March for Babies 2017- Team NRP

Over the past year and a half we have gained three new “NRP-sters” (pronounced as nerp-sters, yes–that is what we call them!) in the office. It’s always great to hear them giggling around the office and not to mention the “baby break” they provide our employees. Our love for babies is very obvious as well as our company’s culture of giving back, this year we have decided to team up and join the March for Babies in Reston, Virginia. On Sunday, May 7, 2017 Team NRP will be walking 4 miles around Reston Town Center to raise funds to support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. If you would like to join us in this charitable cause whether it be walking or monetarily please visit the following link: https://www.marchforbabies.org/Fundraising/Team?teamId=1285269&teamEventId=2761054&. We will be providing more details as we get closer to the walk. Thank you in advance and Go Team NRP!

NRP Gives Back Wall

For Bosses’ Day this year the team wanted to do something different to show our appreciation for NRP’s Leaders, Jim Foley, President and Betsy Johns, CFO. We recently painted our entire office and realized we had been living with undecorated walls! With our bare walls in mind and our creative juices flowing we came up with the “NRP Gives Back” wall. As you may have seen from previous posts, NRP loves to give back to our community and take part in helping others. To showcase Jim and Betsy’s influence to making NRP an active contributor to the community we gathered t-shirts from the past 5 years of participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and framed them. Jim and Betsy were not only surprised they were blown away with the idea and thought it is a great way to display who we are as a company. We even have plenty of space to add more t-shirts and other memorabilia of NRP’s participation in many more charitable events to come. Next time you stop by the office feel free to check it out!

NRP’s Haunted HALL-o-ween

It’s a sight to be seen at NRP this Halloween. On Friday, “The Hallway of Horrors” was brought to life…well, death by a few witches and warlocks of the west end office. If you were lucky enough to survive the haunted hallway and make it past the goblins and ghouls to actually eat! All guests were invited to dine on a deadly delicious “body” of food including brain, eyeballs, and fingers.  It was a spooktacular event that was truly impressive and enjoyed by all.

Happy Halloween from NRP!

NRP’s 1st Family Movie Night 2016

NRP’s 1st Family Movie Night was a huge hit! On Saturday, September 17th NRP employees enjoyed a nice evening outside with family and friends. The face painter and balloon artist were the most popular amongst the kids (some adults too!). After the BBQ was served and the ice cream truck handed out treats, it was time to start Zootopia on the outdoor big screen! It was a great company event to enjoy with all employees and their families! This event will definitely become a new tradition for years to follow. Thank you to everyone who participated and volunteered to make this event enjoyable–check out the pictures below!

It’s a great feeling…

Promoting from within.

Attracting, hiring and training quality associates are the three most important responsibilities of any Team Leader.  Having the honor of promoting from within is validation of a Team Leaders’ job well done.

And, it makes you feel great!

NRP’s Office Manager and Team Leader, Lili Martinez, CMCA, AMS, has proven this to be true a number of times since her arrival at NRP (as NRP’s very first Admin Assistant) six years ago.

Today, as NRP’s Office Manager, Lili oversees a team of five admin assistants as well as NRP’s Architectural Department.

In the Fall of 2012, Lili encouraged Michelle Baquero to join our Team as an Administrative Assistant.  This would be Michelle’s second job after graduating from Roanoke College with a Business Admin. degree.  Soon after her arrival Michelle expressed an interest in becoming a Portfolio Manager.  Michelle worked hard, listening intently as her Portfolio Manager April Ludtke and Lili Martinez taught her the “ins and outs” of Common Interest Community and office administrative management.

Michelle worked hard.  She volunteered to assist co-workers in the office whenever she saw a need.  She attended Board Meetings and Annual Meetings with her manager.  She attended classes with CAI, earning the CMCA and AMS designations before her second anniversary with NRP.

On Monday of last week Lili was honored to announce that Michelle had EARNED a promotion as NRP’s newest Portfolio Manager.

Congratulations Michelle!  Well Played!

But wait…there’s more!

Jessica “Jess” Schroeder joined our Team February 24, 2014.  Jessica came to NRP soon after after her December 2013 graduation from Slippery Rock University with a degree in Communications.

Jess was hired as an Architectural Inspector in NRP’s Arch Dept.  This position demands that an individual possess poise, patience, terrific communication and organizational skills and an above average knowledge base in the areas of common interest community governance and building architecture.

Well, suffice to say, Jess took to this new position much the same way a Pit bull would greet a pork chop.

Jess immediately proved to be a confident self starter, taking direction extremely well and asking for advice when she needed too.  She has proven to be dependable, has exhibited incredible customer service skills and seems to be completely unflappable.  Over the last two years Jess has been offered and has embraced additional responsibilities within the Arch Department numerous times.

Whenever Jess is asked to take on an extra task her favorite response is always, “Sure!  Not a problem!”

On Friday of last week Lili was honored to announce that Jess had EARNED a promotion, as well.  Jess is now the Manager of NRP’s Architectural Inspections and Resale Team.

Congratulations Jess!  Well Played!

Oh.  And, by the way, I think it would be fitting to announce Lili’s new honorary title, as well.  “Team Leader Extraordinaire

Thanks for validating, Lili !

Job Well Done x 2!!
