Jana Hurley, Assistant Vice President, University Life George Mason University

Stephen Adams, Senior Vice President, LaSalle Investment Management

“The transition from the prior management to Campus Advantage was seamless. Bringing in a highly trained management staff and working closely with our staff, the Campus Advantage team was able to provide no interruptions to any levels of service to either employees or residents at these properties. The positive changes began to occur almost immediately.”

Mary Spilde, President, Lane Community College

“Our University takes great pride in making decisions based on the total well-being of our students, and we are pleased to find a corporate partner that places as much emphasis on the overall student experiences as we do.”

“We engaged Campus Advantage … to complete a market analysis and project feasibility for a new development at the University of Minnesota.

Thomas Lund, Vice President Real Estate Development, The Opus Group

“When Campus Advantage took over the management of the property, the occupancy was below 85% and delinquency was high… Campus Advantage took over management of this property and the improvement has been significant… the property achieved 100% occupancy for the first time in its history. This occupancy increase was despite an across the board rent increase…”

Linda Carter, Executive Director, West Jackson Community Development Corporation

“Before we ever hired your company, you and your team gave me an honest assessment of our project: We were not actively creating a ‘renewal’ market for our project, that we were not maximizing our rents and that our turnaround would take two to three years as you developed a great reputation. You were dead-on right on all points.”

Terry Mitchell, Partner, The Sanctuary Lofts Momark Housing

“The on-site staff has been phenomenal. They have been faced with strict financial constraints yet still managed to creatively program and co-vend with local merchants to deliver strong programs and incentives to our residents.”

John Fina, President, The Seasons Partners, LLC
