Keeping the Vision

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
July 8, 2019

When Seabreeze was started over 30 years ago, it was founded with the idea that business was personal. Clients weren’t just clients—they were family. Property management wasn’t just a service—it was a commitment to bettering communities. Along the way we built our reputation on the core values of people, performance and passion, knowing that if these three elements were aligned, we would always do the right thing for the people we serve. Over three decades later, that idea—and those core values—still ring true. It’s what we strive for and what... READ THE POST

 

Lobbying for You

By Marybeth O. Green
March 26, 2019

In 2018, I came to Seabreeze as the Vice President of Training and Development. While that job title is broad by nature, one of the things I am laser-focused on is legislation. Why? Because in training Seabreeze employees and our community board members, it’s my job to stay abreast of upcoming senate and assembly bills as well as how newly-passed legislation affects both the association industry and our clients. Because we need transparency around these critical issues to fight for the changes we want—and lobby against those we don’t. It’s... READ THE POST

 

Employee Spotlight on Chaz Blackledge: Finding His Way Home

February 27, 2019

Southern California is an outdoor playground. With temperate weather and a plethora of terrain, on any given day residents can choose from surfing, hiking, cycling or more. For Chaz Blackledge, General Manager at Seabreeze, Southern California has been his stomping grounds for many years. Whether he’s running an ultramarathon, participating in an Ironman, training to ride his bike across the country or swimming from Catalina Island to Palos Verdes, Chaz is continually persevering and pushing mental and physical limits. While many people have no interest in finding those limits, those... READ THE POST

 

A Continued Resolution: Why Creating a Great Company Culture Is a Job That’s Never Done

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
December 28, 2018

I don’t know about you, but I love the holiday season. It’s a wonderful time of year where we can enjoy the company of family and friends and reflect on all of the things for which we are grateful. And it doesn’t stop there. The holidays culminate with the New Year, giving us all a chance to start with a clean slate to reach the goals and resolutions we’ve made for the year to come. As I reflect on 2018, there is so much for which I am grateful. As... READ THE POST

 

The Seabreeze Ecosystem Project

October 10, 2018

As an organization so deeply connected to and entwined with communities, we regularly have the privilege of witnessing the transformation of the world around us. We get to see new developments turn from empty lots into thriving neighborhoods filled with new friends and families, and we also see established communities change and grow, allowing residents to build deeper bonds with each other. It’s exciting and inspiring, which is why helping grow communities is at the very heart of our mission. However, growing a community is about more than buildings, landscaping... READ THE POST

 

Growing Generational Communities, the Seabreeze Way: A spotlight on John Felder

May 1, 2018

Twenty-four years goes by pretty quickly. One minute, you’re sitting in your mom’s living room having a seemingly-innocuous conversation with an Association Manager who tells you to make a phone call about a job, and the next you’re sitting at your desk and reflecting on a career spent building communities all across Southern California. See, life has a funny way of working itself out, and we often find ourselves in different—albeit better—situations than we ever could have imagined. Just ask John Felder. “A quarter of a century is a lot... READ THE POST

 

Putting Down Roots

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
March 28, 2018

Spring is finally here! Spring is when the days get longer and where the rain and sun create the right conditions for new plants to grow. However, in order to grow, these plants must first put down roots. The roots are important because they will serve as the foundation to keep the plant in place as it reaches maturity. At Seabreeze, we know the importance of putting down roots, and it’s why we’re in the business of building communities. Every Seabreeze community is a place where people work, play and...

The Year of the Dog

February 16, 2018

Today, people around the world are celebrating Chinese New Year, and 2018 is the year of the dog. The dog is the eleventh of the zodiac animals and is known for loyalty, obedience and commitment to people and work. In other words, dogs don’t fail us. They’re constantly ready, able and willing to sacrifice everything to protect and love us—or to get a treat! If you know me, you know how much I love my dog. Kaya, my yellow lab, has been my constant companion since she was just two... READ THE POST

 

New Year, New Mission

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
January 31, 2018

We always start the year with the best of intentions. From losing weight to getting a promotion, we sprint into the New Year with lofty goals and ambitions. Unfortunately, our will and perseverance don’t always match those goals, and we often fall back into old habits and patterns that hamstring us from making the progress we want. In fact, just over 40 percent of us give up on our resolutions by the time February rolls around. Well, it’s almost February, and it’s safe to say that many of us have... READ THE POST

 

A Good Year: Reflections Part Two

By Isaiah Henry, President and CEO
December 20, 2017

At Seabreeze, our number one goal is to build communities, and we know that community starts at home. By empowering and investing in our people and giving them the tools to map their own paths to success, we know that we are also equipping them to deliver the personalized service that our clients have come to expect. In our last blog, we explored the stories of two Seabreeze team members and the incredible year that they’ve had. As I read their accomplishments, I’m unbelievably proud of them and this entire...
