In 2019, our youngest flew the nest and I’m not going to lie, it was hard. Maybe a bit more than hard. I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to follow our kids to every game, school event, school field trip, etc., and some would say that I’ve lived my whole life around our kids, and I wouldn’t disagree honestly. In fact, WLVR was formed as a sideline job that would help me be an active Mom and keep the kids with me at all times. And, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to have excellent staff that helped me get to anything and everything I’ve wanted to do. I’m blessed to be able to say that I’ve done it all, being supported by wonderful staff, and understanding owners…..with the last “little” graduating, some would say that I should slow down a bit, but honestly, I think its the perfect time to GROW!
So grow we did…..we had the awesome opportunity to take over another company’s portfolio and there were so many reasons to say YES and we jumped at the chance. But, I firmly believe that one should only grow for a good reason and to only jump when you know that you can still do a great job for old as well as new Owners in the program.
So why did I decide to grow? It was was pretty simple….I have excellent staff and these were excellent homes. I believe that adding these 10 (ish) properties to our portfolio is only going to keep our excellent staff even busier and keeping loyal customers happy by helping keep these 10 very popular homes in a rental program.
So grow we did….and I’m really excited. We have added more middle management, evaluated all of our policies and procedures and all the inner workings of WLVR and evaluate ways we can be better as a core group. I think every year we just continue to get better….
But I’m biased….because I am blessed to be surrounded with the best of the best…from the phone gals to middle management to domestic engineers to owners to garbage/yard staff…..I’m surrounded by the best people around and I’m blessed!
