December Team Member of the Month

Eric Barbour

Associate Director of Client Services

Eric made his way to Provo by way of UC Irvine, where he received a degree in Physics. We’re very happy he decided that immersing himself in the world of science theory wasn’t as appealing as working with actual people because it means he’s now a member of our team. Eric’s communication and customer service skills keep his clients happy, and his ability to diagnose and define technical issues makes the lives of our developers easy because his requests are always clear and concise.

Co-workers notice Eric’s positive energy and his ability to build strong relationships. His trainings are always top-notch and his willingness to share his knowledge makes him the go-to guy for questions and advice. continue

Michael’s dedication to his work is evident to his team and clients alike. As a trainer, Michael often helps get new members of the team up-to-speed quickly. Michael is often the first to arrive in the office and the first to volunteer for weekend and holiday shifts to make sure clients are well taken care of, which is greatly appreciated by his teammates.

Virginia Tory

Director of Merchant Services

Virginia has been involved in the property management industry since 1986, managing communities in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah before joining the team at Property Solutions. Her perspective and her ability to put herself in a client’s shoes have proven invaluable as our company has grown. Besides her vast experience, Virginia’s generosity and willingness to help both clients and co-workers make her a stand-out team player.

When she’s not figuring out bank migrations or setting up underwriting, Virginia likes to be in her garden. Her desk is the greenest corner of the office, and her plants always seem very happy. continue

Derek Lefler

Associate Director of Client Services

Derek Lefler has been with Property Solutions for a little more than a year and has put the time to good use. Derek is a fast learner. His clients and co-workers find him easy to work with and quick to offer help. Whether he’s solving a Rubik’s cube (his record is under a minute) or solving a client’s problem, Derek handles his job with creativity and dedication. His ability to grasp new concepts makes him a great resource.

When he’s not toiling away at Property Solutions, Derek enjoys mountain biking, video games, and sandwiches. (He recently won a t-shirt at a local sandwich shop for consuming a 24-inch sub in 23 minutes!) He’s a dedicated family man with three adorable kids. continue

Doug Phillips

Project Manager

If you ask Doug Phillips about his hobbies, he’ll list the two that take up all of his time: his work & his family. Doug spent some time living on both coasts before finally settling down here in the mountains of Utah and we’re glad he’s here. He’s a great addition to our development team and is always willing to go the extra mile.

It sounds like his dedication is hereditary. Ask Doug about his family and he’ll tell you about his beautiful and accomplished daughters. One danced in the “High School Musical” movie, another is a top-ranked Rodeo athlete, and another earned her first college degree (Associates) at age 17 and is on track to finish her bachelor’s degree by 19. Genius must run in the family.

Nate Keplinger

Inside Sales

We would like to give our thanks and best wishes to Nate Keplinger, who is Property Solutions’ employee of the month. Nate is headed to Arizona for medical school, but has been working as an inside-sales rep at Property Solutions for the last year.

Nate always goes above and beyond with his responsibilities and is one of the most productive guys in the sales department. Throughout the month of May and June, Nate closed more sales than any other inside-sales rep. Nate is also a great competitor. He helped our softball team, the PSI Punishers, jump from the lower to upper division this season, and his colleagues describe his Foosball skills as above-average.
