As we head toward the end of another year, I want to share my reflections of this year, as CEO of Mosser. At the top of our company’s core values is to provide residents and communities with quality workforce housing and service. We can’t do this as a nine-to-five job—we live and breathe our responsibility to residents and could not do what we do without the contributions of our amazing employees and their dedication to Mosser’s mission this year—and every year. They are the front line in creating a safe, clean, and quality living experience for more than 3000 residents throughout San Francisco, Oakland and Los Angeles and help move the company’s goals forward.
While this list is certainly not exhaustive, some highlights from 2021 that we are especially proud of include:
- The acknowledgement of Mosser’s excellence at the San Francisco Apartment Association Trophy Awards. Mario Nunez, maintenance technician, and Byron Ixcal, assistant property manager, were honored with awards of excellence at the 2021 SFAA Trophy Awards Show, a premier event that honors the firms, employees and properties that lead San Francisco’s Rental Housing Community. We are sincerely proud of their win—and proud of the others on staff who were deservedly nominated: Juan Hernandez, Jesus Bujaico, Bless McCrary, Maria Villegas, and Jerry Trujillo. We have employees who rise to the challenge and take their responsibilities to our residents to heart.
- Employees Who Go Beyond the Call of Duty. There are some employees that just beg to be acknowledged—they’re a great colleague, go beyond the call of duty, pick up the slack, look for innovative ways to be of service for residents and are unfailingly reliable. Pyoter Charney, project manager and resident manager, and Bless McCrary, senior leasing consultant, are two of them and were deservingly featured on the new Employee Spotlight section of our blog this year. Join us in commending them on a job well done!
- Mural Project. Mosser’s involvement in a San Francisco Tenderloin-based mural project, commissioned by 509 Cultural Center/Luggage Store and funded by the Someland Foundation, continued with the addition of two new murals on Mosser Towers. Mario Ayala’s “Tat2,” a tribute to legendary, Tenderloin born artist Carlos Villa was installed on Mosser Towers, 350 Turk Street, and “Re-double La force” by Erlin-Adones Geffrard, who studied painting and design at San Francisco Art Institute, was installed on Mosser Towers, 455 Eddy Street in the Tenderloin. We believe in contributing to the beautification of the communities where we do business, and these murals add something special in the Tenderloin.
- Green Improvements. We have made several environmentally friendly upgrades this year, both to our properties and our environmental resource management processes. These upgrades include enhancing our technology, introducing smart water-saving fixtures, and increasing energy efficiency, among others. Read more about our most recent green efforts and let’s all be participants in cutting energy usage.
- Philanthropy. Finding new ways to help our community each year is important to us. This year, we had the pleasure of supporting San Francisco’s Homeless Prenatal Program by providing safe, clean, and stable housing to new and expecting mothers. We also donated and made a commitment to Urban Alchemy, with whom we are now partnering to support safety in the broader community through better patrolling our streets. With our support, they will also help improve cleanliness and safety.
As the year closes and we head into the holidays, we want to express gratitude to all who make the Mosser Magic possible and rededicate ourselves, as we do every year, to continue serving our residents and communities in 2022. To all, happy holidays.
