Leasing Consultant job title

A great job title typically includes a general term, level of experience and any special requirements. The general term will optimize your job title to show up in a general search for jobs of the same nature. The level of experience will help you attract the most qualified applicants by outlining the amount of responsibility and prior knowledge required. And if your position is specialized, consider including the specialization in the job title as well. But avoid using internal titles, abbreviations or acronyms to make sure people understand what your job posting is before clicking.

Leasing Consultant job summary

A great job description starts with a compelling summary of the position and its role within your company. Your summary should provide an overview of your company and expectations for the position. Outline the types of activities and responsibilities required for the job so job seekers can determine if they are qualified, or if the job is a good fit.

Example of a Leasing Consultant job summary

We pride yourself on providing our tenants with best-in-class service through impeccable property management and responsive support. We are currently in need of an experienced and ambitious Leasing Consultant. The ideal candidate will have a background in sales (preferably in the real estate sector) and will be motivated by the opportunity to work for salary plus commission. We offer a generous bonus structure and a luxurious work environment. Our employees are helpful and courteous, and we cultivate those same qualities in new hires. Some weekend work is required.

Leasing Consultant responsibilities and duties

The responsibilities and duties section is the most important part of the job description. Here you should outline the functions this position will perform on a regular basis, how the job functions within the organization and who the job reports to.

Examples of Leasing Consultant responsibilities

Leasing Consultant qualifications and skills

Next, outline the required and preferred skills for your position. This may include education, previous job experience, certifications and technical skills. You may also include soft skills and personality traits that you envision for a successful hire. While it may be tempting to include a long list of skills and requirements, including too many could dissuade qualified candidates from applying. Keep your list of qualifications concise, but provide enough detail with relevant keywords and terms.

Examples of Leasing Consultant skills

    3+ years’ experience in leasing, property management, sales or real estate highly desired
