2017 has been an exciting year so far at Temporary Accommodations! We kicked off this year by tearing down walls, literally! After bringing on eighteen new employees, we expanded our office space at the beautiful Piedmont Business Center in Buckhead Atlanta.
Our new employees come from a variety of regions in the U.S. and add creative, bilingual, and compassionate skills to our team. Temporary Accommodations continues to be strengthened by diversity. The insight each new team member brings to our company makes us better prepared to serve your policyholders. Because we handle every stage of the temporary housing lifecycle, it is important to have a few highly trained individuals working together in seamless process.
Temporary Accommodations is always seeking creative new problem solvers to join our hardworking team. Our headquarters in located in Atlanta, Georgia; however, sales executives are stationed across the country to provide a direct contact for each region we serve. Our disaster response teams are similarly assigned to regions. Working consistently in the same area allows Housing Coordinators to develop networks of localized realtors for a real time understanding of specific city housing markets.
The Temporary Accommodations Hotel Team works around the clock to track impending catastrophic disasters and reserve rooms close in proximity to disaster zones. In these situations it is important to monitor national weather service announcements and projections, as well as internal company data from the past 21 years of business. Temporary Accommodations has strategically responded to natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy, the SoCalGas Leak, and this past year’s deadly Midwestern Tornado Cycle.
Housing Coordinators at TA are the main point of contact for both home insurance adjusters and displaced disaster victims. Our goal is to keep everyone involved on the same page throughout the claim cycle. Having one main point of contact helps reduces both stress and room for error in the claim process. Housing Coordinators undergo catastrophic trauma management training so they are best prepared to work with disaster victims.
TA Housing Specialists continue to manage rental properties and address rental issues that arise while disaster victims are in housing. Before move out, we confirm the home that was damaged has been completely repaired, and if it hasn’t, we process lease extensions, book additional hotel stays, and prepare disaster victims for their return home. Even after move out, TA Housing Specialists follow up to ensure the policyholder’s home is livable and any refundable deposits from the short term rental are returned to the correct party.
Temporary Accommodations has already placed hundreds of families into temporary housing this year. If you would like to join our team, checkout our website for up to date job postings and submit your application and cover letter for consideration.
