Upcoming Event

The Power Close
Presented by Trainer Don
March 11, 2015
9 - Noon
FREE to SLAA Members

This is an all-in-one class, founded on the method of “Always Be Closing”.  Effective sales and leasing requires a complete team effort.  Maintenance must be consciously involved, realizing they are the key to curb appeal.  Housekeeping must be involved realizing they are the key to interior first impressions.  Management must be involved realizing they are the key to leasing goals and employee motivation.  And finally, the leasing team must be fully engaged, disciplining distractions and focusing on a step-by-step method proven to increase closing ratios.  In this program we discuss, advertising, email, telephone, curb appeal, personal appeal, demonstration, overcoming objections, asking for the application, follow-up and a focus on renewals. 

Anyone who attends this class needs to put on their seatbelt for a rollercoaster ride that will take them through hills of techniques, loops of laughter, curves of closes and steep dives of surprises!  Everyone will leave with their stomachs hurting from laughter, their notebooks full of unique motivating ideas to implement and a new found “Power” to close.

Event Highlights

What a way to begin the New Year!

On January 20 over 130 members attended “The Magnificent Marketer”, presented by Lori Snider. What a great turnout! Thank you for your support! The feedback was outstanding! 

“I took away so many things from this seminar; my favorite part was the importance of making our community unique.”   

“The one thing I learned was to have fun with your marketing. It isn't just about getting people in the door but constantly showing them that your community has personality so that they want to come back!”

“I enjoyed hearing current trends and stats...and great ideas on how to market not only your property but being able to add the information into other areas of your life as well.”

In addition to the presentation, 5 members were honored for recently completing the necessary requirements to earn their Certified Apartment Manager (CAM) designation! They worked very hard for 3 months to achieve this outstanding accomplishment! Congratulations to - Carrie Vancil, The Lipton Group; Stacy Romano, The Lipton Group; Carol Lewis; Maxus Properties; Nicole White, Fairway Management and Amy Brielmaier, Maxus Properties! Way to go ladies!

A huge thank you to our event sponsors; Daryl Bianco with CATCO; Andy Jankowski with RealPage; Grant Augenstein with EverReady and Matt Mueller with Sentry Security. We appreciate your support and hope you and your company benefit from this networking opportunity.
