The Winter 2023 RedPeak Impact Award Winner is:

The Winter 2023 RedPeak Impact Award Winner, Kelley Randazzo

Kelley Randazzo, Leasing Professional, Central Leasing

From her nomination:

“Kelley Randazzo joined the company as a leasing professional over 4.5 years ago and has worked at a variety of RedPeak communities. This spring, she was selected as part of a team to launch an innovative, centralized approach to leasing in which salespeople worked independently outside the traditional leasing office format utilizing a variety of leasing tools, including a new, self-guide option. This initiative involved major change on many fronts, including learning and understanding a myriad of product types, floorplans and availability options, as well as different expectations regarding sales process and many team members initially struggled to adapt. Not Kelley. 

From April through September 2022, (less than 6 months) Kelley secured 149 leases! Keep in mind this does not include her leasing contributions for the remaining 6 months. By embracing technology and new methods, Kelley was able to improve efficiency, velocity (often by leasing two apartments at once) and overall revenue proving the concept could work to everyone’s benefit.”

Congratulations Kelley! You are absolutely taking RedPeak FORWARD!
