New, modern Class-A apartments being delivered in metros areas across the country come equipped with high-tech HVAC, security systems and even amenities. “These developments are becoming much more sophisticated and require more qualified and highly trained service associates,” Gables Residential CEO Sue Ansel says. High-tech security systems and even the more technologically advanced parking garages require different expertise. This has changed the game for some maintenance technicians.
Recently NAA spoke to a number of leading apartment industry executives about their expectations for the year. Despite still-strong economic indicators, executives harbor many worries, whether they stem from market factors, government overreach, disruptive technologies, scarce labor or frothy apartment valuations. The view of 2018 is not all negative: New technology, an ever-evolving offering of amenities and a new marriage of office and apartments, will showcase the industry’s potential in 2018.
When an apartment owner buys a community or a new management firm comes in, there is usually a clear, unspoken expectation: The incoming firm will speak with the existing staff and offer them the opportunity to stay onboard. While the staff can stay or go, the buyer gets to make a pitch. But the fierce struggle to retain talent in the country’s hottest markets is pushing some of the industry’s largest firms to change the rules of engagement.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
