Our Team's Testimonials

Why I Came

Team testimonal

Jose - Maintenance Director - 3 Years

CWS purchased a property that I was working at in Houston, Texas. I decided to give them a shot and stayed at the property. I feel like I made the correct decision because of the way that CWS treats their employees. Over the past three years I've worked at several different property that CWS manages and have noticed the consistency in how well employees are treated. I value that in the company I work with and that is why I am here to stay.

Why I Grew My Career with CWS

Team testimonalTiffany — Regional Director — 11 Years

I started my career with CWS 11 years ago as a Leasing Consultant. I've had the opportunity to grow my career through the years, and I continued my growth with a transfer from North Carolina to Atlanta, GA, where I currently serve as the Regional Director. It was a natural fit for me to grow my career with CWS. We live by our values each and every day, we have fun, and there is always an opportunity for learning and development. This truly is a second family who genuinely cares.

Why I Stayed

Team testimonalBob — Maintenance Director — 15 Years

I started my career at CWS as a Porter for a property in Austin, TX. I enjoy being part of a maintenance team, but I never pictured myself being a Maintenance Director. After a conversation with the VP of Operations, and a bit of deliberation, I accepted a Maintenance Director position. Eight years later, I am still loving the job! CWS is a company that invests in the success of its employees, and I am glad that I've made this company my home.

 

Team testimonalJacqueline — Regional Director — 5 Years

CWS goes the extra mile when training their employees, so that we are able to gain knowledge in multiple areas of the property management industry. During my time with CWS, I've increased my knowledge base in areas such as accounting and risk management. I really enjoy working with the people at CWS because there is always a positive support team by my side regardless of the situation.
