Shannon Vane joined New Colony Property Manangement in 2013 with a background as an investment property owner and as a person with a long-time interest in the real estate industry. Her brother is a broker and her father is a general contractor, which gives her insight into all aspects of renovating, purchasing, selling and renting homes.
Shannon’s primary role is managing the leasing and marketing needs of New Colony Property Management.“I get along well with a wide range of personalities, and that helps me keep our owners and tenants pleased. I am an investment property owner myself, so I understand how an owner thinks and why they think that way, whether they are a landlord by choice or by necessity.”
A sense of accomplishment is what keeps Shannon motivated. She’s faced with many, many tasks during the day, to be managed in a limited time frame. “Crossing an item off the list and knowing that I’ve made someone happy doing it is what keeps me going.”
Now a resident of Frederick, Md., Shannon considers Rockville, Md., her hometown. She enjoys horseback riding and kayaking, and holds a special place in her heart for animals. She is a strong supporter of the Mia Foundation, which is an organization dedicated to giving animals with birth defects a chance to live longer or live better.
Bill Partlow joined the New Colony team in 2011 and serves as the teams Maintenance Coordinator. Bill thrives on the opportunity to help others and in being there when they need him. His 19 years as a sales rep with Coca-Cola prepared him well for meeting urgent demands and handling special requests. The experience also fine-tuned his skills in planning, scheduling, and “bending over backwards to keep the customer happy,” Bill says.
Bill enjoys sports, is a troop leader for the Boy Scouts of America, and teaches marriage classes at his church.
