From Maintenance to Management
Have you met our Portage Property Manager, Toby Ernsberger?
Toby started with Holladay Properties in 2012, when his father-in-law introduced him to Director of Facilities, Eric Lindamood. With his previous experience in working with plumbing, electricity and construction, as well as landscape design, Eric hired Toby to be one of our South Bend maintenance technicians. In 2016, Toby, searching for an opportunity for career advancement, applied for Holladay’s open Property Manager position. His familiarity with the portfolio made him a natural fit for the job.
As a Commercial Property Manager, Toby is responsible for managing a portfolio consisting of over 1 million square feet of real estate, including commercial office, medical, and industrial space. He has been largely responsible for expanding our presence in 3rd party management throughout Northwest Indiana, and has recently, with the help of Assistant Property Manager, Amanda Macias, secured contracts for Landscaping and Snow Removal. He has future plans to earn his Certified Property Manager accreditation through the Institute of Real Estate Management.
When not at Holladay, Toby owns Ernsberger Cleaning, a janitorial business, and runs a farm that produces eggs and maple syrup. He and his wife, Danielle, have four children, whom he coaches in basketball, baseball and football. With all of these things on his plate, Toby has become an expert at time management.
Keep up the great work, Toby!
