Nurturing the natural leaders and encouraging those on the sidelines to become active stewards of their community creates meaning and improves quality of life.
Placemaking. Community happens where people gather. We influence program and design decisions, and we expertly care for community landscapes and amenities to create intentional connections and better experiences.
Shared Responsibility. True community is made by the people who live there. We work in collaboration with residents and stakeholders to help them cultivate a place that looks and lives well, and that is built to last and hold value.
Authentic Relationships. Strong social bonds are integral to community. We orchestrate opportunities and experiences for strong ties to form and deepen, expanding trust and improving well-being.
We are an innovative market leader providing community association management and developer services with an emphasis on intention and connection. We place equal emphasis on people and place, physical and social, operations and engagement.
We know that an authentic community is a reflection of the people who live there. Together, with our residents and stakeholders, we work in partnership to cultivate an enriched and purposeful community that grows in value over time.
We have deep and proud roots in real estate development that began as part of DMB Associates. Over the years, we pioneered the concepts and perfected the practices of our Community Life ModelTM, creating special places where people lead more fulfilling lives.

Community association management
Two community-building visionaries, Kretzmann and McKnight, introduced the concept of Asset Based Community Development back in the 1980s. It’s the idea that community development should be built from the inside out, and that starts by mapping the people, places, and programs that have been long rooted in the place.
At Cohere, we follow this same asset mapping methodology.
As the physical foundations are laid for a new community, local residents may have concerns about changes to the place they call home. It takes relationship building and authentic information sharing to lay a foundation of trust and respect between the developer and existing community members.
Great places don’t happen by accident. Great places are the result of a thoughtful vision that is cared for and nurtured as the community matures. Based on a long history of design excellence and a deep understanding of how communities evolve, Cohere is committed to preserving and enhancing the built environment of the communities it manages with the objective that each community gets better with time.
The Cohere team are master creators and connectors of people, places and everlasting memories that transform real estate to the forever fabric of our lives.
Cohere's unique approach to community building created a vibe and energy that attracted homebuyers and was well received by residents. They cemented Eastmark amongst the top best-selling and best-living communities in the nation. Given Cohere’s success with Eastmark, we have engaged at two of our new master planned communities to provide the community building. We really appreciate and value what Cohere brings to our projects.
Cohere has been a great partner in the management of our associations at McWhinney. While they are more than adept at traditional association management, the secret sauce lies in their unique ability to promote community engagement through creative events and programming.
Rarely do you meet a collaborator who shares the dream and then turns it into a reality. The Cohere Team does just that. From the early discovery of “localness” of place to the universals of enlightened community management, the Cohere team listens, explores, questions, and creates.
When executed well, a strong sense of Community is a significant competitive advantage in the master planned community business. But, when executed with thoughtful planning followed by intentional action, a sense of Community is the legacy of great development.
I’m a big believer in the community-building model that Cohere has perfected. Grounded in the full spirit of community and enriching people’s lives, this unique, collaborative approach was key in distinguishing and growing the value of communities developed by DMB Associates during my tenure there.
