Their 'flagship' property is NorthBridge Apartments. Take a look at: http://northbridgesucks.blogspot.com or http://concordsucks.blogspot.com for a LOT of negative information on them. In short my opinion is that Concord sucks at all their 140 properties in 7 states.
From my own experience for over 5 years at a Florida property I know that CONCORD has very poor management and maintenance. There is a lot of turnover and positions remain vacant for months at a time.
Concord Management, LTD (Main Office)
Atlanta, GA 30309
4 firms are working together to put up low income housing, here is the info from their own web site. And of course they bring in American Utility Management for most of their properties, so you get screwed by both Concord and AUM.
Our Development Team http://www.atlantichousing.com/ourteam.html
Atlantic Housing is the commonly used brand name for our family of companies working in a cooperative effort to develop quality multi-family communities and maintain them in a sustainable environment that enhances the quality of life for the privileged residents. The members of our team include Atlantic Housing Partners, Global Realty, CPG Construction, and Concord Management.
Atlantic Housing Partners Our unique team brings a broad spectrum of specialized expertise to each community we develop. Accountants, lawyers, contractors, engineers and architects: our professional skill sets make us experts in managing every aspect of development.
Global Realty One of the keys to developing quality, affordable communities is identifying undeveloped sites that require real estate expertise to maximize the full potential of the property. Global Realty works diligently through the acquisition, negotiation, feasibility and closing process to make sure a property can reach its highest and best use. The benefit to the local government is an enhanced tax base, and the benefit to local residents is the provision of high-quality housing that is priced within reach.
CPG Construction The mark of a great construction company is a commitment to quality. It's about exceeding code requirements. It's about building structures that are meant to last and age gracefully. It's about completing work quickly and efficiently to have a minimum impact on the environment during construction. It's about leaving behind a community the raises the quality of life for those who live within it and nearby. That's the mark of CPG Construction - quality construction, on time, on budget.

American Utility Management
Who is AUM? AUM is a third-party billing provider who has contracted with various condos and apartment complexes, including Concord, to provide utililty billing services. It is a totally inept and badly managed utility billing firm in Oak Brook, Illinois. To my own knowledge they simply 'make up' bills, it happened to me and others also report this fradulent activity. If you live at a Concord property then you are probably being ripped off by AUM.
For details see: http://aumsucks.blogspot.com
If you are interested in just how AUM and Concord Management join together to rip off renters at their apartment complexes then you will want to take a look at what happened at Stone Harbor, 501 Alf Coleman Road, Panama City Beach, FL 32407.
The situation in Panama City Beach was so bad that the City of PCB pushed through legislation to forbit this sort of fraud. Don't take my word, look it up for yourself at: http://stoneharborsucks.blogspot.com/

(Apartment Reviews net) IS HELPING…
CONCORD MANAGEMENT LTD, HIDE THE FACT THAT MOST OF THEIR APARTMENTS ARE FULL OF BEDBUGS AND ROACHES. THEY ARE HELPING CONCORD MANAGEMENT PUT FAMILIES IN HOMES NOT FIT FOR A DOG. (Apartment Reviews net) TOOK DOWN ALL OR ALMOST ALL, OF THE BAD VIEWS FROM VERY UNSATISFIED TENANTS, WHO WERE TRYING TO WARN OTHER PROSPECTIVE TENANTS ABOUT CONCORD MANAGEMENT LTD, HEALTH HAZARDOUS APARTMENT HOMES, THAT THEY HAVE BEEN SKILLFULLY DECEIVING PEOPLE INTO LEASING. NOW THEY WILL NOT ALLOW NEW BAD REVIEWS TO BE POSTED. HOWEVER, (Apartment Reviews net} DID ALLOW THEMSELVES TO GIVE CONCORD MANAGEMENT LTD APARTMENTS A SCORE OF 70% OR MORE ON MOST OF THEIR APARTMENTS. THAT WOULD BE THE PERFECT SCORE TO FOOL A PROSPECTIVE TENANT INTO THINKING THEY ARE GOING TO A GREAT APARTMENT COMPLEX, NOT KNOWING THEY ARE BEING SET UP.
St. Lucie Place Apts in Stuart FL, was sited and aWarning Issued 05/04/2012 and 07/06/2012 by the State of Florida Professional Business Regulation, for ROACHES!!
MOST OF CONCORD MANAGEMENT LTD 139 APARTMENTS ARE INFESTED WITH SEVERAL OF THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS, RATS, ROACHES, BEDBUGS, CRIME, DRUG DEALERS, GANG VIOLENCE, TRASH PILES, MOLD OR AN INCOMPETENT STAFF.
(Based on apartment review websites)
I guess this is why they have to trick people into signing a lease with them!!!
THEIR BEST TRICK IS TO HOLD UP YOUR PAPER WORK SO THEY'LL HAVE TO SHOW YOU YOUR APT AT NIGHT. YOU WILL NOT SEE THE ROACHES THAT NIGHT ANYWAY, BECAUSE THEY WILL SPRAY THE DAY YOU COME IN TO SIGN THE LEASE. THAT WILL HOLD THE ROACHES BACK LONG ENOUGH FOR YOU TO BE FOOLED. OR, THEY WILL SWITCH APARTMENT ON YOU AT THE LAST MINUTE. YOU WILL THINK YOU ARE GETTING A GOOD SAFE HOME FOR YOUR FAMILY. BY THE WAY, AT NIGHT YOU CAN'T SEE THE ROACH DROPPINGS IN CLUSTERS IN THE KITCHEN EITHER, SO BRING YOUR FLASH LIGHT.

For anyone looking to move to any apartment community in Atlanta, do not move to any apartment community that is owned by Concord Management. I recently moved from one of their communities and they have the worst customer service I have ever seen.
The Manager at the complex never leaves her office so she never wants to talk to the residents and her boss is no better. Whenever you call the corporate office, the person that answers the phone down there is rude too. Lately they have had a new person answering the phone sometimes and she doesn't appear to be as rude, but everyone else down there doesn't know the meaning of good customer service. If the people at the complex are rude, you expect the corporate office to be better. They aren't. So I suggest, if you apply for an apartment make sure it is not managed by Concord Management.
