Our Team


Jean Bartz

Regional Property Manager

Office:  Wisconsin Dells, WI

Focus: Jean oversees a portfolio of 11 Section 42 properties, both multifamily and senior, in western Wisconsin and Iowa. She helps to ensure resident satisfaction in their beautiful and affordable apartment homes.

Experience: Jean graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and maintains her Real Estate Broker’s License, HCCP, and ARM certifications. With over 6 years in property management, Jean has managed affordable, market rate, and luxury student housing, and loves her current role of helping our residents improve their lives through affordable housing.

Impressive Facts: Jean has a track record of hard work and dedication.  Starting as an onsite Resident Manager, she has worked her way up to a Regional position with Commonwealth Management Corporation.  Her first CMC property managed was a new lease-up that received a superior WHEDA rating upon first-year review.

Fun Stuff: She loves her small town life in Wisconsin Dells spending time with her husband, daughter, 2 dogs, and 2 cats.  Hiking, reading, watching the Packers, and outside work at her piece of country tranquility are her main pursuits outside of work.

Commonwealth is making a difference in the lives of our residents every day.  Providing affordable housing is a passion and Jean always maintains that someone’s financial status does not determine their worth.  Working with CMC and the Section 42 program allows Jean to show people every day that they are worth everything good in life.

Commonwealth has been extremely professional and courteous to the staff and the residents still living in our facility. They exceeded our expectations during the construction project as well as during the renovation of a 1923 school. Both projects have turned out to be beautiful and successful for our community.
