Budgeting for 21st Century
I remember when I first started in the property management industry over 25years ago. Things were so different then. The basic concept of “getting the money in the bank” and keeping the residents happy seemed to be the only real challenges. There were no budgets to speak of, or they were just basic “guidelines” that the company or owner gave you to follow.

Career Blue Prints Changed
As with many individuals in the multifamily industry, I too started out "on site" as a leasing consultant. In those days just having a "friendly, outgoing personality" seemed to be the key to being successful. Listening to the customers and helping them with their housing concerns was an easy task and career advancements were sometimes more "being in the right place at the right time" than actual promotions.

In It To Win It
Training, training, and MORE training. Seems we as an industry have finally gotten back to the idea that training is a huge part of a company’s success.

Jackie,

I wanted to take a moment of your time to thank you for a wonderful and very informative day. You know the call, the one you get from your boss saying, "I think this would be a great seminar for you to go to", and you smile in to the phone and say "Oh I agree, I think it will be a terrific learning opportunity" then you hang up the phone and groan and think to yourself, doesn't she think I have enough to do without going to a seminar to listen to someone tell me what I already know I should do but never seem to have the time to do. I am so glad she did because I had not only a terrific time, but I learned things, and I learned things that I can make time to do. Thank you for a great day. I truly believe I left your seminar with an incredible amount of knowledge. Good luck in the future and trust me, I will be at the next one you do for the Apartment Association of Greater Knoxville.

Jackie,
I just wanted say thank you for the speech at the Hotel on Feb. 09, 2010 for the Irvine Company. I was impressed of the knowledge, energy and always a big smile on your face at all times, you created a positive impact on every one. I always wanted to meet someone like you because you are one of us and I am so proud for all your success. I will make this comment, I hope you do not take it the wrong way but here it is; "When I get older I will love to get the energy and knowledge you have!" My favorite topic is, To Be Proactive, that is what I will take the most from you.
Thank you very much for all your time.
