|Oregon West Management
By Annette Langenstein, Staff
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
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!”
