There Are Rarely Any Vacancies Now

When my uncle asked me if I would like a job helping him at a new apartment complex, I was very happy to do that. I knew that the pay was good and the benefits are incredible, and I was not going to pass up an opportunity like this. He told me I would need to read up on leasing agent training because the bulk of my job would be selling the appeal of the apartments to prospective tenants. I had been inside several of the apartments trying to decide which one I wanted for myself, so I knew more than enough about the appeal.

What I did not know was how to sell an apartment to someone who is undecided and not ready to commit to living in one of the apartments at my uncle’s complex. Read More »

An Apartment Close to Work

I have lived on the west coast most of my life, but I was excited about moving right outside of D.C. It did not bother me that I did not know a single person there or that I had never been there before. I had done a lot of research on the area before I even submitted my application for a position I really wanted near the nation’s capital, so I knew that I would adjust rather easily. Once I received word the job was mine, I looked at apartments in Manassas Park VA since that was in the general area of where I would be working.

Truth be told, I was glad that I would be in a suburb of D.C. Read More »

Excellent Respite from the Hustle and Bustle of Atlanta

A friend at work suggested I look into apartments in Tucker GA after he listened to me rant yet again about the downsides of living in Atlanta. I think I was going on a tear about the horrific traffic. Atlanta is known nationally as an extremely difficult city to get around in, and I routinely complain about even driving short distances for groceries or the like. He suggested Tucker, which is a town on the outskirts of the city. He and his wife moved there some time ago and they have nothing but good things to say about it.

Another benefit of moving outside the city is that you can avoid a lot of the crime that plagues the inner city. I know a lot of people who have lived here for many years and almost all of them have fallen victim to some sort of criminal issue. Read More »

I Just Got Back from Charlotte

Of course the boss can tell me to do pretty much whatever she wants me to do, this is a family own company even if it is a pretty large one and her family owns every single bit of it. So I spent the last week working for her 18 year old daughter, helping her find a luxury apartments for rent in south Charlotte NC and then moving her in the place. Obviously we wanted to find a place near the campus and that is what we tried to do, but of course she was looking for something nice too. The boss only has the one child and it is a wonder this one did not turn out to be some spoiled rich girl. Read More »
