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.

Charlie Keener Award

 

The panel will be chosen from Property employees, Operations, the Executive Team and one member from the Oakton Park staff. The total of the panel members should be no more than seven (7) in number, with two (2) alternates. The panel will elect a presiding Chairperson (Chair) to organize and facilitate the process of candidate review. The Chair will only cast a vote in the event of a tie between panel members. Each panel member has one vote.

 

To qualify as a candidate for the Charlie Keener award:

 Nominees must be employed at a Dreyfuss-managed community for at least one year.

 Recommended for the award, in writing, by one colleague. NOTE: additional “voices” strengthen the candidate’s

position as a nominee.

 The written summary of candidacy must offer an example from at least two of the stated disciplines. NOTE:

additional summaries of experiences for more than two disciplines enhance a candidate’s selection.

 

Nominations open September 1 and close September 30 each year. The “one-year tenure” is measured as of August 31 each year. The selected employee will receive an engraved plaque, a certificate of appreciation, recognition on the Dreyfuss website w/social media as well as a cash award. The winner of the award will be announced on or before December 1 each year. LEARN MORE

With Dreyfuss’ transition to a more tech savvy company, Theresa Pacious has been essential in leading our employees through the sometimes-hard transition.

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.
