We Love What We Do

[vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1413292866005{margin-top: -25px !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text css_animation=”left-to-right”]Everyone knows how different it feels to get help from someone who loves doing what they do, and how it feels to be helped by someone who is grudgingly doing what they have to do because it is their job. We  assure you that your experience with all of the staff at R.E.M. is always a pleasure – because we have great staff, a great team, and we enjoy every minute of it.

 

One of the biggest challenges in this business is turnover. It is a high-stress industry and if not managed well, staff get burned out and leave. What this means to an owner is that there is no continuity or long term knowledge of your building and there is no long term contact with whom you develop a longstanding relationship of trust. A manager that has been working with a building for many years understands its quirks much like one understands an old friend.  At R.E.M. we not only carefully hire people passionate about what they do, we nurture the passion, and work together as a team to ensure longevity and continuity in management.

 

At R.E.M., our team approach is unique. We get to know each other’s building issues so we can take over seamlessly for each other in case of emergency.  This allows us to help out when shorthanded, but it also allows us the freedom to go on vacation without stress knowing we have each other’s backs, preventing burnout.  This is a huge difference from our competitors who assure you they have others to chip in, and then all they do is provide you a list of vendors and contractors to call in case of emergency. At R.E.M. we help each other and go the extra mile to make sure all of our clients and their properties are taken care of. Our staff return refreshed year after year – and the longevity our staff enjoy at R.E.M. is unheard of. Our unique style of teamwork is unrivaled in our industry.

 

Instead of telling you how much our staff love the Real Estate business and how much they enjoy working at R.E.M., we’ll let them tell you in their own words.

We created an atmosphere where teamwork is fostered and enjoyed. We all help each other and no one ever says “it’s not my job.” Everyone will pick up a call or greet a resident walking in. We do a lot of team building such as hiking trips, staff lunches together every Friday and other group activities. We have a lounge where employees can eat,watch TV, unwind or even take a nap if they don’t feel well. We spend more time with each other than with our families and I have worked hard to build a place where we feel like home.

But from where I sit it feels very rewarding to be appreciated and we often get praised. Watching over dozens of clients’ investments takes dedication and commitment. And running it like it is our own is the only way I know how. I am passionate about the physical aspects of Property Management, but also the back office. I enjoy providing comprehensive reporting to my clients and the satisfaction of watching expenses melt away while rents continue to climb. Interaction with my clients is continuous and I never stop trying to do more. They never have to ask me what’s going on because I tell them before they can ask.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][/mpc_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][mpc_image image=”10152″ image_size=”full” image_opacity=”100″ effect=”none” image_hover_opacity=”100″ animation_in_type=”transition.slideRightIn” animation_in_offset=”100″ animation_in_duration=”300″ animation_in_delay=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” first_background_color=”#e5e5e5″ el_class=”accordon-row” css=”.vc_custom_1464092177125{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][mpc_image image=”10153″ image_size=”full” image_opacity=”100″ effect=”none” image_hover_opacity=”100″ animation_in_type=”transition.slideRightIn” animation_in_offset=”100″ animation_in_duration=”300″ animation_in_delay=”0″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]

I am proud of building this company with my husband. We have worked hard and had to sacrifice a lot – family events, parties, weddings, vacations. But it was worth every second. I have more than made up for it by hosting R.E.M events. I love having colleagues, clients, family and friends to share it all with. It is my passion to help others, and helping people find jobs and find apartments makes me feel good. I love the process. I feel that the more we grow, the more people around us grow with us.

[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]I love helping and interacting with people. It makes me feel good when I can help people. I know how stressful the moving process can be and I give people I work with some much needed TLC and help them to find a home that makes them happy. The feeling of gratitude they have when we help them stays in the office when they leave. It is an immensely rewarding feeling.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][/mpc_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” enable_first_overlay=”true” first_overlay_opacity=”25″ first_background_color=”#e5e5e5″ enable_second_overlay=”true” second_overlay_opacity=”25″ enable_top_separator=”true” top_separator_style=”slope-left” top_separator_color=”#ffffff” enable_bottom_separator=”true” bottom_separator_style=”slope-left” bottom_separator_color=”#ffffff” el_class=”accordon-row” css=”.vc_custom_1464093034175{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″]

R.E.M. trusts us as individuals and as a team to do our jobs well. Our opinions are valued and we feel like partners, not just employees.

[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]Real Estate is a ”people” industry and I meet new and interesting people every day. I love having the opportunity to help people. When I help someone to find their home, it makes me feel like I am touching people’s lives. Real Estate is a very dynamic industry. It’s never boring. I constantly learn new things and in this business there is always a possibility that there is more to learn. I like that this industry is so closely related with others: construction, financing, government, etc. There are so many people and businesses to get to know as a result. I love that Real Estate is an industry that connects generations and looks toward to the future. In its essence, Real Estate is a big part of New York City. I love the idea that just by the structures we get to choose to build new or preserve history.

[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]I love being able to bridge the gap between the Owners & Tenants by keeping everyone satisfied. I always put myself in that person’s shoes regardless of whether it is the owner or tenant so that I understand and respond to the situation at hand. I love that I am always learning something new, and that different situations come up every day. I enjoy being flexible and coming up with new solutions. I like helping owners maintain their sanity and treating their properties as they are my own so that they have the confidence that their property is well taken care of. I enjoy the feeling of seeing an owner relaxed and satisfied because he knows that his property is well taken care of. The best thing for me is having an owner or tenant thank me for resolving or helping with a situation. Tenants have this idea that the Property Managers really don’t care about tenants because we work for the Owners. I explain to them that we care about the tenants and that we are people too. There is nothing better than knowing that my actions make people feel like they matter.

There is a relaxed atmosphere with a feeling that we are trusted to do our jobs without being micromanaged. It is very enjoyable to work in an environment where you have the trust of your supervisor. It’s a wonderful feeling to work in a place where office politics in a non-issue. This is mainly the case because at R.E.M. we all feel as if we are on the same team. Everyone gets along which is rare in most working environments. I love the openness of the R.E.M. office. It contributes to our team’s production and positive attitude. R.E.M.’s doors are always open to staff, tenants and owners/clients. On weekends staff can catch up on work and often clients are invited to join us for lunch and a meeting at our beautiful office. We each have our own style and approach to management, and R.E.M. welcomes our individuality as strengths. This is a trait that will only allow our company to grow stronger in the coming years.
[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]This industry has allowed me to see how this city really runs, from the inside out. I work shoulder-to-shoulder with the city’s most important people – landlords. What’s more important that the place you call home? There is never a dull moment in this business and if there is it is always followed by a very memorable one. Hearing appreciative tenants and stories of a past issue that was resolved as a result of our work is one of the most rewarding feelings I can get. This industry is built on relationships and trust like no other. The Real Estate Industry prepares one for anything and everything. Working in this industry is helped me with the properties I own now and is preparing me for the properties will own in the future. I like being a part of one of the most important industries in the city that I love like no other.

The outings we do throughout the year (like hiking trips, etc) are a big bonus, and I now look forward to these events because not only are they fun, they bring the team closer together.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]As a landlord myself I like and really enjoy Property Management. Not only is there always something new to learn from my co-workers and clients, but also the possibility of sharing my own set of skills and knowledge with them. When I get to know a building well, i start to see and feel it as my own, and it makes me feel like a proud parent. I enjoy watching the properties grow, taking care of them, and of course I take pride in them.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][/mpc_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][mpc_image image=”10228″ image_size=”full” image_opacity=”100″ effect=”none” image_hover_opacity=”100″ animation_in_type=”transition.slideRightIn” animation_in_offset=”100″ animation_in_duration=”300″ animation_in_delay=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” enable_first_overlay=”true” first_overlay_opacity=”25″ el_class=”accordon-row” css=”.vc_custom_1464959177748{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][mpc_image image=”10159″ image_size=”full” image_opacity=”100″ effect=”none” image_hover_opacity=”100″ animation_in_type=”transition.slideRightIn” animation_in_offset=”100″ animation_in_duration=”300″ animation_in_delay=”0″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″]

The weekly meetings with all members is a excellent time for the exchange of ideas and comments and the airing of any issues.

Having never looked back, this was the right decision for me and the field I have grown in and enjoyed doing. Helping clients and coming up in some cases with novel solutions is a challenge I have always welcomed. Property management has given me a great opportunity to meet many people with their different cultures and backgrounds which for the most part has always been a delight and a education.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][/mpc_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” enable_first_overlay=”true” first_overlay_opacity=”25″ first_background_color=”#e5e5e5″ enable_top_separator=”true” top_separator_style=”slope-left” top_separator_color=”#ffffff” enable_bottom_separator=”true” bottom_separator_style=”slope-left” bottom_separator_color=”#ffffff” el_class=”accordon-row” css=”.vc_custom_1464958762136{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″]

It doesn’t matter how the market is, business will always be there and people will ALWAYS need places to live in! I’ve learnt about all aspects of humanity rather quickly in this business, which can be both eye opening and amusing. If you’re an organized person, real estate reinforces it – if you’re not, you quickly become organized! What I love about this business is that I meet a lot of different people. Fellowshipping is ever present and is not a lost art.

I walked out of my interview thinking to myself “I really hope I get this job.” It’s a very good opportunity to learn new things and the best part is that you will get help the moment a question comes up. I really admire the way Rick runs R.E.M. He is professional, very approachable, friendly, and not for a second do you feel like he is bossy or controlling. Everyone at R.E.M. really cares for you – for work related or non-work related issues you know they are there for you. Shpresa is the joy of this company and this family!

ROCKS!!!![/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”What I love About Real Estate”][vc_column_text]Real estate is an industry that grows every day. It has a very dynamic nature especially here in New York. Personally I love a job where you are not all the time behind a computer but you are also in contact with people. And this is just the right industry for that. I am continually in touch with people and taking care of their needs.  Because real estate is so varied, it opens a new window of knowledge every day. It is truly a “helping others” profession, where you are required to constantly meet others demands and guide them towards the path that best fits their needs.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][/mpc_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” enable_first_overlay=”true” first_overlay_opacity=”25″ first_background_color=”#e5e5e5″ enable_top_separator=”true” top_separator_style=”slope-left” top_separator_color=”#ffffff” el_class=”accordon-row” css=”.vc_custom_1465202005652{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″]
