SQuad of
the Month

Our squad of the month program recognizes and honors top performers at the company each month. Check out the stories behind our most recent winners!

On-site Office SQuad Member Faith Ward, General Manager @ The Lookout
Read More
Faith started with SQ in July 2020 as a part-time leasing consultant in Johnson City and quickly became a real asset to her community and our entire portfolio. Over the last 2 years, Faith has cross-trained with other roles at her site, assisted with lease file audits and dashboard clean up at other sites, traveled to additional sites to boost leasing velocity, and continued to be one of the top leasers in Johnson City. In April, Faith moved across the country from Tennessee to Colorado for her very own property as a General Manager. Since arriving in Colorado (6 short weeks ago), Faith has taken Lookout from 43% preleased to almost 92% preleased. Probably more when this actually comes out since things are changing by the hour there. Even though she was the only office team member, had just completed a cross country move, and is learning a new role, Faith has still provided exceptional results in such a short amount of time. Did I mention she also earned her 4-year degree and graduated college this month?! This girl is doing it all. Faith is the real story of growth at Student Quarters." AND, "Not only has she brought an entirely new feel and attitude to the office here, as well as she has been crushing it leasing-wise. She is going to take this property to new heights!! She is Authentic and Genuine! Seeing her interact with people both inside and outside of work, she is a shining example of customer service and a master at de-escalating. Finding genuine and meaningful solutions seems to be her superpower!
On-site Facilities SQuad Member Caleb "KJ" Carrothers, Maintenance Supervisor @ Next Chapter Properties
Read More
We are so proud of KJ! He has been a one man show over four locations in Champaign and he is making a huge difference with a smile on his face. He is literally busting his butt to make NCP better. Even with handling four properties of work orders, KJ keeps a positive, professional attitude. He is phenomenal with residents and has received multiple compliments, even when the resident has been waiting longer for work order completion. Couldn't do it without him!
Corporate SQuad Member Christina Williams, National Sales Specialist
Read More
Christina was so Authentic & Genuine during her visit. She immediately jumped into action and gave me the kick start I needed to get the leasing show on the road. Her Unparalleled Engagement during her visit allowed me to refocus without any judgement. She challenged me to be Steady in All Seasons to do what needed to be done to get the leases flowing, and even start the conversation about how we could appeal to the University. Christina fully showed that she was Dedicated to We Before Me when she fully embraced my team and guided them to be better and more confident salespeople. She continued to follow up with me through staff changes, and I successfully Challenged The Status Quo for her to be reassigned back to my property! We recently celebrated 100% this month, and it couldn't go without saying that Christina played a large role in that!
Corporate SQuad Member Elizabeth Clayton, Asset Management Associate

Elizabeth took great initiative in figuring out how to upload all the proformas for the next several years into Entrata so that this is now an automated process. She has been a great resource getting new SQuad members up to speed and was instrumental in the compiling all of the Benchmarking data. Selling a property??? Elizabeth is tracking down all the minutiae that buyers are asking! Lender request? She’s responding and always has your back!



Before working at Student Quarters, I had trouble finding a company that had everything I was looking for to feel at home. I wanted culture that allowed me to be me. I wanted team members that felt like family. I wanted to feel appreciated by the corporate team. I can comfortably say that all my boxes have been checked and I have found a company with everything I have been looking for! Since joining the SQuad, I have found support, culture, and family flowing in from all positions!

Student Quarters is a place brimming with employee enthusiasm and major opportunity. Very few places leave one feeling quite so optimistic about the future direction of the company in a way that makes you want to dig in and do your part to the best of their ability. This translates not only in daily tasks, but across cultural initiatives and community projects that SQ takes part in as well. Even through the challenges that come with exponential growth, we are forging something really special and I personally want to be a part of the SQ story that’s unfolding- can’t wait for the next chapter!

Property Accounts Manager


When interviewing with a new company, you never know if what you are told is the truth until you actually start. Since joining the SQuad, I can tell you that everything I hoped would be true, is true. The people are genuine, and let you truly run without holding you back. There is ample coaching, but there is also ample freedom to come in, grind, and work. As a part of the SQuad, you are not a number or an employee, but instead a valuable piece of the puzzle that is respected, cared for, and treated well.
