In 2009, SPECTRUM Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Kelly, celebrated his 30 Year Anniversary as a property management professional.
Mr. Kelly started his career working summers as a groundskeeper at a 1,104-unit apartment community while attending the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Graduating in 1982 with his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, Jeff started working full time as a Manager Trainee, where he learned the basics of leasing, marketing, bookkeeping and maintenance. He was quickly promoted to the position of Property Manager at a 604-unit community in Columbus, Ohio, where he coordinated a turnaround project that moved the property from 75% occupancy to 95% occupancy in less than a year.
The excitement of using a variety of business skills and seeing firsthand how they could positively impact the physical and financial condition of a real estate investment, while at the same time improving the living conditions of the residents who made their homes there, had Jeff hooked on a career in property management.
Since that time, Jeff has held a wide variety of corporate and senior level positions with local and national companies; supervising portfolios ranging in size from 800 units to 80,000 units while working as a Senior Officer of such well known companies as Hall Financial Group, Insignia Management Group, Fogelman Management, Tucson Realty & Trust Company, and Sullens &
Euchner, Inspired Management Services.
Few individuals are able to bring the level of hands on experience, commitment, leadership, and success that Jeff brings to the clients and customers of SPECTRUM Real Estate Services.
