Brandon Brown Career Background
What is your biggest career achievement?
- My biggest career achievements are getting my property management license. I am one that struggles with test taking and so busy to study. Working a fulltime job, it seemed impossible. After procrastinating, I decided to take the leap of faith and get licensed. Joining my property management class back in July, has taught me to prioritize my time and build a good studying routine. Not only that I was able to balance my work life, but I also found myself able to make studying a habit. Fast forward to today. I do not have to depend on my manager as much. I am able to complete more task on my own. I was promoted! I am proud that I was able to get through it.
What is your ultimate career goal within the rental housing industry?
- My ultimate career goal within the rental industry is to become a regional portfolio manager. I decided that I would attain a career in the apartment industry since I have a passion to assist others. One thing that I learned about myself is that I live by the phrase "start with a smile". I took a leap and successfully passed my property management license class! I am getting closer to achieving my goal! Looking back on my past gives me the motivation to strive to reach the top. I know for a fact, when I am a regional manager that all of these challenges were worth it.
What's one rental housing trend you have your eye on?
- What is the trend that has the power to change the rental housing industry? I would have to say, mobile devices. You can find and rate an apartment community from the palm of your hands. No matter what's your apartment needs are. There are sites that can help narrow down what apartment community best fits you. Having apps such as Zoom can also help, when it comes to communicating when you cannot be in the same room. The world is consistently revolving when it comes to technology and how much we rely on our phones. It helps us to be more spontaneous and offer so much flexibility from the office to the residents or prospects. It feels like mobile devices is a world on its own. Without a doubt, the connectivity and convince is why I believe that mobile deceives has the power to change the rental history.
