Thank You National Apartment Association.

Dallas – Christy Freeland, Chairman of the Riverstone Residential Group, will retire after 34 years of being in the industry. Riverstone credits Freeland with been the driving force in establishing Riverstone’s position in the multifamily industry.
Freeland was one of the founders of Riverstone in 2006 along with current President, Terry Danner. Freeland was instrumental in leading the company through the acquisition of five property management organizations.
“I love Riverstone and the property management business overall,” says Freeland. “We provide people with a place to call home, raise their families and create memories. Each day is different since we are involved in client relationships, business development, financial planning, and, of course, mentoring and working with associates to reach their full potential. I will miss the many people with whom I have worked closely over the years.”
“I am confident that I am leaving the company in very capable hands and I know the company will continue to grow and prosper.” Freeland will continue to work on special projects for the company till the end of this year.
Both Danner and CEO, Walt Smith, tout Freeland’s numerous accomplishments and contributions during her stellar career with Riverstone.
Danner says, “As her business partner, I have had the distinct privilege of working very closely with Christy and I will miss our day-to-day dialogue and group effort. She is a true professional who has been dedicated to driving optimum property performance, providing the best possible service to clients and ensuring our associates have the tools they need to succeed.”
Smith adds, “I have learned a great deal from her in the last few years that I have been associated with her and Riverstone and she has helped prepare all of the senior executives by being a great mentor and teacher of her trade. She will be sorely missed, and we wish her great health and happiness in this next chapter of her life.”
Political Action Committee – National Apartment Association (NAA) files Amicus Brief in mold case (two infant deaths in mold filled apt – Wasatch Prop Mgmt) citing US Chamber/ACOEM ‘litigation defense report’ to disclaim health effects of indoor mold & limit financial risk for industry
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
Information about Riverstone Residential, the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency, and the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments in Baton Rouge, Louisiana allowing tenants to be exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from molds by intentionally concealing evidence
Irrefutable evidence indicates that Riverstone Residential, Guarantee Service Team of Professionals, & plaintiffs’ attorney, J Arthur Smith III, must have agreed to exclude evidence that would have shown the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments & Riverstone Residential had knowledge of the severe MOLD INFESTATION at the complex before we moved in
