Meet the Metropolis at Innsbrook Team | Maddie
Get to know our team! Over the next few weeks, we'll be introducing you to each of our team members and helping you get to know the faces of Metropolis at Innsbrook! This week, please meet Maddie O'Reilly, Leasing Specialist at Metropolis!
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Culpeper, VA, about 2 hours from Richmond. My family had a huge yard with woods and cows surrounding our property on 3 of 4 sides. I grew up playing outside all of the time, and love nature and animals because of it!
How did you get into property management and what is your favorite part about working at Metropolis?
I actually just graduated from Virginia Tech in May of 2022, so Metropolis is my first job post-grad! Both my mother and aunt are in property management, so it has always been something I have been interested in, and I am glad I got the opportunity to jump right in. So far, I am loving Metropolis because I am learning a ton about the components of property management, all the pieces that fit into lease-ups, and am enjoying having coworkers I get along with really well!
What do you love most about Innsbrook?
I really enjoy how close it is to Short Pump and all of the stores over there. It’s such a convenient location for work and play being as close as it is to 64. I also am really grateful for the sense of community Innsbrook provides. The businesses and people are all very close knit, so it’s hard to feel left out!
Where is your favorite place to go in the neighborhood (restaurant, shopping, etc.)?
Wong’s Tacos! They have such a diverse menu, and all of the tacos are so yummy with such good prices! I love ordering from there for lunch during the workday or stopping by during happy hour, definitely a favorite of mine!
Which Metropolis amenity are you most looking forward to and why?
I am looking forward to the golf simulator! I was on my high school golf team and my dad has a golf simulator in our shed at home, so this is a really fun job perk for me. I think it’s a unique experience that you’re not going to find at any other apartment complex, and I am excited to see our residents put it to good use!
Tell us a surprising or a fun fact about yourself.
For my first interview for this job at Metropolis, I actually showed up a day early! I was ready to give the interview my all, and woke up extra early to prepare, but turns out I had read the email wrong, and the interview was on Friday, not Thursday! Good thing Melanie was understanding, and I think it added a more personal and relaxed feeling to the interview the following day.
