Shane Snoots earned the title “Leasing Agent of the Year” in 2014 & 2015 after renting more than 200 residential properties for his company, The Maryland and Delaware Group of Long & Foster. Today, less than a year later, Mr. Snoots has become Leasing Director for the entire Eastern Shore region of Long & Foster.
Just 24 years old and a relative newcomer to the leasing industry, Mr. Snoots says he works 14 hours a day and loves providing renters and landlords with personal service that goes above and beyond what they expect. In serving landlords, his goal is to provide peace of mind by carefully screening for tenants who will take care of the property and pay on time. “Our screening is very heavy, starting with a $40 application fee,” he says. “And next we look at credit, background, proof of income, landlord verification, and references. And then we make a judgement decision, often after interviewing the potential tenant about any questions which may have arisen.”
Renters, meanwhile, appreciate the professional attention they receive before and after they move in. Mr. Snoots and his teammates swiftly handle maintenance needs and periodically visit each property to ensure that all is well. Snoots also offers tenants the opportunity to participate in a first-time-buyer’s program which helps renters advance their credit while establishing a relationship with a local lender in advance of purchasing a first home.
Working hard to help others is nothing new to Mr. Snoots, who previously managed a large medical practice in Frederick, Md., where a typical work week would put him in contact with multiple insurance companies and scores of patients. He prefers working in the property-management field, however, because, as he says, “You’re working with individual clients, and you’re helping them obtain something they really want––a home!”
Mr. Snoots is also very happy to be living in the Salisbury area, which, he says, has a “small-town feel” rather than the big-city atmosphere that has taken over his home town of Frederick. He also enjoys giving back to his new community. He presently serves on the “First Saturday” board, which produces monthly entertainment events in downtown Salisbury.
If you are a landlord or a renter looking for personal and efficient service from a team of professionals who go “above and beyond” for their clients, phone Shane Snoots today at 410-546-3211.
