to 10 properties.

Mauney earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology/biology from Oberlin College. In addition, she is a certified property manager through the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) and holds an Illinois real estate broker’s license. Outside of her role at Evergreen, Mauney serves on the board of the Housing Commission in Oak Park, IL, and has volunteered for years for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
