ResMan Recognized as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in Multifamily

ResMan Recognized as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in Multifamily

PLANO, Texas, Dec. 13, 2021 — ResMan®, a leading property management SaaS platform provider, has ranked #15 in the nationwide Top 50 Best Places to Work Multifamily®. The annual list of “Best Places to Work Multifamily®” is published by Multifamily Leadership and was announced at the Multifamily Awards show on December 8, 2021.

The multifamily industry, serving apartments and their residents, contributes more than $3.4 trillion to the economy annually, supporting more than 17.5 million jobs. As CEOs and executive teams create culture and innovation around the resident experience, employee engagement is seen as a key driver to meet multiple challenges. The Best Places to Work Multifamily® program recognizes those companies who have established and consistently foster outstanding workplace environments.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Multifamily Leadership and our own employees as a great place to work in this industry,” said Michael Dunn, chief executive officer, ResMan. “This is yet another proof point of our commitment to our team culture, and how our employees make ResMan a great place to work every day. I’m so grateful to everyone here for their relentless drive to succeed on behalf of our customers.”

The rigorous assessment process for this award evaluated each company’s employee policies and procedures as well as responses from the company’s employees.

“Employee engagement is actually a much more powerful indicator of organizational success than the size of the company, as employee engagement is tied to behavior and higher performance,” said Patrick Antrim, Founder and CEO of Multifamily Leadership. “Next generation leaders want to know their company is making a positive impact on the world. They want to know the vision and mission of the organization and that the leaders of the organization are going to drive that mission and vision. This is becoming increasingly more important as society is asking businesses to play a bigger role. The Best Places to Work Multifamily® companies have stepped up to play that role and will have a much bigger voice in the future.”

ResMan Further Enhances Executive Team With New CTO  

ResMan Further Enhances Executive Team With New CTO  

Technology veteran and original architect of ResMan’s platform, Nick Olsen, leads innovation of company’s solutions suite

PLANO, Texas, October 25th, 2021 – ResMan®, a leading property management SaaS platform provider, today announces that Nick Olsen has been promoted to Chief Technology Officer. In his new role Olsen will drive ResMan’s evolution to a full stack platform that allows multifamily and affordable housing managers to operate more efficiently. Olsen will be responsible for all technology and engineering resources that support ResMan’s software solutions, as well as research and development needed to maintain the company’s market-leading product positioning.  

“We are very fortunate to have Nick at the helm of our technology evolution,” said Michael Dunn, ResMan COO. “His skills and foresight have been instrumental in building out critical infrastructure and processes for our tech systems and teams for more than 10 years. Nick is a superior technologist with a deep understanding of real estate and property management needs.”

Olsen has been with ResMan since 2008, most recently as vice president of engineering, leading the innovation and evolution of ResMan to a leading cloud-based multi-tenant platform. During his tenure Olsen has led many strategic initiatives, building a distributed engineering organization, optimizing ResMan’s scale and performance in the cloud, developing an open API infrastructure enabling ResMan’s partner network, and integrating multiple acquired software companies.

“I’m very excited to take on the CTO role. As one of the original architects of the ResMan platform I’ve had the privilege of seeing this company grow from the beginning. I couldn’t be more proud of our teams that have developed this amazing market-leading product transforming the property management industry,” says Olsen. “Especially in light of our new partnership with Inhabit IQ, I look forward to the innovation and collaboration that will propel us into the next period of growth.”

ResMan Streamlines Average Income Test Set Aside for Tax Credit Properties  

New Capabilities Make it Easier Than Ever for Affordable Housing Providers to Stay in Compliance While Meeting the Needs of A Broader Range of Low-Income Renters

PLANO, Texas, October 14th, 2021 – ResMan®, a leading property management SaaS platform provider, today announced the addition of Average Income Test capabilities, making it easier than ever before for tax credit properties to ensure they stay compliant as they take advantage of this complex but impactful set aside.  

ResMan’s new and enhanced Average Income Test capabilities eliminate the complexity and worry about program compliance by calculating everything automatically within the platform and displaying program metrics right within the Compliance Center dashboard. The robust new capabilities handle all situations – including fixed and floating units as well as layered programs that use the set aside while helping properties minimizing potential compliance risks.  

Under the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program (LIHTC) Average Income Test set aside, properties may lease their rent-restricted units to tenants with up to 80 percent of the median gross income for the area, as long as the average income of tenants in rent-restricted units doesn’t exceed 60 percent of the area’s median gross income. This set aside provides greater flexibility for properties to serve individuals and families with very low-income levels, as well as those with income levels below the area average but above other LIHTC set-aside limits. While the Average Income Test set aside is a win-win for developers, owners, properties and applicants from a housing standpoint, these programs are more challenging to manage, requiring many property management companies and compliance departments to maintain complex spreadsheets to track required data. 

“As part of our commitment to the affordable housing industry, ResMan has taken action to implement best-in-class compliance tracking and management for this set aside because it offers such impactful benefits for residents, owners, investors and property management companies,” said ResMan’s SVP of Product, Janel Ganim. “Our involvement in the industry uniquely positions us to stay on top of any technology changes that may be necessary as the final regulations are handed down, so our customers can be confident that our solution will allow them to stay compliant with the Average Income Test set aside, as well as all other LIHTC regulation changes that may come in the future.”  

The ResMan team will participate in the NAHMA Biannual Top Issues in Affordable Housing Conference to be held virtually October 19-22, and will showcase the new Average Income Test capabilities in the Fall Affordable Housing Update Webinar scheduled for November 2 at 1 p.m. CT. 

ResMan’s Elizabeth Francisco to Moderate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel at Upcoming FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show

ResMan’s Elizabeth Francisco to Moderate Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel at Upcoming FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show  

Plano, TX, October 6, 2021 – ResMan®, a leading property management SaaS platform provider, today announced that ResMan President, Elizabeth Francisco, will be moderating a panel presentation at the Florida Apartment Association’s 2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show. Titled “Trailblazing Your Way to the Table with Confidence,” the session is scheduled for Thursday, October 14th at 3:15 p.m.  

Panelists include Sonya Rosenbach, CFO of Allied Orion Group; Antoinette Williams, Regional Vice President for Carroll Management Group; and Jimmy Chestnut, Vice President for Incore Residential.  Francisco’s focus will be to bring all perspectives to the table to share challenges faced, mistakes made, and ultimately how individuals successfully navigated obstacles to become senior leaders in their organizations. Attendees will gain helpful insights into how the panelists prepared for senior leadership differently as well as what may be holding them back in their own career growth.  

“The annual FAA conference is one of my favorite events. I’m excited to see everyone in person again, and am looking forward to moderating a discussion on a topic that often does not receive enough attention, given how critical it is to our industry,” says Francisco. “The number of women and minorities represented in leadership roles in multifamily and commercial real estate is well below 20% for women and single digits for minorities. The goal of this session is to share what we have learned to help guide and inspire the next generation of industry professionals so we can begin to see progress towards more equitable representation.”     

In addition to moderating a session, ResMan team members will also be showcasing their industry-leading property management platform in booth #307. Highlights include ResMan Websites and ResMan CRM; new budgeting and payments capabilities; an Investor Management solution; as well as expanded Affordable Housing capabilities including electronic signatures, rural development compliance and support for the average income test set-aside. Those interested in seeing the platform in action, can pre-register for a demo. Visitors to the booth can also enter to win a $1,000 ultimate travel gift card.
