So, Do You Need Help Getting Your Atlanta Penthouse Rented?

Museum Tower

Here is the “To-Do List” that my Assistant Dana and I follow for our clients when we need to market a luxury penthouse for rent.

It looks exactly like my marketing checklist for the sale of a property, only I add some personal teeth to the tenant selection process.

We modify and customize our list to suit every client, but this is pretty much what we do every time we list a property.

38 items – turn me and my team on and we will get it done for you! Dana, my Assistant is a hyper-detail oriented master of the internet, so she gets the major media placements done.

I’m just the hustler.
