As tenants are moving out and new neighbors are moving in this spring, we thought it would be a great time for the Southfield Common tenants to meet the leasing agent who makes this process possible. You’ve probably seen her around showing new apartments and delivering your packages. Meet Erica Jean Stockton!
Erica started her career with Corcoran as a lifeguard during the summers at the age of 16.
“One summer it was very rainy and I ended up spending most of my time helping out in the office and I loved the energy of it! The office staff was so energetic and excited; it made you want to be a part of their team. I began working there full time in April 2001. Since then, I have worked at well over 20 Corcoran Communities.”
How long have you been working at The Commons
Since inception, January 2012.
Best thing a resident or coworker has ever brought into the office (snacks, stories, etc)!
That’s a toss up! Chocolate covered strawberries or Ginger Betty’s cookies.
Monsters, Inc. Don’t judge me.
Favorite Band / Musician
Depends on my mood really. I love all kinds of music (as long as it has lyrics).
Favorite thing to do when not at work?
Hang out with my dog.
Favorite Resident Story?
I have worked at many different properties for Corcoran, but my most rewarding experience came from one our properties that offer a priority for people who are displaced due to domestic violence. I worked with one woman in particular who was in the hospital due to an altercation with her ex-boyfriend and I had to visit her in the hospital in order to process her application. It was a great day for me when she was released and had a safe home waiting for her.
