As a vice president of residential properties for the Towbes Group, a leading local real estate development company, he will bring additional expertise to the board as it continues its mission of finding solutions to family homelessness.

“We’re excited to have Jim join us,” said Transition House Board President Jim Buckley. “One of our current strategic goals is to have a greater impact in creating and maintaining affordable housing. Carillo’s long years of work in the field of residential properties at all levels will be invaluable to us. He also brings a great enthusiasm for our mission of helping motivated families succeed.”

“I look forward to contributing to this great organization helping good people create better lives,” said Carrillo.

Carrillo has been with the Towbes Group since 2005. His current role is vice president of residential properties.

He is a certified property manager and previously worked in Los Angeles for the R & B Realty Group. He also serves on the board of the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
