An Apartment Leasing Agent must know the client’s needs. He must also know the real estate market in order to fulfill the client’s request. This kind of agent must be available at all time, because at any time the client can come for renting an apartment. You need to explain to the client where the apartment is, when it was built, what kind of accommodation does it have, and how long does he want to rent the apartment for.

It is compulsory for you to have a driver’s license. Without this you can’t apply for the job because such professionals have to travel a lot. One must be willing to work under extreme pressure and finish the task within a particular deadline.

A good resume must contain information on educational background, professional expertise and hobbies.
