Who is ELS?

Equity LifeStyle Properties (NYSE: ELS) is the leading operator of Manufactured Home Communities, RV Resorts and Campgrounds in North America. Our beautiful properties are located in the most desirable regions of the country and we offer a variety of homes and camping options to meet a wide range of customers' needs. ELS has a strong national presence with more than 400 communities and resorts in 32 states and British Columbia and a team of more than 4000 employees.

An established yet entrepreneurial business, we have visionary goals and look for people who align with this vision and have a hunger to succeed. In return, we are committed to cultivating a culture that is challenging, engaging and rewarding. We are in search of the absolute best talent in the market for our roles – proven self-starters, standout colleagues and creative thinkers - as these individuals will help to craft and lead our future.

What are we looking for?

ELS is looking for an energetic and passionate team member to help our clients find their dream home. In this dynamic role, sales associates get to show off our charming Lake Worth, FL community. Take advantage of the renovated fitness center, two mini soccer fields, basketball courts, playground, swimming pools, and clubhouse.

Why is this an amazing job for you?

This is not a 9-5, sit-behind-a-desk job. Instead, you will develop and execute upon creative marketing plans designed to drive business to our property. Our sales team is highly reciprocal and everyone works together towards a common goal. Fun fact: you will showcase homes and our community to prospective buyers by showing them around in a golf cart.

What you will do as a sales person:

  • You will show a daily average of four homes by highlighting the features and benefits of the homes and community. Approximately 85% of your time will be spent showing homes.
  • You’ll spend some time on the phone conducting preliminary sales calls with potential buyers.
  • Handling of the sales contracts. This may include calculation of sales tax and monthly payment plans as well as running credit checks.
  • You'll be meeting with residents and buyers in order to list and sell homes, keeping a database of available homes for sale, and sending “Thank You” notes to all potential customers.
  • You will also be collaborating with the resort manager, regional sales manager and/or regional manager to develop the community sales & marketing plans.
  • Develop strong resident relations with ongoing communications and an all-encompassing attitude of courteous, respect, and customer service.
  • Accomplish required administrative tasks accurately, efficiently, and in a timely manner, while handling priorities.
  • You will order and lead timely completion of new home set-ups with contractors, regional manager, or regional vice president of sales if applicable.
  • What exceptional qualities can you bring to the position?
  • You have robust customer service and sales skills with a history of success.
  • Communication is your thing-you have the gift of gab and you are able to communicate effectively with potential customers, sales leadership and the operations team.
  • You have proven skills in PR and Marketing so you can get the word out.
  • Your math skills are strong and you have the ability to calculate figures and amounts such as discounts, interest and, of course, commissions.
  • You are detail oriented and notice the little things.
  • We hire great teammates who enjoy collaborating and jumping in to get the job done.
  • You have a valid driver's license and a clean driving record. This is required.

In return for your excellent skills and abilities, you may be eligible for our benefits package including: salary, bonus program, health insurance, 401(k), STD/LTD, Life Insurance/AD&D, and paid holidays and vacations.
