Team Spotlight: Jade Allen, Strategic Partnerships
“AptAmigo is changing the game of real estate. I worked in the residential real estate industry for about 8 years and it always felt tedious. I can confidently say that AptAmigo has made real estate fun and refreshing! Seeing the number of clients we help find a place to live— when they had no idea where to even begin— is the highest reward for me! I know the value this company gives, not only for clients but for their employees as well!”
Jade Allen, our Strategic Partnerships Specialist, has been working at AptAmigo for almost 3 years. She says, “I was previously stuck in a career that was going nowhere when I happened to find AptAmigo. I had a gut feeling that this was where I was supposed to be, and 20 minutes after I applied, Dan (our CEO) replied personally saying he’d pass along my information!”
Jade represents AptAmigo’s approach to promoting growth within the company. She started out as an Operations Coordinator and was promoted to her current position as Strategic Partnerships Specialist after 18 months. During this transition, Jade says, “it’s been a big change, but knowing that leadership had the confidence in me to make it in this newer role has helped me embrace it, and I’m really enjoying it.”
In her current position, she explains: “I’m in charge of researching buildings and establishing partnerships with them. The reason why we spend so much time acquiring new buildings is just to give our clients as many options as possible. I really enjoy the position because it’s challenging, and I’m always up for a challenge. I get to talk to new people in different markets, so each day is never the same.”
“Being with AptAmigo for 2 and a half years, I’ve learned that I am valued, resilient and capable. The roles I have worked here have shown me just how much I can accomplish. Our entire team pushes you to see the best in yourself and it really helps you succeed— not only at work, but also in your personal life as well. In past jobs, I was seen as just a number or a way for those companies to make more money, but they didn’t actually care about me or my needs. AptAmigo truly cares about the well-being and success of their people, and for that, I am eternally grateful.”
