Kathy’s hybrid marketing plans are a unique blend of new technology and updated tried and true techniques that generate traffic in today’s unpredictable apartment markets. Her assessments and plans have produced many successful “lease ups” generating increased income for owners and investors.

SPEAKING & TRAINING
Kathy created the Lease Up! Pro Learning Series consisting of programs on leasing, marketing, Fair Housing and customer service for management, leasing and maintenance professionals that she presents to apartment associations and private companies across the US.
One-on-one coaching services give leasing consultants immediate critique of their selling skills. Kathy helps consultants discover their own personal style and when combined with effective leasing skills, helps build confidence and in the end rents more apartments.
Mystery shops provide an invaluable training tool by providing feedback to the leasing or sales consultant about their interaction with a potential renter or buyer. Trained shoppers relate their experience by shopping the consultant and or community via the internet, over the phone or in person. Shops are available for both apartments and new home developments.
