After refining our self-service leasing model in Austin, Texas, and expanding throughout Texas, we’re excited to share that we have expanded our full-service leasing solution to markets in Atlanta, Georgia and Phoenix, Arizona. 

“There are a lot of moving pieces to launch in a new area and we are able to get faster each time we enter a new market,” shared Roger Chavez, Support Operations Manager at Sunroom. “This is exciting for us because we are committed to expanding into markets that best align with the needs of our partners so we can continue to support their growth.”
