Why I’m passionate about commercial real estate:

Commercial real estate is a business’s home. Just as people like their home to be comfortable and fit their needs, commercial real estate needs to be comfortable and beneficial to the business. There’s nothing I find more rewarding than helping building owners achieve results from their investments.

My most trying yet rewarding experience:

It took a long time to create my own company, and a lot of hard work. It took 11 years of working and learning the market and best practices to get where I am now, before I earned a reputation as a commercial real estate expert.

When I’m not working:

My wife and kids and I spend weekends in the summer at Raystown Lake. My two boys love going for boat rides and making fires in the evening. When I’m on my own time, I’m building things at home—I always have a few projects going at once.

Shelli Lewis

Senior Property Manager

Since 1994, Shelli Lewis has helped her clients and tenants in a variety of transformational ways. From developing and maintaining tenant and vendor relations to handling emergency repairs and project management, Shelli is all about service.

One overlooked responsibility in property management is financial accounting. Since clients care about their bottom line, Shelli ensures outstanding financial management that guarantees goals are met.

From lease administration to annual budget preparation and long term capital planning, AushCo knows what a client needs. As the senior property manager, Shelli makes it happen.

A typical day for me:

No two days are ever alike, and I love the variety and challenges each day brings. There are always new things to learn and new problems to solve. I am very much a people person and I enjoy the relationships I have with my clients, tenants, and vendors.

My most trying yet rewarding experience:

Emergency repairs are probably the most taxing experience of my job—after all, they are emergencies. However, these situations can also be the most rewarding in that I am able to take control of what may seem like an immeasurable task for the client or tenant, and handle on his or her behalf.

When I’m not working:

When I’m not managing properties, I enjoy gardening, especially vegetable gardens. My grandmother and I used to garden together and then can the harvested vegetables. This memory is dear to me, and I carry on her traditions in her honor. I derive great pleasure from sharing a jar of jelly or salsa with friends and family.
