Our Story

Who Are We?

We're a leading property management company with over 25 years of experience in multi-family, assisted living, and mixed-use properties. Our expertise is in the acquisition, development, and/or management of affordable, conventional and mixed-income housing. Clients choose HallKeen to expertly manage lease-ups, new construction, tax credit conversions, stabilized properties and more.

Our corporate office is located just 25 miles south of Boston in Norwood, MA.

What's Our Story?

In early 1991 three leading Boston area real estate professionals, Mr. John Hall, the late Mr. Robert Kuehn and Mr. Denison Hall formed a joint venture to acquire McNeil Management Inc., a company with over 20 years of experience managing affordable housing. HallKeen built upon the McNeil base in the 1990’s and has now established a strong reputation for effectively managing and responsibly owning affordable housing and commercial real estate.

Both the owners of the properties and the regulators who oversee the company's work agree that HallKeen Management has demonstrated an outstanding ability to deliver property management services. These services include, site management, preventive maintenance, rent collection, lease enforcement, compliance, financial management, and marketing services. In addition, we pride ourselves in understanding the physical needs of the properties we manage and provide plans and oversight to improve them.

HallKeen’s acquisition and development focus has covered a broad spectrum of affordable housing in New England, ranging from the fee purchase of Class B market rate properties, to inner City Section 8 properties, and to developing mixed income housing from the ground up. Our particular expertise has been to utilize current financing and tax credit programs to stabilize and revitalize individual properties and neighborhoods. HallKeen emphasizes that our properties are an integral part of a larger community - the neighborhood, town or city. As a result, we seek to play a leadership role in the communities where we work.

HallKeen’s current portfolio includes over 9,000 apartments spanning throughout New England, New York, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Maryland and six Assisted Living communities. While retaining prime focus on affordable housing, HallKeen manages a diverse portfolio of residential housing, mixed-use properties and assisted living communities.

HallKeen is staffed by a group of dedicated, experienced, and highly motivated individuals. There are 50+ employees working at the central office in Norwood, and more than 700 employees working at the various sites. Andrew P. Burnes, President, guides and runs the day-to-day affairs of the company.

Through its wide range of in-house resources and team-management style, HallKeen delivers: Be it hands-on website design, juggling mechanical site issues or prompt-efficient reporting...a terrific partner to have as your Management Agent.

Jacqui Fitzgerald / Vice President, First Financial Management Corporation

I have been living at Midway Studios for over 10 years. The staff are always very helpful. I really can't say enough good things about [the office staff], and the maintenance staff are great, as well. I can't tell you how many times I've seen [them] here working overtime to fix a problem. Always smiling, always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. HallKeen in general has been a great management company that represents and runs this building well, in my opinion.

The Wamsutta Apartment project has dramatically increased the opportunity for residents to obtain affordable housing within our community. It has been my pleasure to work with the Department of Housing and Community Development, who assisted in securing low-income tax-credits and home financing for this project, and I commend HallKeen for its efforts toward improving the housing situation in New Bedford.

You couldn't ask for a better place to live! The office and maintenance staff are professional, courteous and very nice to work with. The building and grounds are well maintained. A lovely place to call home!

One of the best decisions we made as part of our successful organizational turnaround was hiring HallKeen to manage our affordable housing developments. The payoff financially and in terms of services to our properties and tenants was immediate. In this way HallKeen has been a key partner in our reemergence as a strong and effective regional housing organization.

Carl Nagy-Koechlin / Executive Director of South Shore Housing

One of the main things we enjoy is the diversity of the tenants- also, our kids are grown and gone; we love to see the smiling kids playing in our building.

It makes the decision to fund a project like this [Wamsutta Apartments] much easier when you can count on the resolve of the neighborhood residents, the support of the city and state government, and the commitment of responsible property owners like HallKeen.

Clark L. Ziegler / Executive Director of the Massachusetts Housing Partnership Fund

Love love love the staff. They are very attentive and personable.

Resident at Ten05 / Charlotte, NC

Although we brought The Lofts at Perkins Park on line during an extremely challenging economic period (Fall, 2009), HallKeen was instrumental in making this project a success. The combination of equally talented and highly professional marketing and property management groups allowed us to achieve stabilization ahead of schedule and then maintain a high occupancy level – well done!

Ed Walsh and Bob Delhome / Mira Development, LLC

I just received a glowing letter from a resident at Ships’ Cove. I find it interesting that he cites all the positive changes made in 2010 as the start of the turnaround at the property. That coincides with our change to HallKeen. Keep up the great work.

Fred C. Mitchell / Vice President - Asset Management, The NHP Foundation

We have had a terrific experience working with HallKeen Management. They understand the complexities of managing a subsidzed portfolio, not just from their own perspective, but also from the perspective of the low-income tenants that we work together to house.

Gregory P. Russ / Executive Director, Cambridge Housing Authority

MHIC appreciates HallKeen's continued dedication to building a community in which residents, neighbors, community leaders, investors and lenders can take pride.

Joseph Flatley / President and CEO of the Massachusetts Housing Investment Corporation

Hiring HallKeen Management to manage The Regency has been a thoroughly positive experience. Their attention to every detail, vast knowledge of marketing and management, long-standing reputation, and their passion for revitalizing neighborhoods- made it an easy choice when considering candidates to manage our high-end mixed-income property. From pre-development to current lease-up, working with HallKeen has been rewarding and I would recommend their services to potential owners and developers.

Patrick Lee / Principal, Trinity Financial

The parking lot was kept clear of snow during all our snow storms. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to live here.
