Continental Quick FAQs — Multifamily Community Career

The Path to Success Can Begin at Home

Many Continental Properties team members started out as Springs Apartment residents. Having lived in the multifamily community gave them unique perspectives and insights into what’s required to serve the needs of residents. Meet Brad and Jennifer:

“I’m never bored.



A one-time Springs resident in Charleston, South Carolina, Brad formed a connection with the on-site maintenance supervisor and asked about job opportunities. Brad always enjoyed working with his hands but didn’t have experience in the multifamily industry. Because of his natural abilities and eagerness to learn, he was hired as a maintenance technician.

The maintenance supervisor mentored him and Continental Properties paid for further training in targeted fields, such as appliance repair, heating and cooling, and other related courses. Brad always dreamed of living in Colorado, so when a new property was being built, he pursued the opportunity. Today, he is a maintenance supervisor in Johnstown, Colorado and enjoys the abundant outdoor life during his free time.

“I own my career and feel empowered.



Thirteen years ago, Jennifer was a typical resident at a Springs Luxury Apartment community in Tampa, Florida, and she enjoyed interacting with other residents and staff. Her outgoing personality got noticed and she was asked to consider being a part of the Continental Properties team. She didn’t have industry experience, but she worked in various fields that required strong customer service skills and was ambitious.

She joined the team as a Leasing Associate and her drive to succeed helped her quickly advance within the company. She and her family enjoy exploring and trying new things, so when asked to lead teams in other states, Jennifer jumped at the opportunity. She eventually became a property manager and an area manager and, today, is a regional director overseeing properties and team members in several states.
