Marie PeaceVice President of Compliance
Marie’s multifamily career began in 1995 as a Community Manager in Central Virginia. By 1996, she completed a new community lease up before it even opened and soon after, was promoted to Director of Compliance. This role included implementing policies and procedures relating to tax credit housing, which lead Marie to obtain her Housing Credit Certified Professional certification and later, the Certified Credit Compliance Professional designation. Marie spent the next thirteen years working with A.J. Johnson Consulting Services completing asset management reviews, auditing files to determine compliance with LIHTC, HUD, HOME Funds, Rural Development and other state or local housing programs. She also conducted on site physical inspections to ensure properties were well maintained and in compliance with ADA requirements. Her role with A.J. Johnson Consulting included reviewing files to determine if households would be deemed eligible under Section 42 or other housing programs. In doing so she typically reviewed between 8,000 and 10,000 files annually. Marie is now back to her roots working as Vice President of Compliance and overseeing tax credit compliance for some of the same properties she managed over fifteen years ago.
