Rental housing professionals, especially onsite team members, have been on the frontlines during this crisis; committing themselves to performing the vital work necessary to keep the community together and moving forward during these trying times. Due to all of their hard work, the rental housing industry is taking time to celebrate our vital, onsite teams throughout the country for their dedication to keeping residents in our communities well served and safely housed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
August 12, 2020 is Apartment Onsite Teams Day, so join in the fun to raise awareness and show our appreciation for the rental housing industry’s onsite staff!
