“If you can live in it I have managed it” Kathleen Bernardi says as she reflects on her 10 year career in residential property and facilities management. Bernardi has managed everything from single family houses to large apartment communities. Bernardi’s property experience is strengthened by extensive facilities and maintenance management experience across all types of commercial properties.

Her specialty is property turnarounds and has always exceeded property owner expectations during the turnaround period. “Being a property manager is like being a tight rope walker” Bernardi jokes, “you have to walk a fine line between providing excellent customer service and holding tenants responsible to their lease obligations.”
