Meet Our Team: Johanna Knapic

I apprenticed with Birgo Realty through a startup program called Praxis as what I thought was a gap year during college. I ended up dropping out of the hospitality and human resource program I was in to accept the full-time offer that followed. I started my apprenticeship as general support, next moved to short-term rental management, then to property management with a focus in short-term rentals.
