Read on to discover all about Jessica, her professional background, and what she enjoys most about working here at Bay Property Management Group.

Meet Jessica DaSilva, Leasing Agent

Jessica joined the team at Bay Property Management Group Philadelphia as a Leasing Agent approximately nine months ago. Before that, she studied Journalism and Sociology at Rutgers State University. But eventually, Jessica went on to work in the real estate industry and was an agent in the Philadelphia area before transitioning to her current role. Jessica loves Philadelphia’s perfect mix of a big city and quaint neighborhood vibes. Each neighborhood is vastly different from one another. In addition, there are so many fantastic coffee shops, restaurants, nightlife, and concert venues to explore. All of which is amidst one of the most historical cities in the country.

A Day in the Life of a Leasing Agent

With coffee in hand, Jessica’s day begins with checking emails and following up with our leads. In addition, she communicates with owners to provide regular updates on the leasing process, conducts tours, guides prospects through the application process, and prepares leasing documents. It is also crucial for Jessica to partner with the property management team to ensure any turnover processes are complete. Thus, making sure that the property is ready to go for upcoming move-ins. When asked what her favorite part of her job was, Jessica responded:

“Every day is different, and I get to be out and about showing people great properties that they’re excited about. I love that I’m not tied to a desk, although that may work for some people.”

Why Jessica Loves Bay Property Management Group

According to Jessica, what sets Bay Property Management Group apart is the employees. She observes that everyone works together very well, not only in the Philadelphia office but across locations. The technology and processes we have in place mean that everything can run more efficiently. That efficiency benefits tenants, owners, and staff and everyone is always happy to help. Her best piece of advice for those considering this field is to be prepared to work hard, stay organized, and come in with a positive mentality. Leasing agents deal with many people and situations, so problem-solving and relating to a different point of view are critically important skills.
