Geyser’s Austin Team Builder 2022

The Geyser team got together two weeks ago in Austin for our annual team builder, and it couldn’t have gone any better! We believe that our team of hardworking, passionate, and driven individuals is what sets us apart from the pack. The team builder consisted of presentations from each team member, a book club discussion, and some time on Lake Travis. Here is a summary of Geyser’s Austin Team Builder 2022. 

Day One: Leadership Team Building 

Monday started with a leadership team builder where the executive team went through critical drivers of our success, what we learned throughout 2022, and what the future of The Geyser Group will look like. Throughout the day, we realized that our team plays an integral role in our success. Our team comes from very diverse backgrounds, and each employee brings a different set of skills to the table. Overall, we are very grateful for our employees and their dedication to making Geyser a powerhouse Commercial Real Estate and Investment firm. 

Day Two: Company Team Building (On Lake Travis) 

Tuesday started in the office with numerous discussions about the potential for growth moving into 2023, and ended with an afternoon on Lake Travis. Our newest Financial Analyst Intern, Reece Jumonville, gave the team a “Wake Surfing 101” lesson and we were off to the races. Check out the video of Reece showing us how it’s done! 

Day Three: Team Presentations, Crucial Conversations, and Finishing 2022 Strong

Wednesday, our final team building day, was stacked with team wide-presentations and a book club discussing Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler‘s book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When the Stakes are High. Our team discussed everything from the state of the market to, acquisition strategy, capital markets, marketing, and sustainability across all future projects. The presentations were very beneficial in getting everyone on the same page, and allowed for a free-flow of discussion and feedback. As a team, we learned more about each other’s goals for their department and what we are all are doing to work towards those goals. 

Crucial Conversations 

Part of the team builder consisted of having an open conversation about the book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When the Stakes are High. The book gives excellent advice and tools to help improve communication in all aspects of life. The team’s main takeaway was that in order to make smart, efficient decisions, we must utilize our shared pool of meaning. For context, the shared pool of meaning is defined as “drawing on the opinions, feelings, and experiences of two or more people.” It is very crucial for every business, no matter the industry, to know how to have a meaningful conversation that gives both parties resolution and clear next steps. In our eyes, having everyone on the team come together and work through problems yields the best solutions.

So, What’s Next? 

As we enter Q3, Geyser has identified key opportunities that will aid us in our continued commitment to discipline for our limited partners, general partners, and overall investor base. We develop where we live, and creating opportunities for new developments in Central Texas is something that we take pride in. Geyser’s Austin Team Builder 2022 could not have gone any better!

Project Spotlight: The Johnny, Geyser’s Boutique, 76-unit Development in Austin

This month, our Property Highlight series is focusing on The Johnny, a 76-unit multifamily development in East Austin roughly between Downtown and The Domain. Partnering with The Sephira Group, this multifamily project features condominium-like design elements and will offer 16 units of affordable housing for those who earn below 60% of the median family income.

Current Progress on The Johnny  

The Johnny provides a modern solution for those looking to live near the heart of the city in a luxury, boutique development. It is located steps from the red rail line at Crestview Station, and directly adjacent to The Crescent shopping center with quick access to 99 Ranch Market, Kura Sushi, Texas Pizza, and many other specialty stores and restaurants.

The Future of The Johnny 

The Johnny is currently under construction with a completion date set for January 2023. Since breaking ground in November, The Johnny has been full steam ahead on construction and is now framing. This property sits in proximity to the major development corridors along Lamar Blvd and Burnet Road. Additionally, The Johnny is located close to Downtown Austin, The Domain, The University of Texas, the ACC Highland Redevelopment, and Mueller. Who doesn’t want to be close to the action?

The Johnny will provide residents with sophisticated living in a boutique development that offers an alternative to the large 300-unit plus communities that saturate the market.  We are also very excited about our wellness balcony, which will feature a hot and cold swim spa and provide residents with a space to relax and recharge.”  – Managing Director Michael Bernstein
