Happy Holidays from Nicolosi & Fitch

In light of everything that’s going on in the world right now it’s easy to get caught up in the sadness and pain.  I’m making the choice to enjoy each and every person in my life that I love and all the little moments I have with them. Enjoy the holidays with family and friends!

October Employee of the Month - Sonia Valenzuela

Sonia Valenzuela leased up our new Sonrisa Apartment Community in record time while still maintaining over 90% occupancies in all her other special needs properties. She has added two new social service organizations that she must deal with on a monthly basis by adding this one property and has kept on top of her re-certifications and monthly inspections (all her units – 158 of them) have to be inspected MONTHLY. Additionally, Sonia had two state inspections during the month with the AZ Department of Housing and one lender inspection. Sonia regularly has to work late to accommodate the social service organizations holding “community meetings” for our residents at the various locations. In September, she stayed late at least once and also toured Congressman Raul Grajalva around her new community. She has a special app on her phone that is connected to the clubhouse at her new community that she monitors when she is not at the property (and even checks it when she wakes up in the middle of the night just to make sure all is well)!

Nicolosi & Fitch September Employee of the Month!

Steve Weber - Altamira Apartments  -Tucson, AZ
Steve Weber, Maintenance Supervisor at Altamira Apartments - Tucson, AZ

Steve has been at Altamira for over 10 years now as the Maintenance Supervisor. In September, we had the parking lot resurfaced and with only one way in and out of the property, it can be challenging. Steve worked with the paving company and residents to ensure that there was clear communication for everyone so this project would be smooth and successful. Throughout the process the paving company was very impressed with Steve’s ability to communicate with them and the residents and that not a single car was towed in the process. Steve was always in early and staying late to ensure that this project went off without a hitch along with keeping up with his other duties on the property. Great job Steve!

Will Dance for Apartment Rentals

What would you do to promote your apartment community?  The Woods Apartments in Tucson, AZ was inspired by Psy's "Gangnam Style"; you know that little earworm of a song currently making the "Call Me Maybe" rounds of every youtube video, morning talk show and anything else that emits sound.

The Woods lovely leasing agent, Davena, memorized the moves from the original video and took to the streets in a frog costume with a sign. She's a good sport. Why a frog you ask? During monsoons you can actually spot a frog or two hopping around the property.  Welcome Ribbit - The Official Mascot for The Woods Apartments.

Check out Davena's killer moves (done with no music!) in the YouTube video sweeping the NFI blog!
