Great amenities are the foundation of a fantastic community, but it’s people who bring it to life. That’s why Revel communities hire the best team members, and their goal is simple: supporting residents in achieving their goals.
The first residents of Revel Issaquah moved in a few months ago, and they’ve already started shaping the new community. Lifestyle Director Jack Waldie organized the first few events, and residents quickly took the lead adding their own film clubs, hikes in Issaquah’s lush forests and more. The community is taking shape, and the team members are thrilled to support residents in everything they hope to pursue.
Meet the team: Associate Executive Director, Nichol Preciado
Nichol Preciado is new to Revel Issaquah, but her resident-first mentality makes her the perfect choice for Associate Executive Director.
“For me, the goal is to get to know our residents, know their story, and find out what’s important to them,” she says. “I have these conversations on a daily basis, listen to them share, and then take action to deliver personalized and meaningful results. That’s what it’s all about!”
Preciado brings over 15 years of experience with her to Revel, and looks forward to bringing operational excellence, continuous improvement and leadership development to the community. That, and a devotion to residents.
“Today I had a conversation with a resident who shared how much she appreciated Coffee Chatter and the other resident-led activities. That confirms for me that Revel isn’t just home, it’s an experience that each resident can tailor for themselves,” she says. “Revel offers choice. You can live the kind of life you want to live.”
Meet the team: Maintenance Director, Christopher Bean
One of Revel Issaquah’s newest residents was having trouble with her entrance door, which kept slamming shut. So she gave Christopher Bean a call.
“With the help of Eric in Maintenance, we were able to fix her door, adjust the height of her closet hangers and make repairs to her bathroom exhaust fan. She was very pleased to get everything customized to her satisfaction, right after moving in,” Bean says.
Bean is a 30-year veteran of hotel hospitality and says meeting new people and helping others brings him joy. You can get a sense of his friendly style by following along on his daily security checks. He makes sure all doors and access points are secured, but he also stops to say hello to everyone he meets.
“We greet our residents with pleasantries throughout the day to let them know they matter, and to show we’re looking out for them.”
