MMHA Member Awards showcase the best
in manufactured homes and communities in Michigan

The Michigan Manufactured Housing Association (MMHA) presented the annual Member Awards, which showcase the professionalism, integrity and appreciation manufactured home community owners and operators have for their communities, homes and residents.

“The manufactured housing industry in Michigan experienced a great year in 2017,” said Josh Schnakenberg, divisional vice president Sun Communities and MMHA board of directors member. “The communities that won were chosen by their peers and are excellent representatives of manufactured home communities across the state.”

Awards were presented for best community entrance, best community event or activity, best model home staging, best member website, best member advertisement and best community manager. The winners in those categories were:
