They say that if you do what you love, you never have to work a day in your life. After speaking with Amy Thompson, a Regional Manager for Landmark Property Management Company (LPMC), it was evident that this is a philosophy she lives by.

Amy began her journey in the housing industry two years ago as a property manager at Ridgecrest Apartments. It was shortly after she started there that she knew it was a great fit for her. "Seeing potential residents come in and get qualified for an apartment is really rewarding," she explained. "There is something about seeing a family sign their lease and giving them the keys to their new home that is so satisfying. I am grateful to be part of each family's new beginning."

Before she was a Property Manager, Amy worked for the Chamber of Commerce and explained that her skill set from that position translated into her property management role. "I met so many wonderful people and learned about the great businesses that are in our community while I worked there. Because of that knowledge, I was able to connect residents to various resources that they maybe didn't know were available to them."

Now, as a Regional Manager to 11 properties in four states, she motivates her team to continue to be active in the lives of residents. "I always planned events for my residents and tried to celebrate different holidays with them as well. You want it to feel like a community and you want your residents to trust you, so I encourage my team to do the same." Amy said her team does something at least once a month on their properties and can tell that it's something the managers and residents both enjoy. "It's a friendly competition between each of the properties I oversee. They like to know what the other properties are doing, and I think it motivates them to go above and beyond for our residents."
