Since acquiring Mono Hilltop Manor in 2019, Fairstead has undertaken a series of targeted
enhancements to this gated senior community. An as-needed refresh of the Fresno
property, which was built in 1982, included new finishes and LED fixtures; new (LTV)
flooring and energy-efficient appliances, and accessibility upgrades. Repairs to the facade
and community room were completed as well.
Fairstead serves as property manager for Mono Hilltop Manor, an essential factor if
the company is to fulfill its self-assumed duty to positively impact individual residents
and the community when/wherever opportunities present themselves. Such impacts
include establishing and maintaining a higher-than-expected standard of property
upkeep and responsiveness to resident concerns. For example, Fairstead improved
security and safety measures around the property including new cameras and fencing,
as well as resealing and restriping the parking lot.
Beyond that, Fairstead’s in-house social services team aims to establish regular communal
events and other life-assistance programming at this property, based on the residents’
particular needs. These likely involve issues closely connected to personal well-being,
including education, health, aging in place, food insecurity, and access to relevant local,
state, national government assistance programs.
As a condition of its acquisition, and following its national playbook, Fairstead secured a
long-term extension of Mono Hilltop Manor’s Section 8 protections.
