Offering more services, growing our staff and service area! Honesty, Integrity & Transparency!

“HSH Property Management is growing and we are now able to offer a wider range of services than ever before!  We have recently picked up 6 commercial properties in the downtown corridor of Oregon City, for T5 Equities!  We also are now managing a multi-family property in The Dalles, for Bennett Investment.  Thank you T5 Equities and Bennett Investment for trusting in us to manage your properties for you!

Growth is something that HSH Property Management is no stranger to.  Since we began in September of 2013, we have grown from 2 employees to 20 employees.  In terms of how many units we manage, we have grown over 300%!  The thing that we value most and the reason why we believe we will be successful is that we offer a personal touch to all of our employees, owners, tenants and vendors alike.  We know that people make the world go around and the relationships we make are valuable to us.

I’d like to tell you about our employees, and why they are so important to us.  Our employees are our first customers.  If we treat them well, then they will treat people that we work with well.  HSH is committed to providing a non-threatening work environment in which people can be taught, nurtured, encouraged and protected while helping them to realize their full potential...whether they continue with HSH or not.  We believe in educating our staff so that they can offer the best possible service to our clients.   We believe in teamwork, and everyone in this company has a voice.  All employees have the same opportunity to achieve their goals and to advance in this company.

In the following weeks, I’ll introduce you to our staff, and I’ll begin with my story with HSH Property Management.

I began working for HSH Property Management when there were just two original employees.  I was hired to help out around the office for just 10 hours a week. In fact, I was hired to work from home getting our website set up, filing, and just some general office organization.  Within 6 months, I was working full time in the office, and had learned just about everything there was to learn in order to manage the properties that we had.  Coming from a varied office management background, I didn’t have specific property management experience, so the company paid for me to take a course on property management and to get my property management license.  Now, I am just a few hours away from obtaining my license.  Never have I worked for a company in which the owners cared so much about the people that work for them.  I feel blessed to be a part of a company where I truly have a voice.  Now I am the Vice President and I am responsible for our staff of 20 people, and I feel personally responsible for their well-being.  I strive to make sure that all of our staff knows that they have every opportunity to grow with this company and that they have a voice.  I am so grateful to work for a company where people, good values, and a drive to succeed are all equally important to the owners. 

In January, we hired another person to come in and help around the office for about 10 hours a week (what I started at just 1 year earlier), and now that person is full time and we have hired another person to come in for 15 hours a week.  It is amazing to watch this company grow and to thrive!  Sure we have had some growing pains, but the key that we focus on is that you can’t have growth without pain.  The important thing is that we learn from the pain and use that learning to make our company stronger.
