Green Shoots: A Measure of Springtime and Success!

Return to Newsletters

The term ‘green shoots’ was coined by Norman Lamont to describe the early signs of growth in the economy following a recession or downturn. Now green shoots applies to nearly any hopeful sign of growth or renewal, from economic recovery to home sales and even the senior housing market. At Solutions Advisors, we’re experiencing our own green shoots with growth of both our consultant business as well as our management contracts. In just the past few months, the management side of our business has expanded as owners and investors recognize the value of a total solutions management company with expertise in business, finance, operations and marketing.

Current SA Management contracts include:

  • Gull Creek – Berlin, Maryland
    Rental Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care – 86 units
  • Spring Meadows – Lansdale, Pennsylvania
    Assisted Living and Memory Care – 114 units
  • Cedar Grove – Parkersburg, West Virginia
    Assisted Living and Memory Care – 102 units
  • The Ambassador of Scarsdale – Scarsdale, New York
    New Development Opened Last Month – Luxury Assisted Living and Memory Care – 115 units
  • Homestead at Hamilton – Hamilton, New Jersey

And we say goodbye to our longtime client since 2009:

  • Princeton Windrows – Princeton, New Jersey
    Luxury Equity 55+ Retirement Living – 294 units

We managed them to success and 100% sold and now they are self-managing!
