Golden Girls

(L-R) Joy Buttrey, Robbie Hemmerly, Mary Massey & Zee Terry

Few companies, especially property management companies, get to brag that they have people who have been working at their firm as a property manager for thirty years. One of Ghertner & Company’s strongest assets has been the hard work of four famous property managers, Zee Terry, Mary Massey, Robbie Hemmerly and Joy Buttrey, each of whom is a member of our “30 year club.”

Joy Buttrey began as an Administrative Assistant early in 1984 and became a property manager in 1988. Properties in Joy's portfolio include Cherry Hill/Maples, New Hope Meadows and Rolling Meadows. Joy is now the only remaining “Golden Girl” at the firm, charged with the directive to turn the lights out for the others whenever she decides to leave. Fortunately for Ghertner & Company and her customers, that isn’t going to happen for a long time. 

Robbie Hemmerly retired in 2008, after her thirty year anniversary with the firm. Robbie started as an On-Site Property Manager at the Fawnwood Apartments in 1978. When that property was sold, Robbie became a Property Manager. Properties in Robbie's portfolio included Jefferson Square, Georgetown and Fieldstone Farms. 

Mary Massey started at Ghertner & Company in 1983 as an Administrative Assistant, and became a Property Manager in August 1994. Properties in Mary's portfolio included Westfield and Riverwalk in Bellevue as well as Franklin Green and Ivy Glen in the Franklin area. Mary retired in May of 2013. She is enjoying being able to spend more time with her grandchildren.

Zee Terry started with Ghertner & Company in 1982, as the Office Manager; after eight years away from the company she returned in 1996 as an Administrative Assistant, and became a Property Manager in 1998. Properties in Zee’s portfolio included Colony Downs, Oakwood and Mansker Farms.Zee retired in March of 2013. She and her husband Micky “hit the road” and are traveling the country in their RV.
