In the apartment industry, unit turnover is fast and furious. Often, some properties have only a week to prepare units for new residents. The Collier Companies has over forty-five apartments in Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma. The staff at each Collier community has a limited amount of time to clean and prepare their entire property for the line of new tenants. After each ‘turn’ the company has a large party thanking the hardworking staff, and awarding those ‘stars’ that make turn a success. This year, The Collier Companies had three Turn Star parties covering all six regions. Awards were given to team members and vendors who received a nomination by their fellow team members. Award recipients receive a certificate showing their achievement.
The first award party took place September 17, in Tallahassee, Florida. This party covered the nine properties located in the city. The recipient of the Office Team Member Award was Austin Howard. Our Helping Hands Team Member Award winner was Meghan Comer. The Service Team Member Award was given to Michael Mooy. Our Office Rookie Team Member Award winner was Dorian Earley. Our Community Award winner was Seminole Grand. After the awards, the entire team member staff enjoyed tickets and vouchers for the Fun Station.

Our Service Team Member Award recipient was Sean Leslie. The Rookie Team Member Award was given to Shawna Antunes. Our Helping Hands Award winner was Mark Wilkie.
