Should You Hire a Leasing Firm?

What is the difference between a leasing agent and an Occupancy Hero?

A leasing agent works to find and sign tenants to a lease agreement on behalf of a landlord or property owner. Essentially this is the standard answer for most leasing agents.  But “occupancy hero” leasing agents are truly heroes because we specialize in leasing and much, much more.  Our services extend beyond the industry standard.  Our hero agents are seasoned and successful with astounding closing rates to back up that claim.  We offer a “total leasing solution,” utilizing our expertise in marketing, leasing and training to get our client’s results fast.  Using a proactive approach, we also provide extended services like maintenance and cleaning to better prepare your property for optimum results.  It’s our process and our stellar customer service that takes us from ordinary to extraordinary.  For more information on our process, please visit “How We Achieve” to learn how we make it happen.
