Homestead U moved up three spots from 28th to 25th in Student Housing Business top 25 Management Companies. Over the last couple of years, HU has brought on more than 2,100 beds and is continuing to build. We look forward to what the future holds and none of this could have been done without the hard work and dedication of our team.
The Ranch at StarPass threw a view party for the Victorian Secrets Fashion Show. The team outdid themselves and gave away prizes for the participants. It was a huge hit, and the event went off without a hitch. “After seeing the pictures, I’m jealous I wasn’t invited” Shannon Latsko, Leasing and Marketing Director at University Village.
University Village took their residents to the Zoo Lights despite the frigged temperatures, and as always, it was a huge success.
The View got into the holiday spirit and passed out goodies to their residents. After much deliberation, we’ve decided that these will be the new View uniforms.
The company continues to grow and it wouldn’t be possible without the Homestead Team Members providing the best resident life experience possible. This year, we honored those that went gone above and beyond 2017. Nominees were voted by their co-workers and it was tough decision with a lot of competition.
This year’s winners were:
Amanda Heintzelman 2017 MVP-Multi-Site Leasing
Majid Nosrati 2017 MVP Maintenance Supervisor, Hampton Woods
