As we enter the final quarter of the year and my last few months as the AANC President, there is much to reflect on. Our industry in this great state has continued to persevere despite the roller-coaster ride of the last couple of years. Challenges such as supply chain issues, escalating expenses, and workplace logistics, have been coupled with the benefits of high occupancies, escalating rent rates, and unprecedented property valuations. It’s truly been an unprecedented time (both good and bad) in our business. Absent the resilience, comradery and supportive nature of those in our industry, it could have been a much more difficult time for us all. I feel a great sense of gratitude for that. The multifamily industry, more so than any other industry of which I am aware, embodies an attitude of “we’re all in this together.” For that, I am grateful to all of you.

Upon graduating, Nana returned home before diving headfirst into the job hunt. After considering working in a lab, she applied for a job as a leasing consultant with an apartment management company in Fayetteville, NC. After four years in the multifamily industry, as she transitioned into her next role at a new company, Nana realized that she had found her career in the industry – and hasn’t looked back.

Community Manager at Southwood Realty
Joel Nevarez’s path to the multifamily industry was long and a little unconventional, but he gained countless valuable skills along the way. Joel grew up in the small farming town of Ashton, Idaho, where his family ran a potato farm, and he learned the values of hard work and determination at an early age. After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Navy in 2005. He served for 7 ½ years and was based up and down the eastern seaboard, in Japan and in San Diego, where he concluded his time in the Navy. After a brief stint as a welder in the shipyards of Virginia, Joel moved to Asheville, NC, with his then fiancé, Wendy, where he says he “fell into property management.”
Joel decided to take the first step in his career in the multifamily industry when he walked into the Barrington Village apartment complex, where he was a resident at the time, and asked the front desk associate for a job. Continue reading...
We blinked and it is already almost 4th quarter...where has 2022 gone?
For this spotlight I wanted to talk about the difference between a vendor and a supplier partner. A vendor is basically like a soda machine. You press a button, pay your money, and out comes your desired drink. It is quick, but is it what is really best for you? Does it truly meet your need or is a band- aid that leaves you needing more/spending more in the long run.
The reason the AANC refers to our supplier partners as such is that we are truly partners in your journey. You consult with your partner, discuss your needs and desired outcomes, and a supplier partner works WITH you to recommend what would best suit the situation. We want you to be able to check your item off of your list as quickly and efficiently with as low of a cost as possible. Additionally, we want you to be able to provide the best service to your residents and with fiduciary responsibility in mind!
Why use a member of the AANC State Suppliers Council? Because you get much more than just a “press a button” style service, you truly get a partner that can help you maximize your dollars and minimize your headache. If you are in need of any specific item and don’t know which supplier best fills that need, reach out to the SSC Vice-Chair, Leah Vinansky, or myself and we can help you connect!

Another Successful Lobby Day in the Books
District Visits with Lawmakers
In August, PTAA and AANC coordinated two virtual meetings with the offices of two area members of Congress. On August 15, PTAA and AANC members met with the office of Congressman Ted Budd, and on August 25, the team met with Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our advocacy efforts through donations to the AANC PAC!
We are at 110% of our goal, reaching $27,610 in contributions this year, but our work is not complete. Text “AANCPAC” to 50155 or click here to donate!
Earlier this year, AANC launched the Multifamily Housing Coalition of North Carolina, an independent expenditure political committee to support AANC’s legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts. Since the Coalition can accept both individual and corporate dollars, contributions cannot support candidate campaigns like the PAC, but instead are used to expand the AANC's reach, educate legislators, and raise public awareness to the challenges facing the multifamily housing industry.
Interested in being one of the inaugural donors to the Coalition? You or your company can donate today!
