I'm a stay home mom and I'm ready to go back to work. I would like to find out how I can get my foot in the door for leasing consultant in apartments. I've tried to do as much research as I can and I'm still not getting close. If someone have any suggestions, please let me know. I wanted to look into getting certified but don't know where to look.

Thank you

Look for a National Apartment Leasing Professional course in your area..once you get started on that you will have to work for six months in that field to get certified but it does sound great when you go in for an interview and tell the employer you have already started the course and finished most of the modules

They look at so many resumes, they say. I have experience and I am wondering the same thing.

This business can be tricky, in the sense that it is based 90% on personal compatibility with the rest of the staff. Success or failure depends on preventing a personality clash. I was in the industry for 5 years, and saw a lot of great people lose their jobs or not get hired because of "compatibility reasons", even if they were stellar and superbly qualified. Property Management is not like other industries because of the small office environment and cushy work flow. Things that would never be an issue in other industries are make-or-break situations here. Plus, the staff can be even more cut-throat if they live on-site. I'm not trying to sound negative, these are things I wish someone had told me when I first started years ago.

If you have a lot of knowledge about this company really don't want to pay you..
for the skills you have.... and if yo have been in this line of work for a while
you have something that they need that call experience....
