PR Log - May 02, 2012 - Promesa, a premier apartment community, located at 9415 McNeil Drive in Austin, TX, is not only stunning with its rambling ranch styling; it is Green and certified by the Austin Energy Green Building program. Settled in a woodland, Promesa is bordered by Concordia University; it is a short distance from Tom Hughes Park, and it is surrounded by shopping, restaurants, medical facilities, and commerce from the best Austin has to offer.
Promesa has 289 units with six spacious floor plans featuring wood floors, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, hill country views, front-load washer and dryer, and nickel hardware, plus many optional features. Common areas include a pet park, water sports, cardio studio, media room, lounges and a roomy tech center.
The new web site offers visitors a virtual visit to Promesa where they can linger over colorful floor plans with two or three dimensional views, and check exact pricing and availability thanks to a Spherexx.com software integration with Yardi accounting systems. Web site visitors can complete their full application online and the information populates directly into the community’s management software for ease of processing.
PromesaLiving.com shows off the new community’s classic interior design options, photos, property map, neighborhood attractions and directions, and Internet coupon. Online apartment shoppers can request an appointment in moments—no need to place a phone call. The web site also has a mobile version that automatically populates when accessed by a smart phone.
Residents also have access to great services at PromesaLiving.com. They can pay rent, review their account, request maintenance service, change their address, write a review, reference Q&As, refer a friend, and view a calendar of events.
Promesa also incorporates some sophisticated software to streamline and simplify the leasing experience for both the shopper and the management team. ILoveLeasing.com brings prospect information from multiple web advertisements into one location for quick, impressively packaged information sharing plus an advertising breakdown. The program intuitively collects demographic data and calculates costs per lead, per lease and it makes budget alteration recommendations. Its companion software, SweetSpotDashboard.com, lets agents reference ILoveLeasing.com and other applications on Apple iPad or tablet. It also provides a customer interface where residents or prospects can interact on mobile devices for leasing information, pre-qualifying formulas, complete an application or access resident forms. Thus far, http://www.PromesaLiving.com has generated 67% of all leads for the new community.
