The WPRL comprises the following departments: Front Desk; Housekeeping; Laundry; Condo Maintenance; Owner Relations; HOA Management; Commercial Management; Village Company, and the Vintage Hotel.

Additionally, completing daily/weekly/monthly/annual routine and preventative maintenance tasks and taking on specialized project work rounds out the rest of this role.

      during any dispatched call.
    • Accurately diagnose more complex maintenance issues including in-unit problems, and building
      systems problems. Can trouble-shoot larger issues (multiple units, multiple-property issues)
      and provide a timely and succinct update to all stakeholders.
    • Able to complete basic-to-intermediate plumbing, electric, HVAC, carpentry/finish
      repairs without supervision when dispatched on maintenance calls.
