As a Community Interactions Specialist at Ikos, you'll be responsible for maintaining our flex-leasing process by connecting landlords with renters and building relationships within the local market. On a daily basis, you will travel around the Boston area and collaborate with a team (both remote and in-person) to facilitate showings and provides unique information and insights about specific properties. You will use this information to help renters find the best property that works for them while informing landlords about local market data and strategies to get their units filled.
Ikos is delivering a scalable leasing service for residential landlords that improves their occupancy rates and provides real-time market data for rental, rehab and investment decisions.
The residential renting process is currently a mess for both renters and landlords. We're here to change that by simplifying how landlords (specifically small/medium landlords) manage their investment properties, while better serving the renters who call those investments, home.
