CRIS BERKEL | Inspections Officer

Cris is an Inspections Officer with Dixon’s Security & Inspections department. In this role, Cris performs bi-annual tenant inspections, meets with state inspectors, provides ad-hoc security support as needed and ensures that the interior and exterior of all Dixon properties meet inspection standards.

“My favorite part of my job is working out in the field, meeting and interacting with a diverse pool of tenants. I think the most important skill for an individual in my position is the ability to communicate effectively with a variety of people. My background as a police officer has helped me to refine this skill and function efficiently as an inspections officer.”
