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!
