Leasing 101/ Test your knowledge part 1

If you are looking for a good topic for a sales meeting, try this one out.  Often with sales training, people will nod along saying they understand everything being presented.  This is the first of a 3 part test I created.  I would have my group first take the test and I would review the answers.  It would be clear what areas I would need to address in training for my group and also by individual.  Each question if explored properly can be the topic of a quick sales training.

I will post the other 2 parts of this exam over the next few weeks.  If you would like the answers, email me and I can send you a copy of the test with the answers included.  smurr@offsiteequipment.com
