Why We Built Intuitive Management Partners
Creating A Better Way of Life...
Intuitive Management Partners was founded by Whitney Ward in 2019 behind the principles and fundamentals that Creating a Better Way of Life starts by identifying the needs of the residents, communities and the property. The operations of an apartment asset is the foundation and heartbeat of a successful community and our goal is to deliver solutions that improve housing opportunities & resident experiences, aid in the sustainability & life span of the property, expand opportunities for our team members and achieve the goals of our partners.
Our team is highly skilled and experienced in property level operations, as well as underwriting, financial modeling and financial deal structuring. We bring over 4,000 units of multifamily investing and real estate management experience and have a proven track record of being able to execute operational business plans.
We are a team comprised of licensed real estate professionals that bring unique and diversified social & economic backgrounds, which allow us to support a more inclusive & rewarding approach to apartment investing.
Our professional affiliations allow us to expand our resources, education and network to continue to bring value within our business services. In addition, our memberships and affiliations require a commitment to ethics & integrity, which gives our residents, communities and partners the confidence to know we value & conduct ourselves in the highest of standards.
