Caleb is a Field Technician at Real Property Management Consultants.  He handles our vacant property turnovers by evaluating what needs to be done to get the property ready to be back on the market and then does carpentry, paint touchup, etc. – whatever is needed.  He thoroughly evaluates our properties to ensure safety, compliance and helps to make things nice for the next tenant.  Caleb also handles a portion of the photography attempting to capture the spirit of homes to best represent them in our online advertising.  He also loves taking landscape photos.

Caleb has a degree in Graphic Arts and loves woodworking projects and spending time in his home workshop.  Spending time with family is important to Caleb and he can often be found hanging out with his young nieces and nephews.


If you’ve called recently, you may have heard Joesela’s friendly voice answering the phone at Real Property Management Consultants.  She does a great job answering questions or helping callers get to the person that can help them.  She also handles the dozens of inquiries we get each day on vacant properties from people looking for a home in the Kansas City area.  She helps them schedule times to go and view the properties and see if it is the right one for them.  When not with a client or customer, Joesela does work ensuring any applications are complete and ready to be turned over to Leasing and also works on some of our backend processes like auditing to make sure everything is complete and documented where and how it should be.

Joesela’s favorite day of the week is Sunday as she gets to spend quality time her family.  In her leisure time, she enjoys baking, cooking and looking for improvement opportunities by attending workshops and watching educational videos.  All of these qualities and the passion she has for her work helps Joesela make a positive impact on our company.
