Molly Crawford is a graduate of The University of Southern Mississippi where she received her Master of Science Degree in Public Relations. Molly has over a decade of experience in property management, including multi-family housing, student housing, and senior housing. Molly started in the industry right out of college and has served in various roles on the property and corporate levels, including sales, marketing, accounting, public relations, and operations. Before joining The Claiborne, Molly worked as Director of Property Management (DPM) for a private real estate investment company that managed more than 40,000 student and multi-family housing beds across the United States. As DPM, Molly was responsible for leading the company’s day to day objectives and working with all community teams to meet occupancy and revenue goals.

Molly’s strength has been working specifically with distressed properties to turn around occupancy, reputation, and increasing NOI. In 2013, her community was voted Best Turnaround Property by the Student Housing Business Innovator Awards, where she leased a 600-bed community in Mississippi from 16% to 95% within 3 months of joining the company. Molly’s experience and success has also included complete rebranding and renovations of over 3000 beds within large university markets.

Before recently moving to Asset Manager, Molly served for over two years as a Regional Director of Operations for The Claiborne, providing leadership to the onsite communities to live out the company’s mission and values, as well as coordinate day to day operations of her assigned portfolio. As Asset Manager, Molly is responsible for managing the portfolio assets with a focus of increasing value, minimizing risks, and maximizing growth.
