Legend of Colorado Springs has announced the hiring of Rebecca Witte as Sales Director. The senior living community is owned and operated by Legend Senior Living®, a Wichita-based company with 41 communities in six states and is expected to open in fall 2020.
Witte had a successful career in the real estate industry for over two decades. She chose to make the switch to senior living six years ago for a very personal reason. “I was a caregiver for both of my parents for almost 12 years. Vascular dementia affected my father while my mother had Parkinson’s Disease.”
She went on to explain that when her father was diagnosed, she was not prepared for the emotional journey the disease imparts. “I hope to share my personal experiences with families facing the same or similar situations,” she said. “I truly want them to understand they don’t have to walk the path of caring for their parents and family members alone. There are resources and services available to make this easier as this is not an easy journey.”
“Rebecca exemplifies great compassion for seniors and their families during a time when they’re making what can be a difficult decision,” said Debi Thomas, Vice President of Business Development. “Her first priorities as Sales Director are assisting in the pre-leasing of apartments, building relationships, brand recognition, and becoming part of the community. Legend is mission driven, and we want our team to become part of the Colorado Springs community, which includes joining civic organizations and finding ways to give back.”
“When I connected with Legend Senior Living, the attraction for me was that the company was founded on faith, care, and compassion.”
“It’s easy for me to fulfill my role as Sales Director with genuine interest, integrity, and morals knowing that our philosophies align,” she explained. “When a career and a passion come together, that’s how I define success! I’m honored to be a part of a team that truly has the family and the resident’s best interest at heart.”
This is Legend’s newest residence under construction and its third location in Colorado. Legend also owns and operates Legend of Broomfield outside of Denver and Meadowview of Greeley. The Colorado Springs sales office recently opened and is now accepting appointments to tour apartment models. It is located at 2435 Research Parkway, Suite 205 and sales experts are available to assist residents in choosing their preferred apartment. Construction began in early May and the community will be complete in Fall 2020.
Legend of Colorado Springs is dedicated to providing the highest levels of personal service and a warm, comfortable, and actively social environment to enrich its residents' lives. It celebrates their unique personalities and lifestyles with services designed especially for their individual needs, so they will thrive in an environment of friendship, family and robust support that values and respects residents' privacy, dignity, and independence.
