District Manager

One of three district managers at Buckingham, Katie Reed is currently responsible for six properties in three states, specializing in fee managed client relationships. Starting her career in the industry with Buckingham as an assistant manager at a Class C property, Katie has worked her way up at an impressive pace thanks to her continued success. Reaching and maintaining a 95% occupancy for a Class C, 1,100-unit property that was going through a renovation and phase II construction process, managing an HOA, the lease up of a new, mixed up student property with 354 beds, and the lease up of a Class A, fee managed, mixed use development are just a few highlights of Katie’s resume at Buckingham. In addition to her three stabilized properties, Katie currently is handling three lease ups in 2017, including Aertson Midtown, a Class A mixed use project, Highland Quarters, a fee managed student living property, and The Flats at Austin Landing, a Class A market rate fee managed apartment homes.

Katie is a strong advocate for bring your dog to work day, which still hasn’t been approved thanks to some not-so-fun facility managers on staff, so instead, she spends her free time with her fur baby, Busta, at home with her husband. Being recruited into the real estate business in high school, Katie is proud to have made it as far as she has with Buckingham and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for her role and the company as a whole.

“I make sure that my team knows that we are all in this together. We all share the successes and missteps. The most important thing for me is to make sure they are learning and growing in their careers under my wing."
