This event was designed by women to help you discover YOUR vision and usher it to reality.

This will be a time to focus and empower YOUR plan. Expect to experience a new way to view ambition and balance for YOURSELF.

Kicking the day off right, we’ll have a nice breakfast and mingle a bit before centering ourselves to prepare for a focus-forward morning. Our first session will be an opportunity to create a clear vision based on the experiences you want to create. This includes identifying YOUR individual purpose and passion in life! After a short break, we’ll talk through the roadblocks and issues we face before moving into setting our action plans and effecting our goals.

She shifted over to the vendor side of the business in 2012 when she began as an account executive at Propertyware. It was there that she learned about her love of the single-family property management industry and the passion property managers have for their craft. She worked at Propertyware and its parent company, Realpage, for nearly 8 years before taking an opportunity with Second Nature. She’s been blown away by the loyalty of Second Nature’s client base and is excited to continue cultivating relationships with property managers like you.

What Are We About?

The purpose of this council will be to focus on the development of leadership qualities in women.  We want to help them become better businesswomen, speakers, and leaders in their communities as well as in the real estate and property management industries. While our focus will primarily be on women and women’s development, men are encouraged to attend women-led trainings, webinars, and breakout sessions to gain knowledge and insights on working with the women in their businesses and how they can help them grow as well.

The day to day operations of running a property management company are changing, including how we collect rent, maintain properties, do inspections, etc. With these changes, we can start to embrace the unique qualities women bring to property management.  This is not solely about gender. There is power in connecting with one another; men and women alike can benefit from connecting. By connecting with one another we can shine a brighter light on and improve this industry, which is the main goal of NARPM and any of their members. Women tend to have fewer role models and mentors and therefore can feel as if they need to conform to the traditional leadership model which can sacrifice her individuality and strengths.  This is easily remedied by simply growing those who are ready to step into the leadership areas they were created for.
