LAKEVILLE, Minn. - (October 27, 2016)
Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, a full-service national real estate firm, is proud to announce Anna Javellana, property manager at Southfork Townhomes in Lakeville, Minn., was named manager of the year by the Minnesota Multi Housing Association (MHA) at its 2016 Multi Housing Achievement in Design, Advertising and Community Support (MADACS) awards ceremony, which took place last month.
Held annually, the MADACS awards recognize owners and associates who have made significant contributions to multi-housing marketing and management in Minnesota. The MADACS awards gala, the most prestigious event hosted by the MHA, celebrates positive, innovative, community– and industry-enhancing accomplishments.
“Anna’s work at Southfork absolutely exemplifies the excellent level of customer service and detail-oriented approach Draper and Kramer’s residential management division is known for,” said Deanne Logan, regional property manager for Chicago-based Draper and Kramer. “While no one appreciates her leadership and dedication more than we do, we’re thrilled to see her hard work and accomplishments recognized by the Minnesota MHA and others in the industry.”
In her role as property manager of Southfork Townhomes, Javellana oversees 272 rental townhome units in a community that features a natural, wooded setting and extensive on-site amenities, including an oversized outdoor pool and a recently renovated clubhouse where the management team frequently hosts exclusive resident events. Under her management, the community has experienced increases in average occupancy, lease renewal rates, SatisFacts resident survey scores and Apartment Ratings scores. Javellana’s attention to detail and clear communication with residents was key in ensuring a number of major projects in the past year went smoothly, including complete landscape reconstruction, resurfacing of parking lots and driveways, extensive concrete replacement and new roofs and insulation for all buildings.
Logan noted Javellana is also known for organizing the community’s annual holiday party, which features live reindeer and sleigh rides. “It’s one of the most popular events for our residents and they’re still talking about last year’s party almost a year later,” said Logan.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to be part of our residents’ lives and help make Southfork Townhomes feel like home for them every day,” said Javellana. “I’m honored to be acknowledged by my peers in an industry I find so personally satisfying, and I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve found in this field and with Draper and Kramer.”
A graduate of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, Javellana joined Draper and Kramer in 2014 and has more than six years of experience in property management and leasing. Previously, she was named a top leasing consultant at the 2012 MADACS awards. Javellana is a member of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), and holds IREM’s Accredited Residential Manager certification.
