At Athena Property Management, we have always believed in the mantra that our two main business priorities in shopping center management are to collect the rent and cut the grass. While these may sound like simple tasks, they are the foundation of maintaining a thriving and visually appealing commercial shopping center. In our pursuit of excellence, we recently introduced a groundbreaking training initiative – the “Cut the Grass” program.

The Cut the Grass initiative is not just about literal grass-cutting; it’s a comprehensive training program designed to equip our team with a deep understanding of the intricate details involved in commercial property management. We believe that by investing in our team’s knowledge and skills, we are not only enhancing our own capabilities but also delivering unparalleled service to our property owners.

To bring this initiative to life, we collaborated with a lineup of esteemed vendors who are experts in their respective fields. These partners included day porter services, maintenance professionals, landscaping experts, electrical professionals, fire safety specialists, and roofing expers. Each vendor played a crucial role in imparting their knowledge and insights to our team.

During the training sessions, our team had the opportunity to delve into the intricacies of various aspects of property management. From pressure washing and street sweeping to fire sprinkler and alarm testing, electrical work, irrigation, and roof repairs, our team gained invaluable insights into what it takes to keep our properties in top-notch condition.

We extend our sincere gratitude to the vendors who joined hands with us for this initiative:

  1. Eclipse Lighting
  2. J&J Maintenance
  3. Fortis Fire
  4. Tecta Roofing
  5. GTZ Landscape
  6. All Pro
  7. United Paving
  8. Arbor Group
  9. Outlets at Lake Elsinore

These partners either hosted specific segments of the training or contributed to the emergency kits provided to all our operations teams. This collaboration not only strengthened our relationship with these esteemed vendors but also emphasized the spirit of teamwork and shared commitment to excellence.

The Cut the Grass initiative is a testament to our dedication to continuous improvement. While many property management companies focus solely on the basics, at Athena, we believe in setting new standards for our industry. This innovative training program is not something commonly seen in our field, and we are proud to lead the way.

The Cut the Grass training initiative marks a significant milestone in our journey towards excellence. Athena Property Management is constantly seeking ways to grow our staff and stay at the forefront of industry innovation. We are not just managing properties; we are elevating standards, embracing innovation, and ensuring that every center under our care stands out in its visual appeal and operational efficiency.

Thank you again to our vendors and partners for joining us on this exciting venture, and here’s to many more initiatives that set Athena Property Management apart in the world of commercial property management.
