Houston-based Barvin has hired Kelli Tomczak as senior vice president of asset management and Tracie Yoder as senior vice president of operations. Prior to joining Barvin, both Tomczak and Yoder held executive leadership roles at US Residential / Resource Real Estate, a national multifamily property management firm based out of Philadelphia.
Tomczak previously served as the chief administrative officer for US Residential Group, the chief administrative officer of Resource Residential, and the vice president of asset management for Resource Real Estate, where she was responsible for their private equity and tenant in common multifamily funds. Yoder has held operations leadership roles at Avenue5, US Residential and Greystar, where she specialized in pre-development and lease-ups.
“We are thrilled for Kelli and Tracie to join the Barvin team. Both are proven leaders who represent our core values and will bring operational excellence to the organization,” said Barvin founder, Eric Barvin. “We are working to build a company that’s a best-in-class owner and operator in the multifamily space.”
During their time at US Residential / Resource Real Estate, both Tomczak and Yoder worked alongside Susan Pohl, Barvin’s current senior vice president of acquisitions. The three female executives have 20 to 30 years of experience in the multifamily industry and continue to prove themselves as experts in the field.
Reuniting these key players is a huge asset for Barvin, as they get closer to achieving their strategic 10-year growth plan devised in 2017. With this plan, Barvin aims to acquire and develop 16,000 units in key markets by 2027 and already has 5,000 units under their belt. The Barvin team chose key markets based on pro-business economies with growing and diversified job bases and with educated renter profiles earning above the median income for areas bearing growth potential. They also strongly examined the barriers to entry and focused in on locations that had a compelling apartment market.
With all these factors considered, Barvin decided to home in on Atlanta, Phoenix, Denver, Charlotte, Orlando, and the major Texas markets. Barvin looks forward to acquiring and developing multifamily assets in these key markets.
