Kristin Dumas, now a leasing consultant at The Meritage at Steiner Ranch in Austin, has a career that’s been on the rise and a bright future. What makes her so successful? She’s had a rising career in the apartment industry and a knack for sales, which holds a lot of promise for her in the future.
Since her first taste of apartment leasing years ago, Kristin has been drawn in and out of the industry. She got her break into an apartment job when she was encouraged to apply for a position at the apartment community where she lived. The woman who encouraged her to apply would end up becoming her mentor, and her leasing job would turn into her career.
After a brief break from the apartment industry, Kristin turned back to leasing through Hire Priority, while she was in school and looking for a part-time position. She went in and out of work as she needed it, and later applied for a permanent apartment job when the time was right.
Sales have always come easy to Kristin, and this is what helped her to walk on properties easily. ‘You can feel good about it at the end of the day,’ she says of helping to find people places to live. With all of the experience she has acquired, Kristin now works at a bustling, 500+ unit property in Austin. Kristin’s dedication and ability to thrive in this fast-paced environment have set her up for success as well as a promising future in the apartment industry.
