Hi my name is Kelly and I work as an admin assistant at Trimark Properties. I work in the sales and marketing department for off-campus student housing for apartments in Gainesville, FL.
I have learnt so much since my freshman year at the University of Florida in Gainesville when I first joined Trimark Properties. I was hired as an intern and I was really excited for the opportunity which gave me a chance to be working with undergrad and grad school UF students. My role included showing Gainesville apartments to prospective renters. I met students who were attending UF Law school or the business school at UF. These students would prefer a much quieter environment and like to live near the library. Whereas the undergrad students had a totally different set of requirements. The Sorority girls preferred to live in the apartments near sorority row UF so they could just walk to their sororities. The freshmen, on the other hand, like the luxury dorm experience which makes them feel like home.
As I am a quick learner, I picked up on so many things in a very short period of time. In a short period of time, I was included in company meetings which were related to marketing and promotion of apartments in Gainesville. At this point of time, my internship was coming to an end. As luck would have it, I was offered a permanent position at Trimark. And at the same time, I also had an opportunity to join a different company. But, since I really liked what I did and I was so happy with my coworkers, I couldn't have asked for anything more at that time. I accepted the opportunity at Trimark and continued to work with the same team!
I have come a long way since then. I have learned a lot about apartments in Gainesville since I first started working here. I am close to becoming the Gainesville apartments subject matter expert. I can now give expert advice to students about which Gainesville apartment to pick based on their budget and preferences. I have also spent a lot of time seeing how roommate matching works, which is a really cool service offered by Trimark Properties. Attending college as a freshman can be stressful, we make sure that the students have a great time with the roommates we match them with!
