Oregon West Management
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

Jake Frazier is the manager for Oregon West Management, which manages four apartment complexes (Westridge, Southridge, Inland Village, and Alderwood) in the Coos Bay/North Bend area. The units vary from 1, 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans, fully equipped with kitchen appliances, and feature carpeted living and bedrooms.

Jake’s office itself is located at 350 S. 8th in Coos Bay, with open hours of 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. When you walk in the door, however, the face you’ll see first belongs to Maria, the leasing agent.

I asked Jake how he started with Oregon West Management. “Eight years ago I was hired as the maintenance technician for Southridge and Westridge apartments in Coos Bay,” he replied.  “I was in that position for about four years, and then the management position opened up. I asked to be considered for it, had an interview, and I got the job.”

The Southridge apartments are one of the four complexes managed by Oregon West Management.
So just what does an apartment manager do? Jake replied, “I basically make all the decisions here locally. I’m the go-between with the corporate office in Eugene and the tenants here.  We’ve got roughly 200 units that I manage, so there are a lot of details involved in this job. A big part of my job is overseeing the day-to-day operations for all four facilities, scheduling contractors, and coordinating with the three maintenance technicians employed here.”

You’ll find Oregon West Management apartments not only in the Coos Bay/North Bend area, but also in Federal Way, Washington, Molalla, Oegon, and Redding and Bakersfield, California.

I asked Jake how long he’s been advertising with the Shopper. “As long as I’ve worked here,” he said. “I believe we have the nicest apartments in town, and I have people lined up waiting to rent them.”

Jake said he’s a pretty private guy, but did tell me that when he’s not at work, he’s home enjoying time with his wife and three-and-a-half year old son.  “I used to have more hobbies,” said Jake, “but that all changed when my son was born. Now he keeps me very busy!”

Oregon West Apartments are surrounded by the outstanding beauty of the Southern Oregon Coast, and all their locations provide convenient access to shopping, dining, services and area attractions, as well as quick access to Highway 101 and nearby coastal communities. Their mission is to provide everyone with caring customer service and responsive maintenance.  If you’re in the market for a new apartment, give Jake or Maria a call at 541-269-1912 and get started on your way to living in a nice and well-maintained apartment!  www.oregonwestmanagement.com
