Great Company, Great Management, Not so Great Pay
Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – September 19, 2014
A typical day as a leasing consultant is to respond to any leads, set appointments, give tours of apartments, help any residents with any problems they have, and work as a team to make sure the complex runs efficiently.
I have learned more skills on how to sell and how to work with prospects. This has developed my sales and I have learned a lot on how to run a company/ complex more effectively.
Management here is great. They make sure every lead is contacted and the communication is spot on. They answer all questions and if they do not know the answer, they will find it out for you and not leave you without one.
You could not ask for better co-workers. Most people that work here have to be able to keep up with constant change and are like-minded individuals. You will not have lazy employees because they will not last as a Leasing consultant.
The hardest part of the job is that there is down time. Summer is crazy, but all the months after can be kind of dull and there will be times where you are looking for anything to do.
The most enjoyable part of the job is selling apartments. They keep stats on everything and it is fun to see where you rank up with all the CIP properties. Plus you get commission.
The only thing with commission is that it is capped. This is annoying because you could sell an apartment for $500 and receive the same commission for selling one at $1500. So pay here is not the greatest. Also managers do not make enough for the amount of work they do.
