Six years in the hospitality industry gave me a foundation. Residential property management (RPM) gave me a future.
You could say I was driven to RPM. I was working 12-hour days selling cars, and I knew it wasn’t the long-term career choice I was looking for. When I became a new mother, I also needed a new career with flexibility.
As a student at The University of Texas, I switched my major from education to real estate finance — but my RPM story is still all about learning. In fact, my commitment to education is why I decided to become an RPM Careers ambassador.
My residential property management (RPM) story started a bit earlier than most: My mother was a property manager and my father owned an industry vendor company, so you could say I was born into it! With family ties giving me such a strong connection to the industry, it’s no wonder that I’m now an RPM Careers ambassador.
Whether it’s through digital advertising, the new RPM Careers Facebook page, or word of mouth from National Apartment Association members and supporters, thousands of applicants are headed to RPMcareers.org to find their new career path. They are also connecting with RPM Careers ambassadors — industry professionals like me — to learn more about residential property management.
