WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Marcia Bollinger, President of Apartment Finder, part of the industry leading Apartments.com network powered by CoStar, was recognized by the National Apartment Association (NAA) as the recipient of its 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Established in 2013, the award recognizes supplier partners and association leaders who have made significant strides in advancing advocacy for the apartment industry. Bollinger will accept her award on November 21 at the NAA Assembly of Delegates and Installation of Officers meeting in San Antonio.
Throughout her career, Bollinger has helped develop new tools and platforms to enhance lead generation; strengthen relationships between local apartment communities; and help millions of renters across the nation find apartments that fit their lifestyles and demands.
"Marcia is a pioneer in the multifamily world, and embodies CoStar Group's commitment to making our clients the center of everything we do," said Andrew Florance, CoStar Group Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "Her multifamily expertise and leadership has furthered our success in helping advertisers achieve the best, most relevant leads, while helping potential renters find their perfect homes."
Bollinger began working for Apartment Finder early in 2003. After CoStar Group acquired Network Communications, Inc. and its Apartment Finder business in June 2015, Apartment Finder now stands as one of the three powerful sites that make up CoStar Group's industry leading Apartments.com portfolio, which also includes Apartment Home Living. According to the most recent data from Amazon Alexa, the Apartments.com network is the most trafficked network.
"Receiving the National Apartment Association's Lifetime Achievement Award is truly an honor, and a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate the importance of the multifamily industry, which is growing fast for both owners/property managers and renters," said Bollinger. "Across our team, we move quickly, because we understand our customers' needs and put them first. We are passionate about enhancing the renter's experience and delivering qualified leads to apartment communities."
Prior to receiving the NAA Lifetime Achievement Award, Bollinger has also been recognized for her efforts on behalf of the multifamily industry on local, state and national levels. She won the NAA's 2003 Paragon Award; helped to create and develop the curriculum for the now-established Certified Apartment Supplier (CAS) designation; was the first recipient of the NAA's Victor Award in 1995; and served as the Chairman of the National Suppliers Council.
