Joel Evans is McKinley!March 4, 2012
You may not know that Joel started as a groundskeeper at Lake in the Woods, a very large and complex residential workout we did for Freddie Mac in 2002. He started working for Don Golec, and he did anything Don asked him to do. Joel was going to school at the time, and he was a quick study for all things property management. Fast forward 10 years Today Joel is the Property Manager at Southgate Mall in Maple Heights, OH. Joel has also done a top notch job with the Ashtabula Mall takeover for C-III and he is now in the trenches with Scott Gray in Scottsdale, AZ shining up our newest retail asset for Karlin Real Estate. He is a McKinley team player through and through. Joel exhibits his willingness and flexibility working on challenging assets and brings new and fresh ideas to the table for his team to think about and implement. I have always enjoyed Joels talent for developing his team and wanting to instill McKinleys core values to those who are new to our culture.
Last year during the hurricane that hit Norfolk, Hoby and Joel were at the center of the storm leading our response team on the ground at Janaf Shopping Center!
I am grateful to have him on our CCS team and Im excited to see him grow with the new opportunities coming in the West! But for those of you asking how I go from groundskeeper to commercial property management executive, just reach out to Joel and he will have lots to share!
Joel Evans is McKinley!
