Sarah either is, or has been, the go-to person for everything at Jennings Group. She started as a temp at the front desk in 1995, and within a couple of years was the Office Manager. Over the next ten years she had experience in all areas of company operations, and became the chief problem solver, eventually moving into property management. The breadth of her knowledge about Jennings Group. and the property management business means she’s almost always doing more than one thing at a time. “Multi-tasking is the same whether it’s property management or being the mother of three.” This also means she excels at customer service, whether it’s for clients or consumers, and no matter what the issue. “I like being in a position where I can both hold people accountable, and also create opportunities for folks.” Sarah earned her broker’s license in 2007 and is now the Multi-family Property Manager, a position that uses every aspect of her background. “I love what I do because it’s always changing, different every day. We work in a very family-like environment, and I’m dedicated to the company. Jennings has played a large role in my direction in life and is a big part of who I am today”.

Kathy’s background includes the diverse areas of real estate, accounting, and art and interior design. “I’m constantly redoing my own home. It’s my canvas.” Her work background, though, fits well with her current position. She had extensive real estate background in California before coming to Oregon, and has worked in accounting for other local real estate and development companies. Coming to Jennings Group. in 2003, she gradually moved from accounting and processing maintenance work orders to managing single family properties since 2005. “We handle up to 325 properties, and I love it. I get to be more personally involved with the owners and with the tenants. I get to watch the kids grow up.” Kathy has the same appreciation for her workplace as her colleagues do. “I’m really proud of our reputation. We have a lot of in-house rentals and repeat tenants because we treat both them and the home they live in with respect. Most of our business is word of mouth, and because of our reputation, we stay pretty busy.”
