When it comes to housing, Americans are placing greater value on walkability, urban revival, and work-life balance. More are looking beyond the traditional single-family house, and almost 1.1 million households chose apartment living over the past four years.
When the economy took a dive in 2008, so did the real estate industry. That was the catalyst I needed to leave my job in new home sales to search for something better. What I found was a career in residential property management (RPM), which offers a steady income in an economically resilient industry and much more.
Working in banking gave me customer service and analytical skills, but I wanted a career with a stronger connection to the community. That desire to help people led me to residential property management (RPM), where I can improve the lives of both residents and the members of my RPM team.
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.
