Shainna has been working in property management for 4 years. She started out as a leasing agent was then promoted to Assistant Property Manager, and is now the Property Manager for our Kalamazoo office. She is a West Michigan Native and loves all things Kalamazoo. When she is not playing with her dog you will find a camera in one of her hands and a coffee in the other.


Western Michigan University Alumni. Originally from Muskegon, MI and have lived in Kalamazoo for the last 7 years. I enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking and fishing. I am outgoing and very hard working. I have a Siberian Husky and we love to go to the lake and go on lots of walks. I probably drink more iced coffee than anyone I know. My favorite thing about being in Kalamazoo is the never ending craft beer selection. Other hobbies I have are cooking, spending time with my friends, and being outside.


My name is Zack McCarty. I am 32 years old. I have been with my wife for 16 years and have 3 monsters together. I have been doing construction/ building for around 15 years. I worked for a preservation company for around 5 years working on foreclosed homes and buildings. I’ve also done everything from building custom swimming pools to well and septic inspections. I started working for American Realty in August 2019. I enjoy working with my hands and bringing life back to some of these properties. I’m a jack of all trades really, from plumbing to electrical to framing. I enjoy what I do and look forward to working with all the tenants this year.
