2021 saw rent growth of nearly 19 percent, which blows long-term averages out of the water. The pandemic, house prices, and explosive job growth caused an unprecedented demand for apartments, which was the perfect storm for multifamily investors in Dallas-Fort Worth. The market then calmed down at the end of 2022, seeing negative absorption rates and slower rent growth. This has caused some investors to worry about the profitability of multifamily investments.

But slowing down from record-breaking growth isn't the end of the world for investors. According to the article, higher rents aren't scaring away potential tenants, and growth is still outpacing historical averages.

Our landscape company, Green Empire, has a new team leader! We are pleased to introduce Fernando Gasque Gonzales, who joins us full of energy and ready to hit the ground running. He brings to the company knowledge and expertise that will help Green Empire run even more efficiently, offering better results for our investors and clients.

Fernando has eleven years of experience in landscape maintenance. He worked his way up through the ranks, starting as a laborer and eventually earning a spot in management. His previous experience ranges from small gas stations to exclusive neighborhoods in Windermere, Florida.

His mother was one of his biggest mentors, both in life and in lawn care. Her landscaping team won an award for "Best Looking Airport" for their work at the Orlando International Airport in the early 2000s. She showed Fernando that a good leader always leads from the front. Not only did she teach him to reach for excellence at work, but also to always do the right thing in life.

Fernando is also influenced by Roosevelt's speech, "The Man in the Arena." He re-reads it when he is facing hardships to remind himself that only timid souls know no defeat or victory.

Welcome to the team, Fernando! We are so happy to have you on board!
