We Asked... Why Do You Love Working For Wimmer Communities?

< Back to blog

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” - Confucius

Wimmer Communities is a great place to live…and a great place to work. In fact, many of our team members (including this writer) were first introduced to Wimmer by living in one of our communities. With a long, local, stable history, it’s no wonder this organization has survived the economic ups and downs that naturally occur over the span of 140+ years. And Top Workplace Awards don’t happen on their own either. The Wimmer team has been voting their employer to success since 2016. Of course, every staff member has favorite aspects of working for Wimmer Communities, so we decided to ask our teams at RiverWalk on the Falls and our newest property, Tamarack Springs, both in Menomonee Falls, why they love working for this special company.

Andrew L. – Housekeeper, RiverWalk on the Falls

This year will mark Andrew’s two-year anniversary with Wimmer. He works hard keeping RiverWalk on the Falls in pristine condition, and it’s regularly remarked upon in online resident reviews. When we asked Andrew why he loves working for Wimmer Communities, he said, “Wimmer is a great employer, and the people that I have (and had) the privilege to work with have been very professional.”

Bella E. – Assistant Property Manager, Tamarack Springs

Bella has, “a passion for this industry,” and loves working for Wimmer, “because of all the opportunities this company has provided.” She started working at Wimmer Communities as a leasing consultant in 2018. In 2020 she was promoted to assistant property manager at RiverWalk on the Falls, then took the opportunity to participate in the excitement of new construction “lease-up” at Tamarack Springs. Bella told us, “I’ve made so many great friends and have worked with so many amazing people that have taught me so much,” here at Wimmer.

Mike M. – Property Manager, Tamarack Springs

Mike started his career at Wimmer as a leasing consultant, advancing to assistant property manager, senior assistant property manager, and property manager. He is currently successfully meeting the challenges of “leasing up” his second new construction property, after guiding RiverWalk on the Falls through the process.

Having been with the company for ten years, Mike has a lot of reasons to love working here. He values working for a family company and appreciates the work/home life balance that can be so elusive elsewhere. He is grateful for management’s focus on employee growth, education, and development and their desire to continually strengthen employee benefits.

Jessica G. – Leasing Consultant, RiverWalk on the Falls

There are two big reasons why Jessica has come to love working for Wimmer Communities over her past two years as a leasing consultant. Her first reason is the ability to grow professionally within the company, which reflects the organization’s priority to hire from within. Jessica also said she loves the team appreciation events that demonstrate how much the company cares about employees. Her favorite is the incredible holiday party at the Wisconsin Club, which includes cocktails, wine, a four-course dinner, and dancing for our employees and their guests.

Travis D. – Maintenance Technician, Tamarack Springs

Having started with the company in 2021, Travis has a fresh perspective on working for Wimmer. He loves the team atmosphere and being able to call other technicians to pick their brains on any issues that come up. Travis also loves the fun we all share at company events, such as cruising down the Milwaukee River on a sunny afternoon, followed by an “after-party,” or watching a great baseball game and enjoying lunch in an AmFam Stadium box, or our showstopper holiday party.

Emily B. – Assistant Property Manager, RiverWalk on the Falls

Emily says she loves, “the support from upper management for my individual growth with the company.” In her nearly three years with Wimmer, first as a leasing consultant, and now as an assistant property manager, Emily has come to appreciate, “the ability to grow in your own role,” along with, “the ability to grow into different roles.” She also loves the employee appreciation activities, including the Brewers game, boat cruise, and holiday party.

Heather B. – Property Manager, RiverWalk on the Falls

Heather is a long-term employee, having started with Wimmer Communities in 2008 as a leasing consultant. She was promoted to assistant property manager and has been a property manager since 2013. She says, “I love working for Wimmer because of the supportive leadership and workplace structure.” She attributes her own success to management who, “understands their employees’ ambitions and gives them all the growth opportunities and tools for success this industry has to offer.” Heather believes in the Company’s mission and culture, which provides a productive, positive, and enjoyable workplace. She says, “I love that Wimmer is a Family-Owned Company and provides that “family feeling” in the fun outings they put on. I feel valued and supported, which carries through to offering the highest customer service to our residents.”
