Please join us in welcoming Demetria Canty as the Director of Property Management.
Ms. Canty was a member of TRIP’s board of directors before resigning to take a job with the organization. Her calling is to help people through property management, which furthers TRIP’s mission to connect individuals and families with the resources and knowledge to live in desirable homes in vibrant communities.
Ms. Canty was born and raised in Troy and has worked in the property management field for more than 20 years. She helped people who struggle with mental health and substance abuse avoid losing their housing and coordinated eviction prevention efforts. She’s been an advocate for families who were facing homelessness and served as a mediator between tenants and property owners.
One of Ms. Canty’s proudest achievements is the work she did to turn around an 80-unit property in Troy by updating records, payments and certifications.
“I have continuously pushed myself to move up the ladder all while serving individuals and families in their need for safe, affordable, stable housing,” Ms. Canty says. “My life goal is to one day own and operate a women’s shelter. As a woman I feel it’s important to be empowered, uplifted and appreciated. I want to leave behind a legacy that will impact lives for generations to come.”
As the Director of Property Management, Ms. Canty negotiates leases for TRIP tenants, supervises rent collection and oversees the maintenance and upkeep of TRIP property. It is Ms. Canty’s job, along with her team, to keep our properties looking good and our tenants happy.
In her time off, Ms. Canty loves life’s simple joys: attending church, spending time with her family – including her fur baby, Santana – planting flowers and enjoying a cup of coffee on a relaxed Saturday morning. Ms. Canty has a talent for interior design and shopping.
We are delighted and grateful Ms. Canty has chosen to share her talents with TRIP.
