Landlord Communication – 10/29/2020

November 2, 2020

Happy Thursday and almost Halloween!

We are quickly approaching the holidays and the end of 2020.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I want to share our thanks a little early this year.  We, at Kunkel Wittenauer Group, continue to be impressed and humbled by the response we get from our owners and tenants.  Though we progress forward despite the many challenges that bombard us as a result of the current environment, we are reminded frequently of how fortunate we are.

Our office remains closed to the public and our staff safely works both in the office and remotely as needed to maintain their health.  You, our owners, and our tenants afford us the ability to be flexible to ensure that health and safety as we ebb and flow through the rollercoaster ride associated with these times.  For that we are thankful!

Contractors are swamped, replacement appliances are out of stock, custom-ordered supplies take longer to secure, available property inventory is low with fewer people moving, some tenants are struggling to pay rent, and lease renewals are harder to secure from tenants. Our access to properties is only granted when truly vital and although we have invested in new technology to secure inspections virtually, it is also difficult to get tenants to schedule the phone appointments with us to complete those inspections.  Regardless of the difficulties and the delays, we are afforded an understanding from you that we, ourselves, hate to have to accept despite being appreciative of your willingness to grant it to us.

There simply is no way for me to put into words how very much we appreciate you and your understanding!  I hope this email finds you and your family well and safe as you embark on this thankful and thoughtful season approaching the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We hope you find creative ways to gather with those you love despite the challenges and restrictions!  And we hope, while together with them, you take time to dream big about the 2021 that stretches before us!  Just as we approach the end of 2020 and a new beginning in 2021, we all have the ability to choose our focus.  We look forward to positive energy and growing partnerships as we move into the new year and we thank you again for helping us choose that focus.
