I have been managing apartments and properties for the past 20 years.
I have been with the same multi-family property for many of those years.
I started laboring here as the assistant director and suddenly moved into the management position. The supplier gave me a regional director position, but I had to refuse. I knew that would mean constant traveling and 12-hour mornings. With many small youngsters at home, that is never a recipe for success. Things have been stressed enough lately, with the remodeling of our main office. All of us started the remodeling process in May. The supplier inspected the roof, walls, and exterior windows first, but now the two of us have to close down the office for a whole month so they can make upgrades to the inside of the building. All of us are getting brand modern carpet, furniture, desks, and computers. All of us are also getting a modern HVAC equipment for the office. I am most gleeful about the HVAC unit, because the indoor air quality has been exhausting for years. I have complained about the HVAC equipment on many unusual occasions. My boss and the owner of the supplier has kept me on the hook, promising a sizable office remodel. Now the time is finally here and I could not be more excited. When the office reopens next week, it’s going to look and feel great. I helped pick out the furniture, which nicely matches the carpet and drapes. All of us got modern speakers in the ceiling and more air vents too. I also had a hand in choosing our modern office desks. All of our employees should be satisfied with the changes.
