In a move that illustrates its effectiveness as a luxury multi-family manager with universal appeal, Mark-Taylor Residential was named manager of three hip, trendy urban communities for third-party developers in the central Phoenix area.

Luxury metropolitan communities Domus (4445 North 36th Street), Level at Sixteenth (1550 E. Campbell Avenue) and the under construction @51 community (5251 N. 16th St) are now part of the company’s growing management portfolio. All communities are infill and/or renovated projects within a five-mile radius in the Central Phoenix/ Camelback corridor, offering residents gorgeous options that are unique in the Mark-Taylor portfolio with distinctive layouts and design. The communities add more than 800 units to the company’s growing management portfolio.

“We regularly hear from residents, and prospective residents, that they’re only interested in Mark-Taylor communities because of our reputation for quality and customer service,” said Mark-Taylor Residential President Dale Phillips. ‘Now, we can offer our signature experience to residents who want the urban, uptown Phoenix and Arcadia area lifestyle.”

All three properties are within walking and bicycling distance of unique shopping boutiques, locally owned restaurants and the historic Arizona Biltmore Resort and Shopping Center. They are an ideal location for professionals commuting to downtown Phoenix or the Esplanade area, with public transit and freeway access to any corner of the metropolitan area. Both Domus and @51 were developed by Chicago-based Smithfield Properties.

Mark-Taylor properties benefit from universal marketing efforts that the company offers at all of its communities, such as residential contests and events, charitable fundraisers and networking opportunities. This approach, as well as the company’s uniform, polished management, service and maintenance practices, resonate with not only asset owners seeking strong ROI, but also selective residents who seek out Mark-Taylor properties and employees who want to be part of the Mark-Taylor culture.

To help staff these new properties and others coming online, Mark-Taylor is actively recruiting professionals in service, leasing and management. All new hires will be automatically enrolled in Mark-Taylor University, the company’s state-of-the-art training program that offers customized courses and programs to help employees move up the career ladder.

According to employee review sites like, Mark-Taylor’s workplace culture is enviable: “It’s a family-like feel. The company is very supportive of your career. I’ve made lifelong friends through this company. Ethical and Fun environment. The fact that even as a new employee the upper management met me and remembered my name was amazing. It made me feel important and I knew immediately they cared about me as an employee. I don’t know many companies where as a brand new employee you interact with the President and Vice President and they make it a point to know you by name. It’s a great feeling.”
