Winner Chosen in Apartment Industry Careers Competition

Oh My Apartment · Mar 26, 2013

The National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) has selected Kelly Tabolt of Winn Residential as the winner of its 2013 “Get Reel” Career Video Challenge, which invites people working in the industry to share with others what they enjoy most about their jobs and the many career opportunities to be found in multifamily housing.

NAAEI conducts the contest every February as part of its national Apartment Careers Month. This year was the third year for the contest, and organizers received dozens of entries from around the country.

Tabolt said she decided to enter the contest because she loved the idea of being able to promote the apartment industry. She started working in the industry in 2006 after graduating from college. She took a position as an assistant resident director at Syracuse University and was later hired by Winn Residential as a leasing consultant for The Timbers at Fort Drum in New York.

“When I was in high school and in college, I was not sure where I would end up in a career with a degree in theatre,” she said. “If I can help others who are unsure of their future find their place in this world in the housing industry, I will have succeeded.

When Tabolt made her winning video, she was leasing manager for Winn Residential’s Mountain Community Homes at Fort Drum. On April 1, she starts her new job as property manager for the company’s Tierra Vista Communities at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo. She said she hopes she can continue to excel in the apartment industry as she works her way up the career ladder and meets new challenges.

“I love making sure soldiers and families have homes, and I love working with my staff,” she said. “I believe in holistic and servant leadership. I love forming relationships with my staff members and helping them grow into the most amazing people they can be.”

Members of NAAEI’s Apartment Careers Month Committee reviewed all of the contest entries and selected Tabolt’s as the winner. As winner, Tabolt will receive registration, hotel accommodations and airfare to the 2013 National Apartment Association Education Conference and Exposition that will be held this summer in San Diego.

Tabolt’s winning entry may be viewed on Youtube. Information on apartment industry careers may be found by visiting http://www.apartmentcareerhq.org.
