“The first thing we thought that was really important with our company was number one we protect our employees we made lots of adjustments within our own office to do that in order to serve our residents. Our residents we have found the best thing we can do with them right now is to communicate to them and keep them updated as much as we can with what we are learning”. says Kelley Lind JK Property Manager
