A Strong Community Starts with Its Leaders: Meet Prospect Hall Community Manager Stacey Liberto

At Prospect Hall Apartments in Frederick, MD, Stacey Liberto manages all of the day-to-day dealings with residents, leasing applications, security deposits, rent collection, occupancy and vacancy rates, budgets, and more. As the property’s community manager, she is also responsible for the supervision of all property maintenance and service manager teams at the apartment complex.

Stacey joined Rachuba in October 2012 as a part-time leasing consultant after being referred by another Rachuba employee, and in 2016, she was promoted to community manager. Before her promotion, she earned her Certified Apartment Leasing Professional (CALP) credential in 2013 from the National Apartment Association and her Accredited Residential Manager (ARM) credential in 2015 from the Institute of Real Estate Management.

Even though she didn’t start at Rachuba with prior property management training, she came with a good attitude and was willing to learn and grow. She encourages other individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in property management to do the same. “If you want to be in this industry, I advise finding a company that aligns with your personal values and one that is willing to invest in educating their employees,” shares Stacey. “You need to be open to education to earn industry specific certifications.”

Stacey was drawn to Rachuba because it’s a third generation, family-owned business with a rich history. “When you work for or live in a Rachuba community, you are part of the family,” says Stacey. “I love having the opportunity to work alongside my colleagues—they motivate and inspire me to be better every day. Together, we strive to create a great experience for our community members.”

Outside of work, Stacey enjoys spending time with her husband, three adult children and their significant others, and her dog. She loves family beach vacations, creative projects, and working with her husband in real estate to help clients find their dream homes.

A fun fact about Stacey is that for the past five years she has chosen one word to live by as a New Year’s resolution. This year, her one word is EXCELLENCE. “Excellence is not being the best, it’s about doing your best,” states Stacey. “This will be how I approach the new year both personally and professionally.”
