Property Manager, Builders Inc.
Lewis, who has managed the 250 Douglas Place apartments since last year, is about to get busier.
She will add management of the Zelman Lofts, Victoria Park and Lux apartments to her portfolio as those properties become ready for tenants.
Like 250 Douglas, which is inside the Garvey Center and has 150 units, those properties are in downtown Wichita. They will add another 100 units to Lewis’ watch.
"I like that I get to wear a different hat every day," Lewis said of her job. "It’s everything from showing apartments to basically knocking on people’s doors and asking them for the rent."
Lewis, 30, grew up in Wichita and got her first taste of property management while renting homes owned by her family. She spent six years in the military and also worked in residential management in Indianapolis before returning home and going to work for Builders Inc.
Outside the office, Lewis and her husband, Jason, enjoy traveling and working out, "although I think he likes golf better," Lewis said.
