Abigail J. Rex, CPM, ARM – Senior Regional Property Manager

Abigail-RexAbigail J. Rex, Senior Regional Property Manager specializing in multi-family and HOA properties, has been with Capital Growth Properties since 2007 and has more than 16 years in the industry altogether. Her approach to her career can be summarized in a quotation from the late, great Steve Jobs: “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” And the best way to understand how much she loves what she does is to quote Abigail, herself:

The thrill of my job is the excitement that comes with it each day as no two days are every the same. Sure, I’ve got routine work, but I love the hustle and bustle of being crazy-mad, and that’s what multi-site, portfolio management gives me. I’m passionate about what I do and who I do it for: the Company, the Team, the Clients, the Heartburn. It’s always welcomed and begged for!

During her tenure at CGP, Abigail has been named Certified Property Manager (CPM) of the Year by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), of which she’s also a member. She’s also a member of San Diego County Apartment Association.

When she isn’t busy indulging her passion for multi-site, portfolio management, Abigail can usually be found cooking, reading, or spending time with her family and friends.
