Gabby Nettles began her meteoric rise with LMC after stopping into the West & Fondren property in Houston, TX. After years of serving customers in a call center, she was seeking a more personal approach to customer interaction. So when she saw a beautiful new LMC property was looking for incredible team members, she knew it was meant to be. Gabby currently serves as Leasing Manager at LMC's newest Houston-area community, The Maddox.
In only her first two years with LMC, this leasing juggernaut has been recognized for excellence multiple times, including making the President's Club twice in a row. She also was named 2017 Leasing Superstar, and was a 3-time Top Performer in Q3 and Q4 in 2017 and Q2 in 2018. We are incredibly lucky to have hardworking, caring team members like Gabby who have a passion for their residents and their fellow employees. Let’s hear from Gabby a little bit about her experience and what she loves most about working for LMC!
What is your official title and job description?
In August 2016, I started as a Leasing Professional and within 18 months I was promoted to Leasing Manager. In my current position I work closely with our newest LP’s to motivate and teach how to close leases, market and promote the Community the LMC way.
What is your LMC story (how did you land at LMC)?
After a long drive in traffic in the Westchase district, I stopped at the corner of Westheimer and Fondren where I saw a beautiful property under construction with a sign that said “ Join a stellar team”. After sending my Leasing Superstar resume to Lucy Simon, Simmons, Simmone and Simone, finally I received an e-mail from Lucy Simone inviting me to interview. I then met the newest members of what I would later refer to as my family. The interview was nothing like I had ever experienced where I was asked questions like “What makes you happy” and “What goals are you trying to achieve”, we laughed and even got to know more about each other. I knew at that point I had LMC and they had me.
Tell us your favorite thing about working at LMC?
The LMC hugs! I feel like everyone that works for this company is a long lost cousin that has been looking for me. I have never been more excited to come to work!
What's your favorite LMC Core Value?
“We’re good people, lets be good people together” This statement is so true from the kinships between LMC representatives, even to how we treat our clients. They always say they love us because we are so “real.”
What are you most looking forward to in LMC's future?
I have so much potential to grow with LMC. I would love to move forward and continue to teach and motivate other LMC team members all the things that I have learned in my career. It makes me tickled, delighted, and happy of just the thought of my future with LMC!
LMC is a very special place to work, largely because of the special people who work here. Our company culture is infused with spirit, enthusiasm, passion, and vitality. Thank you for being an amazing example of that, Gabby!
Above all else, we are committed to quality, communication, and integrity. This applies to the communities we build and lease, and to the relationships we have with our residents and each other.
