Jenine Atencio Caucutt has been awarded Leasing Agent of the Year 2016 by the San Francisco Apartment Association. Now we’ve asked her to share her success story with us.
“I’m one of those people who believe all things are connected. If I stay true to myself, show heart, try not to judge, stay focused on my goals and share my gifts then things always work out for the best!”
Tell us a bit about yourself. When did you join AMSI and what do you specialise in?
I grew up in Denver, Colorado and have lived in San Francisco since 2004. I’ve worked with AMSI since then with the exception of a 2-year period from 2013-2015 to move to Nashville. I focus on leasing and corporate housing sales.
What do you enjoy the most about your job and working with AMSI?
AMSI is such a great place to be and the broker Robb Fleischer is the best! There are so many great people here. It’s easy to get inspired by each of my team member’s gifts. The company model enables each agent to excel in a variety of capacities. If you like to work with property owners, real estate sales and leasing are good for you. If you excel in a more structured sales environment then corporate housing sales is good for you. Throughout the years with AMSI I discovered that my skills and connections align with both worlds so I like to engage in both.
Why do you believe Robb is “the best”? How did Robb contribute to your success journey?
Robb is consistent in teaching his team that all challenges are really an opportunity. He is supportive in our efforts as agents and he also inspires us by helping us to see how we can be creative in each deal. Robb has taught me that real estate is really a creative endeavor. On one occasion, Robb demonstrated to me that sometimes we have elegant transactions and sometimes we have clunky transactions, almost like a dance. That conversation totally re-framed how I look at real estate!
What is your key to success?
Consistency and follow through are important to me. I also try to push myself to learn new strategies, stay current with industry trends and technology as much as I can.
What is your motto in life?
I’m one of those people who believe all things are connected. If I stay true to myself, show heart, try not to judge, stay focused on my goals and share my gifts then things always work out for the best!
How did it feel to take the Leasing Agent of the Year 2016 Trophy home?
It felt great!
Clients love working with you. What do you believe makes you so special and unique?
I bring heart and integrity to my work. I make it a priority to really hear my client’s objectives and deliver accurate and up-to-date information on current market conditions so we can determine the best strategy to achieve their goal quickly.
You lived in Nashville for a while during your 2-year break with AMSI. What pulled you back to San Francisco?
I love both cities! At the end of the day San Francisco is hard for any city to measure up to. It’s visually stunning, culturally rich and there are so many opportunities here.
Which neighbourhood in San Francisco defines you the most and what do you like about it the most?
That’s tough. One of the things I love most about working in real estate in San Francisco is that I have the opportunity to get to know and enjoy all of the unique neighborhoods in the city. Each of them has something special, which is the beauty of San Francisco.
