I have been in property management for 17 years and particularly in multi-family management for the past 10 years. Berkshire by far has been the best company that I have worked for. I have been amazed at how the company helps support and develops each employee to succeed at the highest level. The fostering and nurturing begins in each regional office in which it quickly identifies future leaders. The continued development is aided by the internal training program (its own training division helped create) as well partnering with a mentor in the company. The core values are a focus for each employee to uphold and there is a great focus on work/life balance. Friendly, outgoing and caring is how I would describe the employees that work for Berkshire. I pinch myself when I wake up because I know that I am living the dream of working for such a great company. To attract great talent you must have and retain great talent, this is what Berkshire is all about.
To quote the great philosopher Confucius, "Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life." My experience has been just that. Since the beginning of my career at Berkshire Communities I have been exposed to what it means to love what you do. When I first started interviewing I would hear the testimonials of people who have worked for Berkshire for years. Their pride, enthusiasm and sincere love for the company was almost unbelievable. As I approach my sixth year as a maintenance supervisor here, the relationship I have with my coworkers is amazing! It's like a family reunion when I get the opportunity to interact with other employees from different sites and from all over the country. It is such great pleasure to work with so many people from so many different backgrounds, and yet we all have a common goal, our residents. The support I receive from managers and other team members is top notch. Our team leaders are easy to talk to and don't feel out of reach. Berkshire's continuing education keeps us sharp and on top of the latest developments that pertain to our careers. It is more than a pleasure to work for such a great organization and I look forward to being a part of Berkshire's bright future.

I have been employed with Berkshire Communities for the past 10 years and look forward to many more. Berkshire follows a set of Core Values that I believe in and follow daily. Unlike other multifamily real estate companies, Berkshire treats all employees like they are part of a family. The culture at Berkshire Communities enhances property performance and personal growth. I am personally honored that Berkshire has provided personal development and growth opportunities; without the support of this company and this family, I would not have been named the National Apartment Association Community Manager of the Year in 2014.
Success, growth, and support are some words that come to mind during my 17 years of employment with Berkshire Communities. Leaders with great success have been such an inspiration for me. We set the bar so high for our teams and somehow we find a way to not only meet these goals but exceed them. This can only be done with a great support team who are dedicated individuals sharing the same drive to reach higher than ever before. Learning from some of the most dedicated co-workers one could ever hope for allows me to become a better Berkshire employee and a better individual. Berkshire Communities success will only be as great as the employees and we have some of the best out there.

I love working for Berkshire! I have been in the property management industry for 24 years and this is the best company that I have worked for in my career. I joined Berkshire through the purchase of my community in 2010 and it was quickly evident that this company was doing it right - I am appreciated, heard and valued as an employee. Working for Berkshire, I have the tools and support to maintain and manage my community. We are always changing and growing and improving with the latest technology and trends. I love coming to work every day and being a part of the Berkshire family.
I am going on my 4th year with Berkshire Communities and it has met and exceeded all expectations I have had. I sought out this company based on the reputation it held for being an industry leader in innovation, growth, and employee and resident satisfaction. In my 14 years of experience in property management, I have never felt more “at home.” From the exemplary training department, to the extraordinary support team, from senior management, to my onsite team, every day I am challenged to be the best property manager I can be. Not only does Berkshire dedicate itself to the employees, but it is a company that truly hold its residents at the core and their satisfaction is always the number 1 priority. I am looking forward to being part of Berkshire’s future for many years to come.
Seven years ago I started with Berkshire as an Assistant Property Manager. During my first two years, Berkshire conditioned and educated me in a way no company had before. I was given the tools, encouragement and support from my mentors for the next step in my career. As I grew into the role of Property Manager, our Regional Managers continued to give praise, training, and feedback . At Berkshire we are family and from the highest tier of Management this is the heartbeat of our culture. Berkshire is not just a company, it is a way of life. There are so many leaders in Berkshire Communities that inspire me to become the best version of myself. I am continuously driven to elevate myself as a leader because Berkshire leads by example. You find passion in your craft when you have a company that instills the elements of success for you to build your own foundation to stand on. I have passion for my career and it is because I am Berkshire.
