Liv Avenida Team Wins 2 Top Honors At AMA Tribute Awards


Liv Avenida and IPA Management are celebrating after two key team members were honored at the 2013 Tribute Awards hosted by the Arizona Mulithousing Association.

Heidi Arave, was honored as Apartment Manager of the Year (200+ units) and Bill Kunce was awarded Maintenance Supervisor of the Year (200+ units).

The 2013 Tribute Awards featured more than 471 nominees from 26 management companies. Awards were determined by 122 judges and presented in 22 categories. IPA was also one of three finalists for Developer of the Year for its work in developing Liv Avenida.

“We are very proud of both Heidi and Bill,” said IPA partner, Bill Fettis. “They are talented leaders who put their hearts into creating remarkable communities for our residents. To have the AMA recognize both of our leaders at Liv Avenida is a humbling acknowledgement that the Liv team is successfully pioneering a fresh approach to multifamily living.”

Kunce has been with IPA for more than 16 years and has led many successful maintenance teams in the IPA portfolio during his tenure. Arave joined IPA in 2009, and brings professionalism, enthusiasm, and significant multifamily experience to her role.

Liv Avenida opened in November 2012, and completed the final development phase in May 2013. The community features a distinctive range of amenities and services that focus on community, wellness, technology, and sustainability. Liv Avenida is located on Arizona Avenue just south of Queen Creek in Chandler.

IPA continues to expand its Phoenix portfolio with three premium multifamily communities and a senior living community under development. Liv Northgate is being developed in Gilbert in partnership with the Rockefeller Group and will offer 402 apartment homes.

Liv North Scottsdale is a 240-unit, urban-infill podium development at the hub of North Scottsdale’s trendiest shopping, dining, and nightlife developed in conjunction with PB Bell.
