STEP 1

Register Lighthouse as your referral

When you first make contact with a property, let them know Lighthouse referred you. They will create your profile in their system and link Lighthouse as your referral source. This is called your “guest card” and it typically has your name, contact info, what you’re looking for, and referral source. Here’s a script for you to use when you email or speak with them for the first time: “Hi, I found your property on my apartment locator’s site called Lighthouse. I’m interested in a 1 bedroom and would like to move in 4 weeks from now. Do you have anything available and what is the best priced unit?”
