Additionally, as a Leasing Specialist, you will:

- Ensure a high level of customer service, retention and satisfaction by helping to resolve ongoing resident issues

QUALIFICATIONS

Our Leasing Specialists share common passions - confidence, creativity and organization. Combining confidence and creativity, our Leasing Specialists reach out to attract new residents, determine their needs, address those needs and then close the sale. Your organizational skills enable you to juggle multiple prospects, existing residents, walk-ins and follow ups all in stride within the course of your day.
