By Page Austin, Harvest Lifestyle Manager
Last month, the new CEO for FirstService Residential came to Argyle to visit Harvest. FirstService Residential is the management company for the Harvest Homeowners Association.
The new CEO, David Diestel, has heard so much about Harvest that he had to come see it firsthand. For me and my team, it was an honor to share our community with him. After the tour, he stopped us and said he was blown away and not because of all of the amenities, but by our passion and love for our residents. He said “you can see and feel the passion.” It really left an impression on him.
After David’s visit, our team had a renewed sense of pride for our community and our job. We were able to see with new, fresh eyes how amazing it is to live in a place where neighbors connect, gather, and do life together. A place where kids ride their bikes and families play at the park. A place where the staff at the Farmhouse Coffee & Treasures knows your name and how you like your coffee. A place that offers something for every stage of life. This is why I love coming to work each day.
I am thankful for David’s visit. Being reenergized, I realize how grateful I am to have a job that I love! The reason I am able to do great things for my community is because I love the things I do. I love planning events; connecting with neighbors; loving on the kiddos; learning the teen lingo; mentoring tweens/teens; and helping neighbors feel like they belong.
Having a fresh perspective has given me energy and excitement. It’s also a great reminder for everyone to always make time to pause and reflect so that you can fill your cup and bring fresh eyes to whatever task is at hand.
