Meet Bri Barber

1. What is your role at A&K Painting, and how does your role impact commercial property managers?

My role at A&K Painting is to develop relationships with property managers so we can work as partners to maintain their assets. We often work together on different projects relating to services we provide, such as stucco repairs, interior and exterior painting, scheme rebranding, and overall paint renovations.

2. What do you like most about working for A&K Painting?

Working for A&K Painting feels like working with family, and I appreciate the open-communication culture. Starting my role at the beginning of the pandemic was a challenge, but the team’s amazing communication made it an easy transition in an uncertain time.

3. What is one thing A&K Painting can do that surprises property managers?

We don’t just come onto a jobsite and paint! Our team manages the project and sends out daily progress reports with pictures through Jobnet. We always keep our customers updated on the status of their project.

4. What advice would you give property managers when it comes to the maintenance of their properties?

It can be difficult to visit locations due to the pandemic. We can partner up with property managers to survey their portfolios and provide a timeline for when items are likely to need immediate attention. This can make it easier for property managers to detail areas of their portfolio to budget over the year.

5. Why is the Charlotte area a great place for commercial property managers?

CRE networking groups in Charlotte have allowed me to connect with so many amazing professionals in the area. I recommend looking into different groups to see what best resonates with your company mission and join.
