Heather joined Beck and Company in August of 2003 as the company’s first true receptionist. The company had grown almost exponentially and her presence was greatly welcomed—both by staff and customers alike.
As the company continued to grow, Heather’s contributions in customer service grew as well. Almost a “concierge” for our clients, she’s become more than a receptionist, understanding multi-facets of the property management business, and many times answering problems and questions without a property manager ever stepping in.
Along with the growth of her position came the management of the resale division and she has become the favored resale coordinator of most title companies. She, also, quickly filled the position of senior administrative assistant, understanding the needs of the company and staff, which in turn have kept things running smoothly for both managers and clients.
Her previous years in business included a decade of teaching children, and then moving into the fast paced world of customer service and billing in the medical field, all contributing to her success and rapid management of her areas of growth with Beck and Company.
