Roscoe Corporate in Austin Builds Community at Foundation Communities Supper Club

 

Once a quarter during 2017, Roscoe will be conducting a ‘Supper Club’ for Foundation Communities residents at their Capital Studios location! These Supper Clubs are potluck style events, where volunteers bring warm nutritious meals to the property, serve their meals to 20-40 of the residents, and join the residents in dining and fellowship afterward for a conversation.

This Tuesday, employees from our corporate office in downtown Austin, TX served their first meal for 28 Capital Studio residents. These residents are living in efficiency units with limited funds and kitchen space, and our staff were thrilled to meet and serve their downtown Austin neighbors.

Regional Manager Danielle Kriegsman says:

“It was a really fun activity to do with my coworkers. I’m glad I got to meet our neighbors and I hope we keep doing it!”

While Laura Newman, our Human Resources advisor, shares that her favorite moment was when:

“I got to talk to this really interesting resident who had been a caterer for the Texas State government. He had met presidents and worked with Governors and their First Ladies, even Lady Bird Johnson. It was great to hear his stories and learn more about Texas history!”

The next Supper Club will be in mid-June! If you’re interested in learning more about Foundation Communities and want to volunteer yourself, visit these pages for more information.

Roscoe Properties Supports the Human Rights Campaign

 

Roscoe Properties believes that diversity builds community, so last Saturday, January 28, 2017, we were proud to support the Human Rights Campaign Austin Chapter at the 2017 Gala. Held at the J.W. Marriot, this dinner was the biggest and by far the most successful Gala HRC Austin has ever had. Roscoe sponsored and filled three tables with our employees and their guests, who donated generously to help HRC’s fight towards full equality.

Houston Properties Honor Residents

 

The staff at Memorial Towers and The Grove at White Oak (both located in Houston, TX) know that they manage more than just physical buildings. Instead, they are stewards of peoples’ homes. Our employees are deeply appreciative of the responsibility and trust that their residents have given them. As a way to thank these residents for this trust, the teams have created a program called Above & Beyond Residents. Each month, a resident at their communities is recognized for going above and beyond: acting with deep kindness, serving their community, or making sacrifices. These residents receive a commendation and a special gift basket catered to their service or need.

Memorial Towers Property Manager Destiny Barraza shares:

We chose [one resident] this month because his father was just diagnosed with cancer and the resident had to transfer to a 2×2 to have a place for his dad to stay. He had been so overwhelmed and busy we wanted to treat him to dinner and movie to just relax for a few hours. At the Grove we chose a couple who is having a baby, and we bought them a gift basket of baby goods. For February at Memorial Towers we are honoring our first responders, as we have 3 HPD officers and a Fire Marshal.

Each of these residents has transformed their apartments into homes with their service, and Roscoe Properties is proud to serve them.

above & beyond residents

Roscoe is Growing – Introducing our New Recruiting Team!

 

Roscoe Properties is constantly growing. As we acquire new communities and portfolios, we need high performing staff ready to take on any challenge. To meet this increasing need, we created a new department: Recruiting. With a combined 30 years of staffing, recruiting, and management experience, these four team members have hit the ground running.

New Department- Recruiting

(Clockwise from top R) – Jessica Wheeler, Liz Frugé, Amie Gardner, and Brianne Neal

Our recruiting team members are:

Brianne Neal – Corporate Recruiter

I was living in a Roscoe community in San Antonio when I fell in love with the Roscoe culture. I knew I had to find a place in the Roscoe Team. As a recruiting coordinator with 4 years of experience in recruiting and 2 years of experience in property management, I thought it was fate when I saw the Recruiter opening.

Jessica Wheeler – Corporate Recruiter

I come from 10 years of sales and management. I started my career in hospitality where I managed a team of 20 in the restaurant industry for 4 years. I then transitioned to Mattress Firm for close to 5 years where I saw 3 promotions and lead a team of 12. I also acquired my MBA while working for the company.  I transitioned to staffing and worked with Robert Half for a year in a fast-paced work environment. I had heard amazing things about Roscoe and wanted to make the change into corporate recruiting.

Amie Gardner – Corporate Recruiter

I am new to the property management industry and have learned so much in my first two months at Roscoe. After completing my degree while working in the Hospitality industry, I spent five years in the staffing industry in both Houston and Austin. I am very excited to be working with the Houston and Austin teams as Roscoe grows!

Liz Frugé – Recruiting Director

I started my career in retail with Nordstrom in 2005 where I managed, led and was responsible for recruiting and retaining my team. The next step in my career was to the health care industry as a sales leader, which led me into recruiting for almost 3 years. I was lucky enough to join Roscoe, where we recruit new talent to grow our dynamic company. Our goal is to recruit top talent for Roscoe Properties and support the company’s growth and continued success. I can’t wait to see where 2017 will take us!

Looking for a career change? These women are ready to match you to your ideal path with Roscoe. Already a Roscoe Properties employee?

Stella at the Medical Center Hosts Dog Adoption Event!

 

To showcase our pet-friendly apartment policy, the terrific team at Stella at the Medical Center in Houston, TX recently hosted a dog adoption event for their residents. Working with Mutt Mesh Animal Rescue, they hosted a mini pet fair with pet-centered vendors, gave the 13 dogs an opportunity to socialize and play in the newly completed Bark Park, and help four of them be adopted by current residents!

stella-adoption-event-2016-12-pet-friendly-apartments

Leasing Agent Robert Cobb shares:

The plan was for the adoption to start at 12:00pm on Saturday but we had about 15 people waiting since 11:30am. Once the dogs arrived and the kennels were placed, we had upwards of 30 community members and their dogs visiting the park to meet and greet with Mutt Mesh … The residents showed a lot of interest and excitement for the adoption party. After the event [they] couldn’t get enough. They show continued support for more events like this one, many of which are requesting for Mutt Mesh to come back on a quarterly schedule … I want all of West Houston to know about our adoption parties.

Photographer Rebecca Botello was present to document the day. Thanks so much Robert (and the rest of the Stella staff) for your hard work! So are you an animal lover looking for an apartment in West Houston? Check out Stella’s website and find your purrfect new home!
