Area Director for Sioux Falls
Shellie Linn started as the Area Director for the Sioux Falls for Tzadik in March of 2020. Shellie manages the Regional office in Sioux Falls, overseeing all operations for her portfolio’s 27 properties. Shellie works to recruit, develop, guide, and coach District Managers, Community Managers, and other team members to achieve outstanding results and become “A” players. She is accountable for the Sioux Falls region’s financial performance by analyzing local market trends to maximize operating revenue and net operating income.
Shellie started her property management career, not fully realizing the profound impact she would have on the lives she touched nor the impression it would leave on her. She has been humbled by the experience and the opportunity to give others a feeling of pride and security by offering a dignified solution through affordable housing options. She understands the insecurity and emotions tied to not having a stable housing situation and found that this has become a vital part of who she is and the compassion and understanding she has for those in similar situations.
A South Dakota native, Shellie has more than 11 years of property management experience in training, management, and development with conventional, tax credit, HUD, HOME, and RD properties. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Mary in Fargo, North Dakota, and has lived in the Sioux Falls area for over 20 years.
