Meet The Team: Natasha Smith

This month’s meet the team interview is with Crest Assistant Property Manager, Natasha Smith. 

Natasha answered some questions about what she’s most looking forward to about the features at Crest and what future residents could expect from their living experience.  

What are three things you’re excited about at Crest Apartments?

I’m most looking forward to the grand opening! I know that all of our new residents will enjoy all of the exciting apartment and building features. I’m also excited about celebrating our residents with thoughtful and interactive resident events. Lastly, I’m looking forward to matching future residents with the perfect apartment floor-plan for them!

What type of experience can residents expect when living at Crest?

A strong sense of community where our residents’ happiness is truly our goal. Residents will be greeted with warm smiles, even if we are wearing masks, timely responses to inquires or needs, and open communication.

What amenity do you think residents will enjoy the most?

This one is a little tough to answer because I feel like we’ve got amenities to match everyone’s desires depending on personal preferences, but I’ll say the dog park. It is located within the community, and as a pet lover myself, I understand the level of convenience and peace of mind this amenity provides. Especially for late-night walks and early mornings! You’re only steps away from your front door.

What is your favorite floor-plan at Crest so far?

I’m guilty of walking into an apartment and declaring a favorite and then walking into a different one and saying, “oooh, this one is it!”. We have so many great options, but for the sake of making a decision, I’ll say C6 Floorplan. I LOVE the connected kitchen island and the amount of natural light throughout the apartment home.

What retail option are you most exciting about at Skyland Town Center?

So many options! It’s hard to decide. I want to wait until everything is complete before making my decision.

What is your favorite Crest amenity so far?

The Fitness Center! #WorkOutQueen

 I love that some apartments feature charging stations. It’s the level of detail for me!
