KARI NEGRI

President

Kari Negri, CEO of SKY has been known to always be at the forefront of any aspect of property management. But despite her busy schedule and her commitment to provide a level of excellence to her clients, Kari is also very passionate about helping the community. 

 

Kari and her husband, Mike Donatelli bought their current home in Toluca Lake in 2007 with their daughter, Skyla (29).  Enzo (11) entered the picture on Cinco de Mayo 2009.  She began as the Treasurer of TLHOA in 2010 and was on the TLHOA Board for 5 years before terming out. She came back in 2017 and became President in 2020 just in time for the whole world to shut down.  Although it felt like the whole world had gone crazy our community stayed united in spirit and came together to provide those in need comfort and in some cases food, social distanced fun as well as a strong sense of community for anyone who wanted to get involved.  

 

On top of being a very busy CEO and the president of TLHOA, Kari also sits on the Board of Directors for AAGLA (Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles), where she is the California Delegate to the National Apartment Association (NAA) and a frequent advocate in both Sacramento and Washington, D.C. She is also the author of “ask Kari” in the Apartment Age.  She is the VP of Membership on the Board of NHPD (PALS). Kari is a highly-sought-after speaker at several trade shows throughout the country, touted as a multi-family real estate expert; she is an instructor for continuing education courses, she holds a real estate license, she is a building owner herself, and a proud mother of two!
