The Fine ART of Taking a Service Request

January 11, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST

Perhaps the single most important factor in resident retention is the on-site professional’s response to a resident’s request for “service”. Most often, that request is one for maintenance . . . maintenance in the resident’s apartment home. The attitude of the staff in handling a service request, the response time, and the manner in which the work is done will significantly impact the resident’ s decision to refer their friends to the community, renew their lease, and even pay their rent promptly.

Whether the request comes through your online resident portal or in person from a visit to the office, this is a moment of truth! Will the resident experience the excellent service that was promised on your website and in the initial leasing presentation?


Do it right and you make a customer for life…or at least for a few years.

  • The service request “opportunity”
  • Making each service request a powerful retention event.
  • FEP Service…Memorable Service
  • Accepting a service request…in person, on the phone, and online.
  • Follow up on a maintenance request.
  • The Service Promise

Your ongoing maintenance program is the foundation of your resident service and retention efforts. Start here and all other services and activities will ring true!
