25+ years of experience in Property Management taught me you have to do something different than the competition to stand out.

Of course, right? But in today’s world of technology, social media, concessions and crazy amenity packages, how do you do that? My name is Kelly Thomas and I started Pickle Bird Solutions to give property managers and owners the tools to stand out against their competition and uniquely market their apartment communities to exceed their NOI goals. Why Pickle Bird? Well, you have to be different to stand out, right? 😊 The communities with the highest rents, top amenities and best location aren’t always the ones that stand out the most. Why? That’s what we can help you with!

I’ve been very successful leading teams to manage a variety of classes of apartment communities. Our team has experience with pre-development, construction, lease-ups, high-rise, mid-rise and garden style communities. I’ve taken over 25 years of best practices in property management and condensed it into sharable knowledge to make a BIG impact with the clients and team members we partner with.

Do you ever wonder why your communities aren’t meeting NOI but you aren’t sure where to start? Real estate is local and starts with your onsite team. You need tools - and we can help! We partner with owners/managers to identify opportunities to maximize revenue and reduce expenses to exceed their NOI and increase their property value. We diagnose what needs fixed and train your onsite teams how to execute a plan to get their property back on track.

Training, training, TRAINING- this is my answer to 90% of our client’s problems. Many companies don’t offer formal in-house training and they rely on other team members to do this who are already overloaded with their daily duties. Whether you are a Leasing Consultant needing to increase your closing ratio, or an RPM who wants to increase property values to impress your owners, we have a class for YOU! Love in person classes? Great, we’re amazing in person! ❤️ Need help but on a budget? Our online classes and ongoing support really delivers. My goal is to share 25+ years of lessons learned so you can continue to grow in your career. Invest in yourself TODAY, you deserve to be the best!

We want your community to be the one that stands out, in a GOOD way, when a prospect, investor or potential owner comes to tour.  Our goal is to increase the value of your real estate, because that makes everybody happy! You need solutions and we’re ready to give them to you.  Let us help, c’mon, we’re helpers. 😉 Just click below to get started!
