CPMs take the measure of COVID-19: Part 2

No one escaped the challenges of COVID-19. We sat down recently with Angela Aeschliman, CPM®, CCIM, to get a sense of how her firm, the Missner Group, weathered those challenges. Aeschliman is senior VP of Property and Asset Management, and she reports two major approaches that eased much pandemic-driven pain: a close working relationship with her tenants, and the firm’s growing focus on technology. We also asked her to compare the past year in the trenches to the observations made in Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2021, the annual state of the industry study from PwC and the Urban Land Institute. (In Part 1, we did much the same from the multifamily perspective with Barry Blanton, CPM®, IREM’s 2021 president-elect, and founder of Blanton Turner AMO® in Seattle.)

IREM® has been blessed with many remarkable leaders throughout its history – individuals who’ve been thought leaders in the industry, have been role models who inspire others, and those who’ve elevated the real estate management profession through their business and personal lives. At the top of this pantheon was IREM’s 1981 President, Eugene J. (Gene) Burger, CPM®, CRE, who recently was lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Listening, learning: A journey

I thought I knew. Love, respect, kindness, understanding. Justice. But I learned a lot this last year. Indeed, it completely floored me how much we all have to learn, how much there was to explore, how much wasn’t talked about, how much we need to listen. Powerful, important stories. It became clear that this cultural journey, this Moment, was about long-tolerated and accepted norms, how changes to American culture won’t happen without significant work.

COVID-19 challenges are shared with multifamily managers industry-wide

COVID-19 challenged everyone who manages real estate. But how did the 2020 experiences of IREM members measure up against those of members of the National Apartment Association (NAA)? You can find out by looking into NAA’s recent poll of C-suite executives and onsite building staff. The survey, conducted by J Turner Research, went to 1,651 participants. Here’s a sampling of the findings.
