VAMA First Visit Leases

2:00 – 3:15 PM

Where Have All the First Visit Leases Gone? Presented by Lia Nichole Smith

Leasing apartments is a tricky game to play.  Most prospects tour 4 to 6 apartment communities before selecting the one they feel deserves their commitment and most importantly, their money.  So who wins the lease?  In this session, you’ll learn how a few minor changes can yield big results and more leases.  1.6 million survey responses can’t be wrong.  Connect with your prospects by giving them what matters most.  Make the connection – get the lease.  It really is as simple as that!  And once you’ve mastered the first visit leasing game, parlay those skills into securing more renewals and increasing your community’s bottom line.
