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 Maria and I am a Leasing Professional. Prior to joining the Richdale Team, I actually worked for a cemetery. You might say there was not a lot of one-on-one interaction at my job. One day, I became dead-set on leaving the funeral industry and becoming a Leasing Professional was a perfect transition. I love that my position has such variety and that I get to meet new people on a daily basis. Our residents are such a pleasure to get to know and I love to hear how their apartment home has brought them happiness. My favorite part of the position is that I get to work in such a beautiful setting. Rather than sitting behind a desk all day, I conduct property tours around luxurious swimming pools and fabulously decorated models. Not a bad way to spend the day, right?
My name is Caryn and I’m a Senior Property Manager. Prior to joining the Richdale Team I was in Restaurant Management for an upscale steakhouse. Eventually I decided to “steak” out a new profession and discovered leasing. Leasing was the perfect marriage of sales and customer service and it allowed me to work in a fast-paced environment without having a serving tray attached to my hand and food spilled all over my clothes. Pretty soon I was promoted to General Manager of one of our luxury properties and in my five years, I have continued to get promoted and take on additional responsibilities. What I love most about my position is that we are a family owned company and I have lots of interaction with our owners. I really get to see how much they not only care about the properties, but also their associates.
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.
