This month we shine the spotlight on Maintenance Technician, Mike Nelson. Read the story below to find out where he's been and where he's going. 


"When IPG purchased Bear Lake Estates about 5 years ago, Mike Nelson had already been keeping the community in great shape and looking sharp, for quite some time. We were fortunate and grateful that he decided to stay on as a maintenance technician. Unfortunately, the Southern Oregon Alameda Drive fire, burned the entire community of Bear Lake Estates to the ground. It’s been an extremely tough few weeks, for all involved. Through all of the turmoil resulting from the fire, Mike has set aside his own pain and grief, to be there for the Property Managers, Residents of the Community, and help IPG with whatever is needed. All of this, while still looking for a place to live. From IPG ownership, down to us as Regional Managers, we had been researching how to help Mike get back on his feet. Mike was in need of a home, and a way to keep his full time job with IPG.


'Where there’s a will, there’s a way"

Fortunately, there was an available rental home at Rogue Lea Estates in Grants Pass.In addition to that, Mike also accepted two part-time openings for a Maintenance Tech – one at Rogue Lea itself and one at Cascade Village. Mike will move into the Rogue Lea rental home and continue his “Full-Time” position for IPG as of October 1.

As the Regional Managers working to put this all together, JoEllen and I would like to say how proud we are of Mike for his focus and perseverance during this difficult time. We are also appreciative and grateful to IPG leadership for the compassion and resolve to provide this solution for Mike. Call it what you will – 'It’s a Team Effort' or 'It Takes a Village'. We’re just proud of our IPG Team, and glad Mike Nelson is still a part of it!"
