In their own words...

I have worked directly and indirectly with Sherre for more than 30 years in the apartment industry as colleagues and active industry professionals. There is no one better in delivering training as well as developing training to meet the needs of your organization whether an apartment association or an apartment management company. Well trained employees with superior results are the product of Sherre's training.

Sherre served as the lead Subject Matter Expert for the rewrite of the National Apartment Association Education Institute's National Apartment Leasing Professional (NALP) certificate program. Sherre brought to this task first-hand knowledge of the skills required for success as a leasing consultant as well as years of experience training leasing consultants for a major REIT.

Not only was Sherre great to work with, but she is thoughtful, intelligent and extremely knowledgeable and competent in her teachings.

Sherre presented her “Sales Strategies for Success” to our leasing agents and managers in preparation for the Spring and Summer leasing seasons and the results were astounding! First, she instilled enthusiasm in our team for their sales roles, their properties and for customer service. Secondly, she taught both novices and those with years of experience how to be better at their jobs. Sales and retention showed a marked increase from the prior year after Sherre’s classes. She is terrific!

I have heard many speakers and trainers throughout my 18 years and I would have to say that Sherre Helmer is one of the top trainers in the multifamily housing industry. Her use of group activities and engaging personality truly draws the student into her program. Sherre is not an entertainer; Sherre is a trainer, skilled in teaching her students ways to enhance their property management career by sharing information and ideas they can immediately implement on their job.

I have known Sherre Helmer for around 10 years. When I learned Sherre was starting her own training consulting business, we scheduled her for five sessions because I knew that our members would get professional and cutting edge educational programs from her. I would recommend Sherre to all my fellow Association Executives for regular educational seminars or for Educational Conferences.

Sherre recently led the Certified Apartment Manager designation course in our market. Every class module had student-led discussion and group activities, which really helped the students learn how to apply the information they were learning to their own properties. The students really felt that they connected with her as an instructor and a fellow industry professional. Sherre is such a great instructor that we have already invited her back to do an education session for our entire membership.
