Leasing Consultant of the Year at Mi-Place

Fernmoor’sMadelene Kennedy earned top honors as Leasing Consultant of the Year, for her work at Mi-Place at West Rancocas, a community of luxury apartments in Mt. Holly, N.J.

“Madelene does more than just show apartments,” noted Carol Gephart, director, Sales and Marketing, Fernmoor Homes. “She focuses on the customer experience, really getting to know prospective tenants, their lifestyle needs and what’s important to them. This allows her to match the right apartment to the right person. As a result, her conversion rate is very high. She averages 15+ leases a month.”

Mi-Place at West Rancocas is a community of luxury apartments with extensive on-site amenities, from a solar powered community clubhouse to a 24/7 fitness center, resident’s lounge, pub, billiards, and outdoor pool with barbecue area. Spacious homes feature one and two bedrooms with dens, balconies, and open floor plans.

Located just minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike and Route 295, Mi Place is an easy commute to Cherry Hill, Trenton, the Princeton Corridor and Philadelphia giving renters a “commuter’s edge.”

Due to its proximity to Fort Dix and McGuire Air Force Base, Mi-Place is popular with military renters. Madelene Kennedy has made accommodations for her military tenants who had to leave early due to deployment.

“Madelene is very in tune with tenants and the relationship doesn’t stop with the lease agreement,” said Gephart. “When one serviceman was unexpectedly deployed, she was able to present two options: pairing him with a new roommate who had been on the prospect list or moving to a smaller, more affordable apartment.”
