The Village at Sunriver has hired a new operations manger, Denease Schiffman is now responsible for tenant relations, overall management and assisting with lease agreements. She is quoted in the Sunriver Scene as saying “I spent the first 30 days on the job ensuring that tenants are accommodated due to all the construction, mitigating impacts from the construction by directing traffic flow and ensuring customer access. Every day is different. I walk the property looking for issues. I talk to tenants. I’ve met them all at this point. I’ve never dealt with easier clients in the midst of a construction zone.”
As a property manager Schiffman has 12 years of property management, most of which is commercial. Her experience varies from the U.S. Bancorp Tower in Portland to the simple mom and pop store, she has also worked the Bend retail buildings. I have yet to meet her, but I have heard great things about her attitude and capabilities.
Ryan Smith, who was the director or operations has not left us, he is now focusing on promotions and events to attract shoppers, and guests to the Village.
Phase One continues with the redevelopment, installing new composite roofs on buildings 23, 24 and 25 is basically complete.

Now on to building 22, it is slated to receive new windows, entry doors, cedar siding and some stone work for additional accents. If you are heading to Goody’s or Toy Kingdom, you might anticipate changes in your entry area.
