Sherry W. Taylor, V.P. of Training
Atlanta National Office, Berkshire Property Advisors
I began my career with Berkshire Property Advisors almost 20 years ago as an Assistant Property Manager at one of our properties. I have always believed in our company culture and the emphasis we put on our employees. We believe in giving our employees the training and tools they need to be successful in their careers, enabling them to advance in our organization. Through hard work and commitment to our core values, I am now the Vice President of Training. The Training Department is a group of highly professional individuals that works as team to ensure that our employees succeed. We continually look for ways to use technology to enhance our internal communications in addition to our communications with our current and future residents. The respect we have for each other and the drive for excellence within each of our employees is one of the many things that sets Berkshire apart from other companies.

Senior management at Berkshire has developed a culture that rewards entrepreneurial thinking along with the discipline that is necessary in an institutional advisory firm. Berkshire is truly a company that tries to ‘get it right’ by applying resources and support to the initiatives that can bring the company to a leadership position in the multifamily industry. This industry has traditionally been slow to adopt technology but Berkshire has made a quantum leap in the past few years by embracing the internet as a means of reaching our potential residents and servicing our current residents. Our goal is to represent Berkshire in a very positive way when dealing with anyone who may come in contact with the company including investors, vendors, residents and our employees. I’m proud to be part of a company that has built such a solid reputation.

I recently celebrated my 20th year with Berkshire and with this milestone event I reflected on so many opportunities that Berkshire has given to me. I began my career as a leasing consultant and quickly moved through the ranks, being promoted to a District Manager, six years later. The last 14 years, I have enjoyed being in the position of Training Director, a perfect fit for me. Berkshire has been so supportive of both my professional and personal needs, allowing me to balance my responsibilities as a working mother and spouse. To feel appreciated, rewarded, challenged, educated, supported to name a few, is what Berkshire offers me and why I chose this company. I look forward to continuing to grow with Berkshire.

I just celebrated my 13th anniversary with Berkshire and I couldn't be happier! I truly believe that Berkshire is the best property management company in the nation. The reasons are very simple. We take care of our employees, our properties and our residents. We have high standards and high expectations and we provide the support and tools necessary to be successful. We have great leaders who know that people make the difference in the company. They understand the importance of happy employees and do so many things to show their appreciation of a job well done. We are one of the few property management companies who have many long term employees, which says a lot about our company. We enjoy our work and are proud to be a part of Berkshire. It is a first class company!

During my tenure with Berkshire it has been a privilege to work with so many outstanding individuals. While other management companies know their employees have commitment and passion for what they do, Berkshire employees take it an extra step. That step is knowing that whenever any problem is presented to an employee, a satisfactory solution will be achieved. Developing a culture by trusting & empowering people to do the right thing each and every day did not come overnight, it came through communicating clearly what is expected. It is an honor to be involved with individuals from the site level all the way to the corporate office who have the same passion and commitment for excellence. It has been a privilege to work with a team that always thinks and anticipates ahead of the curve.
