Our unique community-building model focuses on three essential elements:

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.

Our Approach

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.

Kyle Harris

Vice President, Community Development; Baseline General Manage, McWhinney

Quotation

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.

Brad Chelton

President, Texas I Land & Housing Development, Brookfield Properties Development

Quotation

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.

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.

Sandra Kulli

Owner, Kulli Marketing

Quotation

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.
