    (San Bernardino, Calif.) The Magnolia at Highland, San Bernardino’s newest senior living apartment community for those 62 or better, fuses luxury living with a management team and style that is reflective of the diverse community it serves.

    Conveniently located at 2196 Medical Center Dr. in San Bernardino (at the corner of Highland and Medical Center Drive), the Magnolia at Highland is managed by Western Seniors Housing Inc., a management company that strives to create an environment for seniors where the quality of life is as important as life itself.

    The resident manager of this 80-unit community, which features spacious one and two bedroom apartments, is Daysherri Terry, a native of San Bernardino. Terry brings more than 11years of senior property management experience.

    “I think property management is in my blood,” said Terry. “I followed in my mother’s footsteps, who worked for Cal American managing properties when I was a kid. I truly love property management for one simple reason – compassion.  This trait is even more essential when working with seniors. The little things mean so much and consistency is key. I love being able to help my seniors with making their day better in every way.”

    Terry, joined Western Seniors Housing this past summer, during the Magnolia at Highland’s development stage.  She immediately assembled a management team that possessed the skills and experience she needed to make this senior community a pleasant and comfortable home for area seniors.

    “All members of my team are from the local area,” said Terry. “Each person has a background that is amazing. They take their job very serious and are dedicated to making this a wonderful place for our residents. I am very proud of them all. They are very thorough.”

    Boasting an impressive 70 percent occupancy since opening this past Christmas, Terry gives much of the credit to team member Julio Martinez.  Another native of San Bernardino, as leasing consultant Martinez brings 15 years of property management experience to the team, playing a key role in getting the property move-in ready.

    “We all live in the area, which really makes a difference in understanding what the needs of the community are and what they have been lacking and wanting for so long” says Martinez. “We care about our residents, who may have been our neighbors. As a result, we work hard to offer them the best service available.”

    Charged with making the Magnolia at Highlands comfortable and more like home is maintenance technician Phil Holmes. A resident of Fontana, Holmes has six years of property management experience, and understands the importance of his duties when it comes to senior luxury living, and that beautiful buildings and landscaping are only part of the job.

    “My desire is to make the community a home for the residents, one without worries or care. The smallest inconvenience such as a bad light bulb is important to seniors. Even a defective doorbell is important. With seniors, customer service and standing behind what you say is crucial,” said Holmes.

    Rounding out the team is Assistant Manager Gamille Nash. Born and raised in San Bernardino, she is new to property management, making the transition after working for 10 years as a office manager. What she enjoys most about her new position is the interaction with seniors.

    “Being able to help seniors is really a wonderful feeling. They have so much knowledge and history to share,” said Nash. “The residents here love their new home and will be able to participate in social and educational programs provided on site. This is really an upscale environment right here in San Bernardino, complete with a dedicated staff to help them with all their daily needs at an affordable price.”

    The Magnolia at Highland offers apartments that are very spacious and complete with upscale appointments such as solid wood cabinetry, granite counter-tops, built in computer desk, central heat and air conditioning, modern appliances, with walk in showers in some units.

    The beautiful grounds feature a landscaped courtyard with a tranquil fountain and outdoor fireplace in a resort like outdoor patio area with shade trees, barbecue grills, a large swimming pool, spa and multiple areas for relaxed seating.

    The amenities don’t end there. For those residents who prefer to participate in activities indoors, there is a computer center, fitness center, billiards room and also a clubhouse offering resident programs through the nonprofit organization EngAGE.

    EngAGE transforms aging and the way people think about aging by turning affordable senior apartment communities into vibrant centers of learning, wellness and creativity.

    The Magnolia at Highland is an affordable housing apartment community with 25 one bedrooms still  available at $690.  Applicants must meet income qualifications.
