Rob Risman testified on behalf of the Ohio Apartment Association in support of House Bill 343 before the State of Ohio, House Ways and Means Committee in Columbus. House Bill 343 was introduced by Maumee County Rep. Derek Merrin to require local governing bodies-such as school boards- to pass resolutions authorizing individual complaints filed by their attorneys in an effort to contest real property assessments. The bill requires each resolution to appear on the board's meeting agenda and to be voted on and also would require advance written notice to be provided to the property owner in question. Mr. Risman's testimony included the facts surrounding Burton Carol's real estate tax appeal at Marine Towers West in Lakewood, Ohio. The hearing was reported by Gongwer News Service that reports on issues in and around state government and politics. A copy of that article is reprinted HERE.

Spring of 2017 unleashed a mighty contest for all of the Ohio properties to increase rentals and renewals. The properties were broken into three groups based on size of properties and it all culminated with a Leasing Seminar at Windows on the River where national speaker superstar Toni Blake was our MC and headline speaker. Prizes were given for most leases by individuals and properties along with a renewal contest. The winners (one per group) of the renewal contest earned a lunch as a winning team at Wasabi. We all waited until the rush of summer was over and then enjoyed a nice sunny fall afternoon together. Click here to see photos.

Fir Hill said welcome to the future of package delivery with the installation of the all-new "UPS Access Point". With more of our residents buying things on line and having them shipped to their apartment home via UPS, it seemed like only a natural for something like this to find its way to the property. A resident expecting a package receives an e-mail from UPS with a bar code. The recipient takes their smart phone to the machine, places the bar code where indicated and "poof"...the door to the locker where their package was delivered opens. How is that for convenience! For a look at the new UPS access point at Fir Hill, click here and here.

Saying good bye to someone special is never easy so we decided at our "sort of Retirement Party" for Mary Mathews, was that this was not good bye but see you later. When Burton Carol Management created a tag line that says "Solid Foundations Solid People" it easily could have had Mary in mind. With over 35 years of Extreme Excellence and Dedication, Mary decided that it was time to retire from work though listening to her schedule of things she will be doing, it is clear that she will remain quite beyond busy. There is no doubt that everything Mary took on for this company in the past 35 years, she not only mastered, but excelled at, beyond anyone's wildest dreams. She will be sorely missed both as a person and the job she did. She will however over the course of the next year, spend some time with her protégée Tammy Sari, when year one of critical insurance items arise so we plan on seeing Mary over the next year for sure. Please see the beautiful memory in pictures of her party by clicking here.

If you look back at the news entry for June 14, 2016, you will see that a fall day was to be the turn of the eight on site property managers that missed out on the Summer bus tour that visited all 16 Burton Carol managed properties . Today was that day! The eager crew of onsite property managers, regional property managers, Joy, Rob, John and Tony were joined this time by some of our best onsite maintenance techs. Everyone met early in the morning at Crossings Village where a continental breakfast was served before loading on to the new Scarlet Tours bus. The theme for the day was all about Halloween and Trick or Treat, but the real treat was having the opportunity to visit all 16 Northeast Ohio properties in a single day and gain the perspective of so many invaluable Burton Carol associates; most of whom have never seen other properties managed by Burton Carol other than their home site. It was a beautiful fall sunny and crisp day that was enjoyed by all. Click HERE to see some photos from the day. The properties, all of which were judged for curb appeal by everyone on the Bus, including Eric the driver, were all decked out with Halloween and Fall decorations including a set of spooky minions that adorned the entry of Arbor Court Apartments.

Talk about a change of scenery. It was the Burton Carol Ohio Corporate office's turn to take to the road to visit all 16 Northeast Ohio properties. The Scarlet Tours bus left the corporate office early in the morning and did not return until the end of the business day. This was the first opportunity that many of the main office personnel have had to visit the properties that they have worked on for so many years. Everyone had a score sheet and rated the properties in various categories. It was a wonderful way to get a new perspective and a fresh set of eyes on each of the properties. A yellow ribbon was hidden somewhere on the exterior of each property, and the first person to find it was given, of all things, a toy stuffed goose!. Why a goose?... well everyone found out during lunch at Crossings Village in Westlake when Joy Anzalone introduced "What We Can Learn From Geese" with a hand out and a short video (see the News entry from May 24, 2016). The day was all about teamwork and inclusion, where our corporate office associates got to see firsthand the great work that is being done every day on our beautiful properties.

The Ohio Apartment Division enjoyed a special day visiting all 16 Ohio properties on a bus chartered from Scarlet Transportation & Adventure Tours. This adventure started out at Crossings Village Apartments where everyone was handed a brown bag continental breakfast. The "curb appeal" marathon extravaganza not only included all of the Regional Property Managers, Joy Anzalone, Rob Risman, John Petryshin and Tony Anzalone, but also the on-site property managers for 8 of the 16 properties. This gave an all new perspective on things from our manager's that don't often get to see other Burton Carol Management properties. It was a beautiful day and one that none of us will soon forget. The properties all looked wonderful and everyone judged each property's curb appeal and ranked them in various categories on a scale from 1 to 5. In the fall we plan on doing it all over again with the other 8 on-site property managers. We can't wait! Click here to see a few photos.

What can we learn from geese? It turns out that you can learn plenty of valuable lessons from from our feathery friends that fly South for the Winter. The Ohio Apartment Division kicked off the Summer with an all staff meeting at the Royalton Greens Party Room to reflect on the past Winter and to look forward to another award winning curb appeal season. As you can see from the attached handout, Geese teach us all great lessons about team work and how Together Everyone Accomplishes More! Every property was given a toy stuffed goose to keep in their rental office to remind the staff every day that they are a team and they can accomplish so much more working together and encouraging one another. Finally our good friends from Sauced Wood Fired Pizza made everyone individual made to order pizzas which was a perfect way to end a perfect day.

April 11, 2016 - In Memoriam to our great friend and colleague David M. King.
 
David King, Burton Carol Management's General Counsel, suddenly passed away on April 11, 2016. David was much more than an attorney at Burton Carol. He played a vital role in all facets of the company operations and served as a key advisor to the executive team at the company. David worked with Burton Carol and before that Consolidated Management Inc. for the better part of 30 years. It is impossible to replace his experience, knowledge, and presence at the company. David will be sorely missed by all of his friends and associates at Burton Carol. He was not only a consummate professional and a brilliant real estate attorney, but a trusted and caring friend to all that he worked with. Our deepest condolences to his most loved daughters Sarah, Jennifer (Bob) Lehman, his most special granddaughter Sydney Lehman and his wife Susan.
