With more than 300 options, from countertops to flooring to accessible features, Windsong Properties allows its active adult buyers to personalize their homes at its design center. To give expert design advice, the builder recently hired a new design center manager, Amy Ackerstein. “Amy impressed us with her credentials and passion for design," said Carrie Roeger, operations manager for Windsong Properties. “We know our home buyers will thoroughly enjoy working with her at the design center. She will make the selection process smooth and fun." A graduate of Syracuse University, Ackerstein has been in the home building industry for almost 20 years and has received multiple management awards for excellence. Previously, she worked at Armstrong World Industries and as the design center manager for Ryland Homes. There, she helped customers, coached and mentored employees, managed the budget, trained other design center managers on new selection software, created marketing tools and increase satisfaction by setting proper expectations. At Windsong Properties, Ackerstein will be responsible for working with vendors to order samples, meeting with customers to make selections and showcasing the center’s gallery of photos. In addition to her gift for design, she loves sports. Ackerstein was a Big East Athlete of the Decade nominee and has even been inducted into the Jewish Community Center Sports Hall of Fame in Columbus, Ohio and the Bexley High School Athletic Hall of Fame. In the fall of 2013, Ackerstein spoke about athletics and its influence on her at the Temple Kol Emeth (TKE). “I’m excited about working with Windsong buyers," said Ackerstein. “I hope to make their experience enjoyable and can’t wait to see their new homes really accentuate their personal styles."
