Southern Residential Leasing, specializing in long-term rentals along the Gulf Coast of Florida and Alabama, recently announced that property managers Sammie Barberi, Teresa Lee, and Angie Williams have each passed their state real estate exams.
In order to heighten their overall level of industry expertise, Southern earlier encouraged all employees to attain their corresponding Florida or Alabama real estate licenses to broaden their foothold in the field.
Subsequent to the threesome’s achievement, 80 percent of Southern Residential Leasing’s team is now officially equipped to sell real estate and better able to represent the company’s growing property portfolios in the greater Mobile, Pensacola and Destin areas.
“We want the best and brightest staff around to represent Southern, and these three women have proven time and again that they are just that,” COO Marie Babin said. “We could not be more proud of them.”
Barberi and Williams, who passed Florida’s state exam, will continue overseeing condos and homes for rent in Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Navarre, Gulf Breeze, Pensacola, Perdido Key, and the surrounding area; while Lee, assistant residential leasing manager in Fairhope, received her Alabama license and will direct rentals in Mobile, Spanish Fort, Daphne, Fairhope, Gulf Shores, and Orange Beach.
Southern Rentals and Real Estate offers vacation rentals, residential leasing, real estate and property management services in Northwest Florida and coastal Alabama.
The company comes under the umbrella of the Southern constellation of companies, comprised of Southern Vacation Rentals, Southern Residential Leasing, Southern Real Estate Sales, Southern Real Estate and RE/MAX Southern.
Collectively, its branches handle approximately 1,000 vacation rentals, 1,100 long-term rentals, and 40 associations on the Gulf Coast.
