Amy E., Regional Marketing Director
11 Turn Seasons
“Turn is all in the prep work. You can either be made or broken by the lack of preparedness. It is never too early to start having meetings with turn vendors, preparing walk sheets, planning lock rotations, and communicating with your team.”

Piper S., Regional Supervisor
10 Turn Seasons
“Learn to roll with punches, have fun and understand your taking on the impossible by making it possible.”

Anna L., Senior Regional Leasing & Training Director  
10 Turn Seasons
“Always have a backup plan in place – especially the day of turn! Having daily check-ins with your team is extremely helpful, so you are constantly in the ‘we’re in this together’ mentality and nothing is falling through the cracks. Take care of your team and they will take care of your residents!”

Chris B., Market Research Analyst
8 Turn Seasons
“Stay organized and always update spreadsheets in a timely manner, pass out updated spreadsheet information regularly so everyone can be on the same page.”

Matthew B., Regional Leasing & Training Director
5 Turn Seasons
“Turn is a great time to get to know everyone on your team and make memories to laugh about later. Through the heat, long hours, and controlled chaos, just remember that seeing each resident excited on move-in day truly does make a difference!”

Hunter M., Community Manager
5 Turn Seasons
“Try and keep it light and fun at times. Turn is stressful for all members of the team. Do not forget to take some time to have some fun in between the chaos!”

Ivy F., Director of Corporate Marketing  
4 Turn Seasons
“Set daily goals for your team and make each day fun, whether that is a planned team lunch or everyone jumping in the pool at the end of the day. Some of my best memories are from working turn with my amazing team and friends.”

Jordan B., Leasing Manager
3 Turn Seasons
“Utilize all the time away from work to relax and unwind. As physically draining as turn can be, make sure you aren't mentally drained, and be sure to take time to focus on yourself, too!”
