Opportunity Knocks at Richdale...
Hi I’m Dan and I am a General Manager at a 600 unit plus community. Property management wasn’t something I grew up wanting to do or really knew much about. I had gone the educational route and used to be a substitute teacher focused on PE and Health classes. One day I decided to hang up the jump rope and put-away the whistle. I was excited to work in a more corporate environment without being stuck behind a desk all day. I started out as a Leasing Consultant and was very quickly promoted to Assistant Manager. Now that I have my own property, it’s as if I’m running my own business always making whatever decisions are necessary to ensure the success of our community. What do I love most? I get to work at a place where I have fun every day, interact with amazing people, and help people find a home.
Hi, I’m Mike. I started as a Security Guard at Richdale when I was 19 years old. It was my very first job and I didn’t quite know “what I would do when I grew up”. Richdale offered me an opportunity to join the Maintenance team as a Make-Ready Technician. Providing me with the tools I needed to grow, I started to earn certifications and within a few years I was the Lead Maintenance Technician at a property. Every day I am so lucky to get to work with such great people both on the Maintenance team as well as in the Leasing office. I love not being stuck in the office and getting to spend my days out and about in our wonderful properties and serving our residents.
Hi, I’m Lindsay and I’m a Leasing superstar. Once upon a time, I worked at a gourmet cupcake shop…and while the Red Velvet was amazing, it felt like simply a job and not a career. What excited me most about Richdale was the potential to grow. I had never been in real estate before, but they assured me that they would give me the tools I needed to be successful. After completing the Richdale U training course, I quickly leased my way to Senior Leasing Consultant. I have a lot of fun, (especially when I am winning,) with the sales contests and enjoy working with my new best friends. I was quickly promoted to a Senior Sales Associate. What I love most? I just moved into one of our communities and it’s the best! To be able to work where I live is a treat even sweeter than a cupcake.
Hi, I’m Ryan. After graduation, I was recruited by a large finance company which was at the time my dream job. I soon learned though that the name on the letterhead was the only thing that was exciting about my company. I used to down my double espresso just to stay awake through my long, endless days at the bank watching the clock go tick-tock as I calculated how many more hours till Friday. It was during a case of the “Mondays” seven years ago that I decided to seek bigger (and better) opportunities. I started out as a Resident Relations Customer Service Specialist and then was given the opportunity to manage the entire team. Next, I was put in charge of a new strategic business development division and have since been on the fast-track up the corporate ladder. Today, I oversee a large team and am responsible for business-to-business partnerships. I get to interface with senior management and make decisions that drive revenue and improve service to the resident customers nationwide.
