April is an exciting month and one of the top reasons is that it’s Apartment Careers Month! Our Apartment Living team members are helpful, engaging and enthusiastic and we love to celebrate them and are grateful for their commitment to our residents. We believe it’s how you live that matters and our team’s dedication and responsiveness are two ways they improve the lives of our residents and the communities in which they live.
We recently caught up with Cali Wortelboer, HHHunt Apartment Living’s Employee of the Year! As Community Manager at Abberly Chase Apartment Homes in Ridgeland, South Carolina and long-time team member, Cali is excited to celebrate Apartment Careers Month.
Q: You were recently named the HHHunt Apartment Living Employee of the Year. Congratulations! What has your career with HHHunt entailed thus far?
Cali: Thank you. It was a great professional and personal accomplishment for me. My career with HHHunt has been very exciting. In 2010, I started as a Leasing Consultant and am now a Community Manager. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with so many amazing people and really develop my own professional style. As a Wellness Team member for two years, I was able to travel and visit other communities. I think that having experienced all the facets of what HHHunt does gives me a greater appreciation for our culture and brand promises.
Q: What do you enjoy the most about working with apartment communities and apartment residents?
Cali: Working in the multifamily industry is not always easy, but it is incredibly rewarding. I truly appreciate being able to give my residents a fun and comfortable place to call home. Frequently we develop working relationships with residents who can live at a community for one year or 10+ years. I’ve seen babies born, take their first steps, and go to school all while living at one of our communities. I have residents who move and make sure to stop by to say hello when they are in town. To know you made such an impact on their lives that they want to visit you is a great feeling.
Q: What makes HHHunt Apartment Living communities special?
Cali: At HHHunt, we are committed to being customer focused and a provider of quality products and services. Our customer service is unmatched and is the number one thing that sets our communities apart. We truly care about our communities and the residents and you can really see that by our reviews, returning and long-term residents!
Q: What advice would you have for individuals interested in apartment careers?
Cali: Stick with it! Learn as much as you can about the multifamily industry and really strive to show compassion and treat all residents with respect and understanding.
We’re thrilled to see Cali and other team members having such a positive impact on their communities and residents! HHHunt is honored to be a part of the apartment industry, creating places of great distinction that so many people call home. If you’re interested in working in the apartment industry with a company that values and empowers its team members, we encourage you to consider HHHunt’s career opportunities!
