Managing properties across county lines can be complicated enough, but managing properties in five different states is a whole other ballgame. To keep processes and metrics consistent throughout their portfolio, while enabling employees with easy-to-use software, Sunbelt Properties chose AppFolio as their technology partner.
Recent data shows that 69% of satisfied property management employees have greater flexibility, more work/life balance, and less busywork than their non-satisfied peers. Here’s how Sunbelt Properties leverages technology to deliver on those employee needs:
Sunbelt Properties manages 3,500 units in five different states, with a current headcount of 90 employees. All of their growth occurred between 2019 and today. Mike and Danielle credit much of this growth to their employees feeling connected and empowered.
“At Sunbelt, we strive to make employees feel connected to what we're doing, to care about the spaces we work in. We want them to care about their coworkers and the partners and our vendor relationships. So I feel pride that a lot of our employees come from all walks of life and that they all feel like they fit into a place that they can call their own.”See Who We Serve
Optimizing Sunbelt’s day-to-day operations has created space for Mike and Danielle to be able to serve their communities:
“We do a lot of community events, everything from clothing drives, backpack drives, to being involved in our local chamber of commerce. Our company culture is having the property manager feel like they're empowered to be connected to the residents of their community, for whatever their community needs.”Learn About Our Software
“AppFolio gives us space to pursue the things that we want to pursue. And in our case, that’s giving back. It's important for us to have a connection to the community.”
