A message from the
With a background in real estate and residential property management, James jumped into the senior housing industry in 2008. Since that time, he has held a variety of positions in sales, marketing, and operations. His passion for senior living goes far beyond the brick and mortar aspect of the business. His real passion is to provide quality solutions to residential care and to create a sense of community for the people served. In McKie’s own words, “Senior Living solutions are first and foremost about offering a resident the best quality of life possible. However, our business is also about offering the families of our residents the peace of mind that their love one is safe, happy, and well cared for. My goal is to be of service to the entire family, whether that be a family of one single resident, or an extended family of many.”
– James McKie, General Manager
