WHO WE ARE

Christie Lloyd Ernst

Vice President of Property Management

Education:
B.S. Double Major - International Business Administration and Information Technology - Marquette University - Milwaukee, WI

Role:
I oversee a portfolio that includes nearly 4,000 apartment units in more than 47 apartment communities located primarily in Sioux Falls, SD but extending into Harrisburg, Tea, Brookings and North Sioux City. I also play a role in the development of new communities both for Lloyd Companies and third-party owners, providing finishing options, marketing and management guidance in the planning stages of new projects.

Professional Passion:
Growing up our kitchen table was also the Lloyd Companies boardroom but at that time I called it the "bored" room.  Through the years I have gained a great appreciation for real estate and how we are able to have a positive impact on our investors, community and employees through our family business. 

Personal Passion:
I am the proud mother of two beautiful children. I enjoy traveling and when doing so I am always looking for ideas to incorporate in our next project.

Volunteerism:
Feisty Fighters, non profit raising funds for cancer related organizations - Board member 2007 to present

Proudest Professional  Moment:

I was tasked with setting up our governance process/system.  Along with my family and our management team we worked over 3 years to get an advisory board in place.  This was a key move to professionalizing our management team and making Lloyd Companies a family owned (not necessarily managed company) for generations to come.  

What most people don't know about me :
I am a morning person and so I generally start my day when my alarm goes off at 3:20 am.  

The best part of my job is:
I work with an amazing and talented team of people and in an environment that encourages "out of the box" thinking.  Our culture promotes doing things "the Lloyd way" and so we can be proud of each project we develop, build and manage.
