With new construction reaching record numbers across the country, existing assets are struggling to compete. Throw in some concessions that new apartment use to entice renters, and you've got a difficult market. Luckily, PMA is here to help! Attend the March 28, 2019 Leasing Summit with Lisa Trosien to learn how to lease any apartment in today's ultra-competitive market. 

Attend the Leasing Summit to:

  • Learn how to assess the competition and make your community stand out from the crowd.
  • Explore what you can do and offer when you don’t have all the amenities found in new properties.
  • From telephone to closing, review the critical components of an effective and productive leasing presentation.
  • Master storytelling as a sales technique.



A frequent multifamily speaker for the National Multihousing Council and other associations, Lisa started out as a leasing professional who worked part-time to finance her undergraduate studies. Upon discovering how much she enjoyed leasing and the apartment industry as a whole, Lisa decided that she would use her teaching degree and apply what she had learned in school to the industry she had grown to love. A dedicated professional, Lisa has contributed to different leasing programs all around the United States. The curriculum development and content specialist has a column titled “On Site Solutions” in UNITS magazine of the National Apartment Association. Apart from UNITS, Lisa is also a member of Professional Apartment Magazine’s Editorial Advisory Board and a contributor to publications such as the Journal of Property Management, Multifamily Executive and Rent and Retain. These publications are witness to the apartment trainer’s expertise in resident retention, apartment leasing, apartment technology and maintenance and apartment management.
