To ensure the 2006 NMHC 50 is as complete and accurate as possible, NMHC staff gathered names of apartment owners and managers from a wide range of sources. A senior officer from each firm was contacted for the information included in the rankings, which are for properties owned or managed on January 1, 2006. Although membership in the National Multi Housing Council is not required for inclusion in the survey, 87 percent of the firms appearing in this year’s rankings are NMHC members. NMHC expresses appreciation to the industry leaders for their participation in this annual effort. The NMHC 50 was compiled and analyzed by NMHC staff members Mark Obrinsky and Rich Levy under the leadership of NMHC President Doug Bibby. In addition to the NMHC 50 rankings and analysis of the results, this section includes a listing of the officers and members of the National Multi Housing Council. NMHC staff biographies round out the section.
