What our clients
are saying

“The transition from the prior management to Campus Advantage was seamless. Bringing in a highly trained management staff and working closely with our staff, the Campus Advantage team was able to provide no interruptions to any levels of service to either employees or residents at these properties. The positive changes began to occur almost immediately.”

Mary SplidePresident, Lane Community College

“The on-site staff has been phenomenal. They have been faced with strict financial constraints yet still managed to creatively program and co-vend with local merchants to deliver strong programs and incentives to our residents.”

John FinaPresident, The Seasons Partners, LLC

“With their wealth of experience, the Campus Advantage team recruited a stellar staff and was able to quickly deliver an operating budget and marketing plan that ultimately led to a successful initial lease up.”

Russ JonesPresident, Davidson and Jones Corporation

Stephen PerlmutterPresident and CEO, Pinecrest

Stephen AdamSenior Vice President, LaSalle Investment Management

“Your team created a strong, trusting, effective relationship and worked to provide an environment where students could ‘live where you learn, and love where you live.’ Due to your outstanding residence life programs and marketing capabilities, our property has again reached 100% occupancy.”
