With his diligence and attention to details, Miguel gained invaluable, hands on experience and consistently scored above 95% in the most stringent of reviews and audits. In 2007 Miguel joined Housing Trust of America as a consultant in Maryland. Miguel became HTA’s management envoy as he traveled to various properties in the portfolio to organize and train office staff as well as to coordinate with maintenance staff to move sites into stringent company standards and boosting leasing to 95% occupancy, across the portfolio. Once completed Miguel moved on to a HTA property in Georgia. Here he prepared the 356 units for REAC Inspection which included coordinating with maintenance staff, office staff and residents to complete a successful and rare score of 99% on the REAC physical inspection. As a consultant Miguel Velez has worked with many companies to help organize, train and improve their multi-family holdings.
