Sales/Leasing Agent

We are a top luxury apartment leasing service that works exclusively with high-quality, managed apartments in downtown Chicago. Our ideal candidate has a passion for sales and people, is goal-oriented, and likes to hustle! We also love to find people who have sales experience but not specifically real estate experience. We foster a work hard/play hard culture and invest heavily in training. Our ideal candidate is someone we genuinely enjoy spending time with.

We contract and work with more than 60,000 units in downtown Chicago, bringing them high-quality, qualified renters generated from warm leads (no cold calling). This means working in a high touch capacity with customers, through all forms of communication and one-on-one tours. If you don't love talking with, and working with people, we aren't going to be a great fit.

Our training is personal- no videos or classrooms, or pre-set scheduling. You work directly with us, the owners of the business, while we get to know your skills, goals, strengths, and individual opportunities for growth. We tailor our training to combine data-proven best practices with your strengths, and we establish personal goals for you that are tracked in our custom-developed CRM system. This isn't a numbers game for us... each agent is our reputation, so we invest.

This personalized approach has meant extremely low turnover and a great market reputation, both with our properties and our customers. We aren't a company that seeks out a lot of publicity or fanfare. We like to focus on the customer and let our reviews speak for themselves. Check them out : )

Job Responsibilities include:

  • Lead development (which we train)
  • Responding to leads from customers looking for a new apartment (no cold calling).
  • Phone and email communication with customers to discover their search needs.
  • Online research and communication with partner properties to match the customer's needs.
  • In-person tours/showings at properties with customers (some virtual tours)
  • Maintaining customer relationship details using CRM and inventory management systems.

Job Requirements include:

  • Min 5 years sales, sales management or equivalent experience (real estate experience NOT required or preferred).
  • High touch, high sense of urgency that values and respects people's time
  • Great communication, problem-solving and organizational skills.
  • Extremely strong phone and writing skills.
  • Experience using a CRM and inventory database management system.
  • Strong network and/or desire to build a book of business.
  • College education highly preferred.
  • Must live within 30 min of the Loop

We only hire full-time people, and we put a strong emphasis on being experts in our market. We pride ourselves on having a strong sense of urgency and customer understanding. The Southwest Airlines of real estate!

If this sounds like a good fit, we'd love to hear from you!
