    Never raise your voice
    Focus on what you can do to help
    Use open body language and gestures - specifically with open palms
    Speak in slow, even tones
    Choose your words skillfully
    Always tell the truth

    "It was a wonderful and highly rewarding experience to provide real solutions to one of the issues property managers face every day," says Sigmund. "Residents become difficult when they are unhappy with their overall living experience, when they feel their voices are not being heard, or when they are dealing with stressors in their personal lives. My focus is to empower other property management professionals with the tools they need to change the outcome of a stressful situation."

    Ms. Sigmund is a past president of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) Central Pennsylvania Chapter and has served as president of the Pennsylvania / Delaware Affordable Housing Management Association (PennDel AHMA) during 2010 and 2011.
