Can you describe your role at Abington House?
Jennifer :
My title is the Assistant General Manager, which consists of all the administrative work necessary to maintain the building and keep it running smoothly. A big part of that is working closely with the Resident Manager and our Leasing team to welcome our new residents, introduce the amenities, set up and assist with their preferences. Beyond those duties I strive to connect with each resident and listen to what matters to them. It’s important to me that they know I respect their needs and concerns.

Jennifer :
I have so many wonderful stories but one of my favorites is when a resident rented an apartment as a pied-a-terre at A/H as a surprise for his wife who had wanted a place in NYC again. He asked me to act like I was showing the apartment to her then I handed her the keys from him. She was so surprised and definitely a memorable experience!
