WPD Management, a property management company operating throughout the south side of Chicago, is expanding its service to the city’s west side. In the last two months, the company has added 200 west side apartment units to its management portfolio. 

 

“With more than 3,500 apartments in our portfolio, we’ve built a strong reputation within south side communities,” WPD Management COO Patrick Ryan said. “Our expansion to the city’s West Side is a natural progression for our company.”

 

With a 4.5 star rating on Google, WPD Management is the highest-rated property management company on the south side. The property management firm understands the unique challenges faced by real estate investors, and its deep experience in the industry helped it become one of the most trusted property management companies. Now, that experience and trust will help residents on the west side as well. 

 

WPD Management’s newest property management assignments on the west side include apartments in East Garfield Park, West Garfield Park, Austin, and South Austin. 

 

“Our hands-on, comprehensive approach to property management sets us apart,” said Director of Business Development Dan Nagle. “We are excited to deepen our relationship with west side communities and provide support to residents and owners in this area of the city.” 

 

Looking ahead, the firm has a goal of reaching 5,000 units under management by the end of 2022.

 

WPD Management, a property management company operating throughout the south side of Chicago, has hired Dan Nagle as Director of Business Development. Nagle is the first person to hold this position at the company and plans to help the third-party management company have 5,000 units under management by the end of 2022.

“WPD Management today has over 3,500 apartment units in its portfolio and continues to be a leading and well-respected property management firm throughout the southside of Chicago,” said COO Patrick Ryan. “We’ve implemented systems and a team that can accommodate continued growth and look forward to having Dan win more business for us.” 

“I am thrilled to join this fast-growing company that prioritizes its residents, team and clients,” said Nagle. “Our goal is to continue to offer personal service to all clients while rapidly expanding our third-party management offerings.”

Prior to joining WPD, Nagle built a career in banking and most recently served as Regional Vice President for Devon Bank. He holds an MBA from Lewis University and has a degree in Finance from Northern Illinois University.

 

 

Employees with WPD Management, a property management company operating throughout the south side of Chicago, made a meaningful impact so far this summer, volunteering at two different organizations in June and July. 

 

“Giving back has always been an important part of our company,” said COO Patrick Ryan. “By offering two volunteer days so far this year for our employees, we recognize the critical role nonprofit organizations play in our community and the responsibility we all have in helping them succeed.” 

 

In June, 16 team members volunteered at Humble Design, lending a hand in the bed frame section helping organize and assemble. Their organizational efforts will allow designers to quickly work through the warehouse and serve more families in need of their help. Through Volunteering Untapped Chicago, 12 team members volunteered to clean up Harold Washington Park in July.

 

In addition, Property Manager Traci Haskell has been named one of three finalists for Property Manager of the Year for the 2021 Illinois Real Estate Journal Awards. A key detail for her recognition was going above and beyond to organize a toy drive in December 2020 that provided more than 150 toys and gifts at her Englewood community building.

 

“WPD is committed to building strong and effective relationships with residents, communities served, team members, and clients,” said Ryan. “By prioritizing those we serve, we are able to set higher standards for multi-family housing and property management throughout Chicago’s South Side.”

 

In March 2021, the company launched WPD Cares, a platform that connects nonprofits and community groups with the volunteers they need. WPD Cares is an initiative that gives back to residents, communities served, and employees. Nonprofit organizations and other entities doing work throughout the south side of Chicago are encouraged to submit their volunteer requests at www.wpdmanagement.com/wpd-cares

Communities Served

 

WPD Management manages a portfolio of 300 apartment buildings in neighborhoods throughout the south side of Chicago.

 

“Throughout the years, we’ve always given back to the community. It was important for us to be more strategic about our donations and volunteer efforts, which is why we added a page dedicated to WPD Cares to our website,” said Patrick Ryan, COO.

 

Nonprofit organizations and other entities doing work throughout the south side of Chicago are encouraged to submit their volunteer requests at www.wpdmanagement.com/wpd-cares

 

“We want to become more familiar with organizations doing impactful work and hope that these inbound requests will introduce us to even more people doing great things,” said Ryan. “We are very proud to have made a sizable donation to My Block My City My Hood last summer and look forward to giving back, even more, this year.”

 

Employees

 

WPD Management currently employs more than 80 people working in various roles from Property Manager to Maintenance Technician. As the company has grown over the last decade, employee benefits have evolved to meet the market and the company’s core values. A perk reflective of the WPD Cares initiative is offering each employee two paid volunteer days and providing senior employees the ability to participate in a Leadership Training program.

 

“We are very proud that 16 of our team members completed a leadership training program last year. As we continue to promote from within, it is important for us to continue to invest in our team,” said Ryan.

WPD Management, a property management company operating throughout the south side of Chicago, launches WPD Cares. The initiative aims to give back to residents, communities served and employees. 

 

“We’ve seen the impact the pandemic has had and wanted to create a more formal approach to the frequency, programming and support offered to our residents,” said Patrick Ryan, COO of WPD Management. 

 

WPD Management serves as property management to over 3,000 residents and kicked off 2021 by providing $10,000 in rent credit to residents in need. 

 

“When we mentioned the rent credit initiative to our client Goldman Investments, they contributed an additional $10,000 to residents living in the buildings we manage for them,” said Ryan. “We also received $2,000 from Kiser Group as part of their year-long initiative to give back to struggling renters.”

 

The combined $22,000 in rent credit was allocated to 19 units impacting residents ranging from janitorial workers who lost pay due to commercial building closures to single mothers who took time off to care for children needing help with e-learning, and CPS coaches who lost coaching pay due to sports cancellations across the district. 

 

A veteran with health issues and WPD Management resident currently receives help from family members to make his rent payments on time, “When he received our rent credit letter, he was over the moon and very appreciative,” said Ryan. “He said it’s a great opportunity for him to start fresh and feel a weight lifted off his shoulders.”

 

Past WPD Cares initiatives included randomly selecting 100 residents to receive a $50 gift card during the holiday season and a toy drive organized by Property Manager Traci Haskell. The toy drive handed out more than 150 gifts to resident children within Haskell’s Englewood community building. For going above and beyond, she earned the company’s 2020 WPD Cares Award. 

 

Through WPD Cares, residents will enjoy additional surprise and delight programming throughout 2021. The initiative also plans to make donations and provide volunteers to support southside-focused nonprofits and communities within which WPD Management operates.
