Read on to discover all about Kristina, her professional background, and what she enjoys most about working here at Bay Property Management Group.
Meet Kristina Marinello, Leasing Manager
Kristina is a proud graduate from Ramapo College of New Jersey with a BA in Communications and a concentration in Business Management. Before joining the Bay Property Management family in June of 2020, she worked in Residential Real Estate for eight years. Through those eight years, Kristina heavily immersed herself in leasing, property management, revenue management, and resident relations.
A Day in the Life of the Leasing Manager
Kristina’s days are busy with responsibilities, including managing the leasing agents, dealing with prospective tenant issues, and marketing all vacancies and new properties. Additionally, she takes all marketing photos, performs administrative duties, sets up new properties in AppFolio, generates renewals, and completes new leases. A leasing manager’s work is never done!
As part of her daily routine, Kristina is continuously following up with residents regarding renewals and checking in with agents regarding showings, leasing questions, or any other issue they may have to make their clients receive the ultimate leasing experience. When asked what her favorite part of her job was, Kristina responded:
“Being able to work with intelligent and goal-driven individuals daily. Also, I am constantly learning about the business and rental market here in Philly, and I truly believe that learning is the key to success.”
Why Kristina Loves Bay Management Group
Kristina believes that here at BMG, we care about our residents and owners. We genuinely want them to receive the best customer service, and we take pride in our job and our reputation. She believes that communication is the key to success in this industry. Her best piece of advice for those considering this field is to ALWAYS communicate, especially with future tenants and current tenants. Following up and answering phone calls or emails is very important.
