IPC finds the right attitude at Avanti Residential’s Latitude Apartment Homes and Casitas

By Michelle Howland

What’s the best way to beat back the summer heat in the Valley? How about hanging out in a really cool space. That’s just what the AMA Industry Partners Committee (IPC) did in July for its summer tour. Avanti Residential’s Latitude Apartment Homes and Casitas hosted approximately 50 industry partners.

Dustin Kerby with Air Speed HVAC was the lucky winner of the lunch raffle with Stephanie Fossum, a regional managerOn-site Manager Mindy Ross and her team at Latitude put on an amazing spread and even provided some cool “beverages.” The property created a large balloon arch made just for the occasion that helped set the tone for the event.

Allison Walentowicz, Vice President of Marketing, shared the Avanti story with the group. Allison shared that they are a new management company only having been on the scene for 3 years. One of the most interesting parts was how they came up with the Avanti name, great story. (See below).

About Avanti Residential

At Avanti Residential, we do things a little differently. In an industry focused on profit, we put people first. As it turns out, good returns follow. We own and operate approximately 7,500 apartment homes in Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Kansas, and Florida. We’re “people people.” Our goal every day is to make living and working with us easy and enjoyable. That’s why exceptional customer service and uncompromising integrity are top priorities at every level of our organization. When choosing a company name, we came across the story of the famed WW II, Colorado-based, 10th Mountain Division. They were the only American division of its size trained to fight in winter and mountain terrain – and were specifically training for an invasion of Italy.

In that spirit, their rally cry was Italian – Sempre Avanti. Meaning “Always Forward.” We saw the beauty and the strength in these words and adopted Avanti as our business name. We’re always looking forward as a company. A secondary meaning of “Sempre Avanti” is “Always Welcome” which serves as a guiding principle for our valued residents.
