Ellen started as an Assistant at Beyond Property Management on March 24, 2021 and is now a Leasing Assistant.

Her responsibilities include processing rental applications, answering inquiry calls, and guiding potential clients and applicants. Ellen was overjoyed when the applicants were approved because having a home implies comfort and security to her.
