KETTLER Senior Property Manager Makes 30 Under 30 List

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 2, 2019 -- Larissa Laiti, Senior Property Manager at KETTLER, has made the 30 Under 30 List for the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM). Larissa has led two of KETTLER’s most successful and high profile lease-ups with Solaire Bethesda and Legacy West End.

 “Larissa’s work ethic and accomplishments naturally stand out and set her apart as a dedicated professional in all that she does,” said Kelsey Clark, Regional Property Manager at KETTLER. “We are thrilled that Larissa has been recognized by IREM as a thriving young professional and emerging leader in the industry.”

Larissa began her career with KETTLER on the Manager in Development track where she gained experience at various properties in several different markets. She was hired as an Assistant Property Manager and was quickly promoted to Property Manager of a Class-A lease-up in Bethesda, Maryland. She was instrumental in leading the property to reach stabilization in twelve months. She was promoted again to a flagship lease-up (Legacy West End, in Washington, D.C.) where she achieved $4.65 per square foot rents while reaching 95% leased in nine months.

In her new role as Senior Property Manager, Larissa has added an additional lease-up community to her portfolio: 672 Flats in Ballston, VA.

Larissa is part of the KETTLER Property Manager Mentor Program and serves on the KETTLER Management Advisory Council, which advises on the development and implementation of company policy, software selection and philanthropic efforts.
