We Honor Nancy Ahlswede


Nancy Ahlswede

We honor Nancy Ahlswede who passed away December 14, 2016.  Nancy was the Executive Director for the Apartment Association, California Southern Cities for 28 years. Her passion for the industry, drive to protect landlords, owners, property managers and property management companies went beyond the boundaries of her job.  Nancy wrote the book on how to get legislation through all the red tape in Sacramento and was known throughout the region for her tenacity and drive.

Nancy served on many committees and was a constant presence at the City Council of Long Beach, where she spent many hours working with the City Council representatives to understand the multi-family industry.  In the words of one of our members who knew her well, she writes, “Nancy was definitely destined to be a leader of this organization that so generously devotes their time and energy in fighting for the rights of people in the rental and housing industry both for owners as well as for tenants.  Her amazing knowledge combined with strength in getting things ‘Done,’ and warmth with a sense of humor,  always provided anyone interested in seeking a career in property management the understanding of how great serving people truly is”.

Her legacy will live forever and she will be greatly missed.  As we plan to honor her, please watch our website and Facebook for updates.  The Association will also be dedicating the February magazine to her memory.  Please send the Association (at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
