A bit about us
We’re a venture-backed startup on a mission to change the future of hospitality and home. With properties in some of America’s most-loved cities, our unique platform allows buildings to blur the line between hotels and apartments. This all-in-one solution includes property operations, customer acquisitions, and the tech stack to operate with more flexibility than any other company in the market.
Our tech-enabled buildings create one-of-a-kind guest experiences and tremendous value in the underlying real estate. Whether guests are with us for a night, a year, or somewhere in between, these are more than just spaces to spend the night—they’re a place to call home.
Our property team members bring our business to life at each building, focusing on execution, along with resident and guest experience. Our non-property team members support property execution and the evolution of other areas within our platform.
The Impact You'll Have
At Placemakr, we believe that finding the perfect place to call home is a transformative experience. As a Leasing Agent, you will play a pivotal role in delighting our residents throughout their journey, making them feel valued and supported from their first tour to their move-in day and beyond. We are seeking individuals who embody Placemakr’s Community Norms and pride themselves on building strong rapport with everyone they meet to guide prospective residents through the leasing process with professionalism, expertise and the Placemakr personal touch. As an integral member of our on-site Property Team, you will embody our Property Team Mission with each tour and interaction, and consistently demonstrate that making a positive impact on our resident’s journey is the core of our operation.
This is a full-time position requiring ability to work during the week, weekend, evenings and holidays. The exact days of the week will be rotational.
This position is based in Atlanta, GA.
The rate of pay for this position is $22 an hour.
