After being promoted to Shareholder Representative and later Supervisor of the Shareholder Representatives, in 2002, Jennifer became our Property Manager. This title enabled her to gain valuable real estate management experience, as well as, a more in depth understanding of Office Personnel Management. Each year, Jennifer has also broadened her understanding of Real Estate Law, Rent Stabilization Guidelines and Landlord-Tenant Law, as she attended seminars and worked to resolve the many resident issues presented weekly. Her strong customer service skills and ability to defuse heated situations are Jennifer’s most valuable assets--especially when it comes to resident mediations, Tenant-Landlord court procedures, evictions and unit inspections. Jennifer will continue her previous involvement in the renovation and sale of unoccupied apartments, where she has always strived to increase the overall value of our property. One of her first goals in her new position was to streamline the Maintenance Services Department, which enabled it to run more efficiently.
