TOBY PROGRAM

THE OUTSTANDING BUILDING OF THE YEAR 

WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? 

Retain Tenants - The #1 reason to enter the TOBY contest! Tenants are price conscious and rent is a primary factor when leasing space, but plenty of other issues influence their choice. How they feel about the property - quality and pride of place - counts for a lot. Tenants enjoy being in a building that is recognized as "one of the best." Just going for a TOBY means you're going for the gold - in more ways than one!

Property Recognition - Think your property could be the best in the industry? Get recognized for it! There are a variety of categories from which to choose to enter your property. 

Acknowledge Your Team - Pride of ownership and great performance should be recognized. If the management team on a project is the best, then show it! The process of entering builds teamwork and cooperation with service providers and employees who work every day to make a property stand out.

Accolades for Owners - Like everyone, owners and property management companies want to feel great about the business they are in. Nothing feels greater than being awarded the best in the business!
