Conifer Wins International Award for Corporate & Social Responsibility

NH&RA member firm Conifer Realty, LLC was recently honored with the 2017 International Award for Corporate and Social Responsibility from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).  This year’s finalists covered both residential and commercial sectors, including submissions from the US, Canada and China. The Corporate and Social Responsibility category recognized exemplary corporate responsibility and contributions to the community that enhance the reputation of real estate management.

Conifer was recognized for its initiative and leadership in developing a brand-new, state-of-the-art homeless shelter in Rochester, NY, the House of Mercy. “For a city of our size, Rochester has the highest poverty rate in the United States, so when we first heard of Sister Grace’s story and the House of Mercy, in 2015, we knew we had to take action to provide our time, talent and treasure to an organization and an individual who had given her whole self to the needy in Rochester,” said Tim Fournier, Chairman and CEO at Conifer.
