Twas the week before Christmas, across all the land,
Not a creature was stirring, a quiet day was planned.
The banners were hung across the property with care,
In hopes the prospects would find their way there.
The team was gathered, it was team meeting time
Work orders, turnovers, “Let’s fix the sign!”
The Manager had her tablet in hand,
Inspections, reports could be recalled on demand.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
they ran to the window to see what was the matter,
They opened the blinds in a hurry,
but with snowing and blowing, the view was too blurry.
The exterior lighting, recently checked, was a glow.
The grounds had been cleared of the new fallen snow.
When what to their eyes should appear.
The arrival of the Regional Team filled with Christmas cheer.
Now Leasing!, Now Admin! Now Maintenance and Grounds!
Accounting, Payroll, HR and Analysts abound!
“To the top of the charts, Results higher than last!
Grow the Occupancy! Grow the Revenue! More Growth than the Past!”
Then at a twinkling they arrived at the door
The clapping and cheering, “Please give us more!”
As we held our breath, preparing our greeting
They charged in, this was no regular meeting!
Santa Hats on their heads, baskets of goodies in tow,
Wearing Ugly Sweaters, to create smiles where they go.
Singing Christmas Carols, lined up in a row,
The support from Management they wanted to show.
Teamwork! Customer Service. its all in place.
Performance at this property puts a smile on our face!
“Occupancy! Collections!” They cheered their support!
“We want you to know it’s more than a report.”
Handshakes and hugs, Appreciation to Share,
The holiday spirit was in the air.
Snacks, cookies and cocoa were given to the crew!.
Thanks for all the hard work that you do!
Travel mugs refilled, they picked up their hats.
The Cheer Tour continues! Its not all about stats!”
They loaded up in a second, off into the night
But I heard them exclaim as they drove out of sight,
Happy Christmas To All, and To All A Good Night.
