“We are honored to receive this award for the 5th consecutive year,” said Kevin Hammett, President and CEO of Regency Properties. “This accomplishment is very important for us because it demonstrates our continued commitment to maintaining an industry-leading level of tenant satisfaction.”

Each year, CEL conducts more than 2.5 million tenant surveys to measure performance of commercial properties throughout the country. Survey questions evaluate the retail leasing and property management relationship and the overall quality of services, including: maintenance, readiness and responsiveness to solve problems, property condition and lease renewal intention. Survey respondents rated Regency’s services and property staff as “Outstanding” among their class.

“We are pleased to, once again, congratulate the entire team at Regency Properties for earning this distinction. Regency Properties’ commitment to excellence in customer service reflects the efforts of the entire organization.”  said Christopher E. Lee, president and CEO of CEL & Associates, Inc.
