The best part of my job is when I call and tell a future resident, ‘I have a home for you!’” Kelly Sweigart says. Recently promoted to Director of Sales, Kelly now leads the sales team at Garden Spot Village.
For the past five years Kelly has served as sales associate, meeting with prospective residents, hearing their stories, and helping them make the decision to move to Garden Spot Village.
Initially hired to help sell the 77 single-family homes planned at Sycamore Springs, Kelly has accomplished that and so much more. In her tenure, she has helped more than 200 families move to Garden Spot Village.
A LONG HISTORY AT GARDEN SPOT
Kelly has worked at Garden Spot Village since age 16. She recalls walking to Garden Spot after school to work in the wellness department, which she continued to do through college, filling in during holiday and summer breaks. When she graduated from Temple University in 2013, she picked up additional hours with life enrichment and at resident services. All of her roles have offered opportunities to develop deep relationships with residents and team members.
She fondly remembers jumping into the pool to even out the water volleyball teams and going on lunch trips and sightseeing tours with life enrichment.
“I value the relationships I’ve built with residents and other team members,” Kelly says. “It’s also exciting to bring new people to our community and to help build something special.”
TAPPED FOR LEADERSHIP
Kelly has been tapped for leadership in various ways over the years. She has served as assistant race director for the Garden Spot Village Marathon for five years. She also participated in the Emerging Leaders program in 2017 and she traveled to Honduras and Dominican Republic with Garden Spot Village Travel with Purpose Trips.
She’s participated in fun events as well, acting in Denouement, the premiere Lighter Side Players performance in 2013. She’s been performing since age nine, playing the flute in concert and marching bands and participating in Garden Spot High School’s Performing Arts theater program.
A VISION FOR THE FUTURE
“I really hope to add more to the Radar Screen Experience,” Kelly explains. “I think fun trips and events that have nothing to do with Sales can help us to build relationships and connect people on the Radar Screen to their future neighbors.”
“I’m also looking forward to the next phase of building at Sycamore Springs. I’m hoping we can continue our regular video updates to keep our community engaged in the project.”
Kelly lives in Mohnton with her boyfriend, Jon, and their menagerie of pets, which includes a cat, a guinea pig, a tarantula and a lizard. When she’s not busy working, Kelly practices for her piano lessons and enjoys trivia nights with friends.
