A Chance Parking Lot Meeting
Mac & George, who had known each other since 1979, were now working at the same real estate company in 1981. Mac was recently hired to try and straighten out the property management department. George had been there for two years in sales and working with the owner on budgets.
Both usually arrived early at the office. One early July morning Mac and George were in the parking lot early when Mac commented that the only way to straighten out the property management department was for the two of them to purchase it. His next comment was “George, you figure out how to do it.”
Mac was born & raised in Phoenix, was retired from law enforcement after working with the Phoenix Police Department and the Maricopa County Sheriff. A Certified Property Manager previously managing apartment complexes knew well the market needed single family property management.
George a native of Pennsylvania moved to the Phoenix area in 1976 then settled in Glendale. Licensed in 1972 working in a resort area, he worked in sales and resort style property management of single family homes.
With George’s bookkeeping background, being a numbers person & Mac’s knowledge of the local market, Mac believed they would make perfect partners.
October 1, 1981 Key Management was born. Mac & George stayed partners for 17 years until Mac’s retirement. Although the original plan was to build the company for 5 years and then sell, we are still running after more than 35 years.
