Jewel Dilworth

"My long career in property management has been a great and gratifying journey to serve people with their housing needs. I started in property management after I graduated from college with a degree in teaching. While waiting for substitute teacher positions, I found myself working different jobs to support myself and was having a tough time making ends meet. While a maintenance supervisor was doing maintenance in my apartment, I told him I was looking for a job and he told me I should consider being a leasing agent and they were looking for one in the office. I met with the Area Property Manager, and she hired me!

Fast forward, I ended up working at new lease ups with Trammell Crow across Minneapolis and then RREEF Residential which then had JPI manage their sites until Greystar bought them. Yep, I didn’t change companies; they changed on me three times! After 22 years I had a hard decision to make, I joined one of my clients doing a startup, and boy was that hard! After 2 years, and my portfolio selling, I was looking for something with less travel. I had a friend who worked with SAGE and was told they were looking for a Regional Manager.

The last two years has been a whirlwind, coming on board right before the pandemic and then being right in the middle of major civil unrest in Minneapolis. While going through these struggles, leadership has been there supporting me and entrusting me to look out for my portfolio in Minneapolis, being the boots on the ground, while I support their efforts to grow the company.

What I love about property management is that no day is ever like the last, and there are many days that I get to be part of so many firsts!"
