Employee of the Month

 

As the year comes to an end, we would like to congratulate Emmanuel Coleman on being our December Employee of the Month. Emmanuel has been working for Dreyfuss Management for over 5 years and has been a major staple in the company’s operations. As Supervisor of Maintenance at The Metropolitan, Emmanuel is faced with a number of challenging issues, but, no matter the challenge, he always has a smile on his face. From discontinued parts to having to adhere to historical restrictions, Emmanuel’s main focus is always on improving the property no matter the obstacle and giving the best customer service to his residents.

 

However, his skills don’t just stop at the community. Emmanuel also meets monthly with upper management to discuss any topics affecting the company’s maintenance supervisors and sits on different company panels. His willingness to help out when needed and his eagerness to constantly keep learning have made him a great asset to Dreyfuss management. We would like to thank Emmanuel for all he has done for The Metropolitan and Dreyfuss.

Employee of the Month

 

Brookville Townhomes is fortunate to have Jennifer Britt as their Assistant Property Manager. Jennifer joined the team in October of 2015 and has consistently contributed to the success of the property. During the recent Yardi transition, Jennifer took point for her team by learning how to use the software and keeping everything running smoothly. She shared her knowledge with her colleagues and Brookville did not miss a beat during the transition.

 

Jennifer’s favorite parts of her job are providing excellent customer service and planning resident events. Jennifer organized Resident Appreciation Day and Movie Night to promote community engagement and develop strong community ties. Congratulations Jennifer and thank you for all you do at Brookville!

Employee of the Month

 

To say that Luis Cabrera at Ashley Apartments goes above and beyond as his role as Property manager is an understatement. Even during difficult times and being understaffed over the last few months, Luis has continued to maintain occupancy, create a welcoming atmosphere for his residents and provide world class customer service. Luis leases apartments handles collections and has even been caught completing maintenance requests at times. Luis’ energetic style, professional attitude and commitment to Ashley is infectious. Since starting at the property in April, Luis has implemented several new projects. His desire to enhance the living experience is being talked about by many residents. They are happy with the progress of the property and his residents love him. Many residents stop by the office just to say hi. No matter what Luis has going on, he stops what he is doing and takes time to speak to each resident. Luis is a valued team member of Dreyfuss, and we are honored to have him on our team. Congratulations to October’s employee of the month Luis Cabrera!  Your Dreyfuss Family is very proud of you!

Employee of the Month

 

We are so pleased to announce Cindy Hackley as September’s employee of the month. Cindy has played a vital role during our company’s transition to a new property management software. She has attended all training sessions and she has demonstrated an acute focus on details to assist staff with their learning. Cindy has been a leader with the software implementation for our communities. Over the years, Cindy has held several positions with Dreyfuss. She has been a trainer, auditor, systems director and is always willing to support operations or lend support to her colleagues.

 

Reflecting her tenure and skill in property management, Cindy has become our “first responder” to aide with problem-solving, issue resolution and mentoring staff. Cindy “lives” our company culture each day and always accepts challenges without hesitation. She also helps enforce policy, assists with office organization or set-up and she can lease an apartment home when the need is there. Cindy continues to strive for excellence and she is a valued asset to Dreyfuss Management. Thank you, Cindy, for all that you do for us!

Remembering Chelsea Eaton

 

We are deeply saddened to inform you of the untimely passing of Chelsea Eaton. Chelsea held the position of Assistant Property Manager at Ashley Apartments and she was a part of the Dreyfuss family for 16 years. Chelsea contributed to Dreyfuss in many more ways than serving the residents and management of Ashley. She was a member of the Yardi transition team, the internal audit program as well as supporting the main office operations and financial services. Regardless of your tenure with Dreyfuss, Chelsea probably assisted you directly or indirectly at some point in your workday. Chelsea was a colleague, teammate, friend and partner. Let us take a moment to remember her sense of humor and smile, her energy, strong will and her dedication to us at Dreyfuss.

Employee of the Month

 

We have been short a leasing consultant at Crane Village since April, but Julie Straub recognized the need to increase her efforts to meet the challenge. While the Assistant Manager was out of the office most of the month, enrolled in real estate classes, and the Manager was busy with her own duties, there were about 5 days that month where Julie worked alone. The leasing office was busier than usual, and she had difficult tasks to conquer. Julie recognized the obstacles and she jumped into the middle of the workload like a veteran.  Julie never complained about the added assignments. She swiftly learned new responsibilities such as daily reports, how to manage social media and resident events.

 

She had 20 marketing tours this past week and she has learned to be much more organized with her time and has had over 30 rentals in the last 60 days. Julie is developing expertise and her performance and dedication have been outstanding. We have seen more growth in skills from her in the last 60 days. Julie has been with us just a year, but she has demonstrated a positive attitude and a desire to serve.

 

Congratulations Julie on a job well done and for being Dreyfuss Management’s employee of the month for July 2019!

Our brave travelers of the Yellow Brick Road shared much useful information including:

• Effective Business Writing

• Why Renter’s Insurance is important

• Communicating Effectively with Residents

We would like to congratulate DelRon Lowe on his recent achievement in earning both his HVAC 1 and HVAC 2 certifications, both with exemplary scores. Starting as the sole groundskeeper at Crane Village Apartments, DelRon's adaptability and eagerness to learn led him to become an integral part of the maintenance team.

 

A valued team member since 2013, DelRon continues to strive for excellence and growth, seeking new learning opportunities to cultivate and hone his skills. When he's not putting his skills to use at work, DelRon is a devoted father of four, as well as a talented chef and entrepreneur.  We are so happy to have DelRon as a part of our team!

Employee of the Month

 

Louis Hiles at Byrd Center is a superstar through and through. He knocks it out of the park on all aspects of maintenance but shines as brightly when he uses his tools for customer service. Louis jumps right in to show space to prospects and even suggests to tenants that “look like you could use more space”. He understands the real estate area but more importantly understands teamwork and pitched in to cover when needed. Tenants ask for him by name to get recommendations for vendors to use as they trust his knowledge and expertise. Congratulations Louis!

Employee of the Month

 

The saying, “It’s a one person show” has never been more accurate than for the team at Silver Spring House. With only one manager and one maintenance supervisor, the two have to make sure that they are running both of their departments like well oiled machines. In the case of our May Employee of the Month, Silver Spring House’s Maintenance Supervisor, Deyvis Valdez-Taveras, he not only had to make sure that his department was running smoothly, but he also had to do it while preparing for the 2019 Maintenance Mania.

 

Every year, maintenance supervisors and technicians from all over DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia come together to compete against one another at Maintenance Mania. The overall winners of the competition not only get to call themselves the winner, but they also get a chance to compete in the National Championship hosted by NAA. This was Deyvis’ first time competing in the competition, but it definitely won’t be his last.

 

We would like to thank Deyvis for not only stepping up and being the first Dreyfuss member to take part in this year’s competition, but we would also like to thank him for doing it while also keeping his community looking good and running smoothly. His dedication and ability to balance multiple hats at one time has made him a great asset to the Dreyfuss family.

 

April 11th 2019

Employee of the Month

 

With Dreyfuss’ transition to a more tech savvy company, Theresa Pacious has been essential in leading our employees through the sometimes-hard transition. While doing her normal jobs as Accounts Payable Supervisor and Payroll Supervisor, Theresa has also taken on the role of rolling out a new online lease software for our communities and is helping with our communities’ transition to new accounting software. Theresa’s great customer service and easy-going attitude has made a her an employee many can rely on and seek out advice from.

Employee of the Month

 

Dedicated, knowledgeable, and loyal are just a few ways to describe maintenance technician, Carlos Garcia. Carlos has been working as a maintenance technician at Heritage Park Apartments since August of 2015 and continues to go above and beyond his role as maintenance tech.

 

Carlos is always willing to help no matter how big or how small the project is. Whether it be turning a unit or making a minor repair, Carlos will always jump at the chance to help out.  In the latter part of last year, Carlos was asked to help out at sister community, Glen Willow Apartments and with no hesitation, said yes.  Despite the challenge of having to work at a totally different community, he proved to be invaluable to the Glen Willow team.  He provided excellent customer service to the residents and performed his duties exceptionally.

Shelia O. James

Property Manager at Del Vista Apartments

Employee Since: April 2017

 

Del Vista Apartments experienced a fire in December of 2017. The fire affected 13 apartment homes, meaning that 13 residents were displaced. Six families lost all their possessions and the other seven homes suffered smoke and water damage. Without hesitation Shelia jumped into action and began delegating her team to assist the residents by giving out jackets, blankets and accompanying them to the pool house where it was warm. Shelia also contacted Red Cross and had accommodations setup for all the residents at a nearby hotel.

 

Shelia's goal was to try to keep as many residents as possible by transferring them to other available apartments on the property and to get them all back into their homes as fast as possible. Shelia coordinated with all 13 residents' insurance companies to ensure coverage was provided and inspections performed. With Shelia's commitment and hard work to the property and to her residents, seven residents were able to move back into their apartment homes before Christmas.

 

Shelia displayed unsurpassed customer service during this tragic event. Her dedication makes her a true asset to the Dreyfuss organization and to the community. Because of her actions we want to thank her by giving her the February Employee of the Month Award.

 

Sheila enjoys spending time with her family and friends when she is not working and her favorite movie is "The Green Mile".

Charlie Keener Remembrance

 

On January 3rd we received the heartbreaking news of the passing of our beloved Charlie Keener, Maintenance Supervisor at Oakton Park Apartments. Charlie was a member of the Dreyfuss work family for over 25 years. He left us with so many good memories as a dedicated role model for his fellow staff members and a respected leader for the property. Upon your first meeting with him you knew he had a caring spirit and a genuine desire to serve our clients and residents. He possessed many skills and demonstrated his values through his work and leadership. Charlie made positive, lasting impressions on everyone he encountered. He will be missed every day.

Saying Goodbye

 

On October 13, 2017 Dreyfuss Management said goodbye to a valued member of our family. Chad Hill retired after dedicating more than two decades to our organization. Chad contributed to the Dreyfuss reputation as an esteemed, professional management organization serving the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan area for more than 80 years.

 

Chad demonstrated his skills at every level of multi-family housing administration. He excelled as a property manager, was promoted to an executive, lead projects for property acquisition, marketing strategies, construction management, staff training and assisted with developing the policy and procedures manual.  Through all of these experiences he carried himself with honor, class and a genuine desire to serve our clients and residents. Chad was a mentor to staff and instilled an ethical approach to our business. Chad will be missed, but we know he will remain busy with family, golf, reading and his other ventures.

 

Dreyfuss Management expects to maintain the same level of expertise and commitment to excellence as it turns over the position of Director of Property Management to James M. Santos.
