Team Thrive Volunteer Day at Redmond's Old Fire House Teen Center

A group of Thrivers from our home office and several different communities across the PNW gathered on a Friday afternoon last month to help refresh the Old Fire House Teen Center in Redmond. Located just next door to one of our newest lease-up communities, Station House, the teen center received a full day of TLC in the form of landscaping, a brand new fence, new furniture, cleaning, pressure washing and both interior and exterior paint projects.

HUGE thanks to all who participated, and to our vendor partners who donated supplies and time to this project as well:

Team Thrive is already looking forward to our next volunteer day. 🙌👷‍♀️🔨🎨

Thrive is One of Washington's Best Workplaces Again in 2019!

Team Thrive is excited to have made the list of Washington’s 100 Best Workplaces for the third consecutive year!

Each year, the Puget Sound Business Journal anonymously surveys full-time employees across hundreds of workplaces in Washington State, grading each response on factors like benefits, work environment, rewards/recognition, communication, responsibility and decision-making, and their opinion of executive leadership.

Thrive now competes in the “large company” category (based on number of employees), alongside some of the state’s well-known giants like Zillow, Redfin and Amazon. We ranked as #7 in this category in 2018.

We’re excited to attend the Washington’s Best event in August to find out where we placed on the list this year! 🏆🎉🏨

Thrive Enters Kent, WA Market with Management and Renovation of 345-Home Community

We are excited to welcome Waterford at the Lakes to the Thrive family! A recent RISE acquisition, the community is situated on 16.85 acres and includes over 30 individual buildings. Waterford’s renovation will begin almost immediately with improvements being made throughout the property that will positively impact residents from day one.

Our transition team ensured that the change in management, even occurring on the final day of the month (May 31), was seamless for residents and team members alike with a new website launched and online pay/resident portal live before midday. You can view the new website at waterfordatthelakes.com.

The RISE purchase was also covered in the city’s local newspaper, the Kent Reporter, on the day of the transition.

Waterford is the first of three properties in Kent to transition to Thrive before mid-June this year, as we continue to grow our presence south of Seattle.

One Day, Three Towns, Three New Thrive Communities 🍃

Thrive Communities is on the move again! Our team is so pleased to welcome 3 new communities to our portfolio:

Sutter’s Square Apartments - 94 Homes in Everett, WA

Vista Ridge Apartments - 91 Homes in Issaquah, WA

Westview Village Apartments - 120 Homes in Renton, WA

Thrive transitioned all three properties in one day under the leadership of Sr. Regional Manager Kendehl Rojanasthien and Regional Manager Robert Gorrin, with extensive support from the Operations and Accounting teams. Each community was service, lease and payment ready on day one ensuring residents were minimally impacted. Additionally, Thrive pre-developed 3 beautiful new websites for these communities that were launched as part of the transition - ensuring our tradition of Peerless Presentation is carried over to digital first impressions as well.

As Thrive’s portfolio continues to grow, our transition team, made up of thrivers from multiple departments, has developed a process to ensure that typical post transitional lag is minimized at every opportunity.

Welcome to Thrive, and congratulations to our new team members and those who received promotions as a result of these three transitions!

Multifamily Property Transitions Near Seattle Propel Thrive’s October Growth

This week, Thrive Communities wrapped up its second property transition of October, welcoming Copper Creek Apartments to the Thrive family – a 181 home community located in Milton, WA. Just weeks before, Thrive transitioned Alaire Apartments – a 357 home community in Renton, WA. Both properties add a combined 538 homes to Thrive’s portfolio in under 30 days.

The success and efficiency of these transitions can be attributed to Thrive’s award-winning property management team led by expert Regional Managers, combined with a unique commitment to ensuring property transitions are service, lease, and payment ready within 24 hours of a management transition.

Both properties are candidates for value-add renovations, which will be managed by Thrive’s redevelopment team to deliver exceptional results for both residents and ownership.

A special welcome to the Copper Creek and Alaire staff joining #teamthrive during these transitions!
