Earning a TOBY Award is a tremendous accomplishment. It recognizes excellence in property management, helps foster teamwork and sets the property apart from competition. The application process and work it takes to win a TOBY are tough, but the rewards more than outweigh the challenges. 

Learn tips and best practices from the BOMA International Awards Committee so that you can prepare for the 2021 TOBY season. The Awards Committee made several changes to the TOBY guidelines to make navigating TOBY during the COVID restrictions much easier and safer. 

Register for the Webinar to find out what those are as well as get answers to all your questions. Please click the link to register:



Retain Tenants - The #1 reason to enter the TOBY contest! Tenants are price conscious and rent is a primary factor when leasing space, but plenty of other issues influence their choice. How they feel about the property - quality and pride of place - counts for a lot. Tenants enjoy being in a building that is recognized as "one of the best." Just going for a TOBY means you're going for the gold - in more ways than one!

Property Recognition - Think your property could be the best in the industry? Get recognized for it! There are a variety of categories from which to choose to enter your property. 

Acknowledge Your Team - Pride of ownership and great performance should be recognized. If the management team on a project is the best, then show it! The process of entering builds teamwork and cooperation with service providers and employees who work every day to make a property stand out.

Accolades for Owners - Like everyone, owners and property management companies want to feel great about the business they are in. Nothing feels greater than being awarded the best in the business!
