Oretta joined Home Rental Services in February 2017 as an Assistant Property Manager. Oretta focuses primarily on our renters. She makes sure that they are well taken care of and that any maintenance requests are handled in a timely manner.
Oretta handles all the move-in appointments with our renters. These are all done in our office so renters get to meet Oretta face-to-face. When a renter moves out, Oretta reviews the move-out inspections and sets up appropriate work orders to get the property ready for the next renter. Oretta works with our owners as well. Usually, these interactions involve coordination of updates to the properties and managing our trusted vendors as they do the work.
Oretta came to us from the optical industry. She had daily interaction with optical practice managers and helped them troubleshoot issues with their optical products. Oretta has an extensive background in both the retail and wholesale aspects of the industry.
Oretta is married and her husband’s name is Shawn. We laughed out loud when she told us that they can always be found where the “older” people are… they love playing Bingo, taking in shows at the dinner theater, and going to Branson, Missouri. Oretta has a daughter named Poppy. Oretta is a Girl Scout leader for her daughter’s troop as well as a Girl Scout recruiter for adult volunteers for the organization.
Oretta loves doing crafty things. She especially loves to crochet when it’s colder while watching Netflix. She also loves to cook and gets new recipes from Pinterest. One of her favorite things about cooking is finding really good food that is still healthy to eat. She cooks mostly from scratch!
When asked, Oretta said that the culture at Home Rental Services is what convinced her to take the job. She feels that everyone is invested in the company. She particularly likes that everyone’s ideas hold weight… it doesn’t matter how long you’ve worked at Home Rental Services… if you have a good idea, they want to hear it.
We love Oretta’s sense of humor. She’s hit the ground running and definitely adds spice and humor to our culture!
