Former Employee - Community Manager

I worked at Equity Residential full-time for more than 8 years


When I joined Equity Residential as a Leasing Consultant 8 years ago, I didn't quite imagine what my journey would look like. As I recently closed my career with EQR as a Community Manager, I can say... I definitely enjoyed the ride. I took full advantage of my opportunities at Equity by starting as Leasing Consultant in the DC metro area to transferring to the Boston area and eventually finding my home in Seattle as a Community Manager. What I can say is the thread that binds these areas together is the company culture. If you take to heart the different opportunities and training presented to you, you can grow and develop into a well rounded professional. From "Living the 10 ways" to recognition in how you "Be. Think. Play. Live." you can find that Equity WANTS you to succeed. Being a part of the Seattle team was particularly rewarding because that is where I had my most growth as professional. I had opportunities to participate as a leader in new hire training, become a hiring specialist in helping in conducting interviews and being an ambassador of Equity's culture through Equity Residential national initiatives on Total Well Being, Sustainability, Diversity and Inclusion and Social Responsibility.


Not a Con but a piece of advice; Take ownership in your engagement. Identify your resources and use them to have a fulfilling career. Don't wait for some to present an opportunity to you, go find... them. Find a mentor and take charge of your career.

Advice to Management

Continue to build the culture to the field teams.
