Life as an Apartment Manager...

If, 8 months ago, you had told me I would been doing this, I would have called you insane.
But, here I am. My Mom wished it so.

I'm an apartment manager.

Although my parents have owned the Sands Apartments for over 20 years, and I have lived at the Sands for over 5, I had been only very peripherally involved in the family business.

That changed last year, when a long time manager decided to pursue other interests, and the 2 subsequent managers lasted mere months each. I was running for a seat on Kamloops City Council and we needed more stability and oversight at the Sands.

I loved the Internet Training business. It was very hard to let it go. But, I needed a more stable income while running for and perhaps sitting on City Council.

So now, I spend my weeks coordinating renting suites, maintaining the buildings, and looking for new ways to making my tenants' home lives easier. At the ends and beginnings of the month, I spend my days collecting rents.

I enjoy this, and see myself being involved with it for the forseeable future.

I will arrive Kamloops at beginning of June and attend TRU. I am just wondering where is your apartment located? Thank you.

What's the rent like? How are the tenants? It's always good to have stable income while serving the public.

Hi, I am looking for a 1 bedroom apartment, for Aug, the earlier the better. I would prefer something that is not on the ground floor, but at this point I will take anything. I will be moving from Ontario and I need to find something ASAP. Any info or pictures would really help me, because I most likely will not be able to see the apartment first. Thank You I look forward to hearing from you.
