Regional Vice President of Leasing & Marketing
Vanessa Young joined the Landmark Team as a Leasing Ambassador at The Retreat Columbia in 2009. She loved living at The Retreat during her time as a student at The University of South Carolina, but loved working there even more, and quickly realized that student housing was the career path for her! Upon graduation, where she received a degree in Political Science with a minor in Hotel, Restaurant, Tourism Management, Vanessa accepted the role of Leasing and Marketing Manager. Even though she fell in love with The Retreat Columbia, and being in the midst of her fellow Gamecock nation, she decided to make the move to Corvallis, Oregon in 2014 to take on the role of Sales and Marketing Manager at The Retreat at Corvallis. After rounding out a full year in Corvallis, she was given the opportunity to take on her dream role as a traveling Leasing and Marketing Specialist for Landmark Properties in 2015. She was later promoted to the Regional Leasing and Marketing Manager position in the Fall of 2016 and most recently was promoted to a Regional Vice President of Leasing and Marketing in October of 2018. Vanessa brings nearly 12 years’ experience exclusively with Landmark. As a Regional Vice President of Leasing and Marketing, she will be responsible for ensuring her portfolio is optimally leased by leading an existing best-in-class group of individuals.
Vanessa and her husband Kevin now reside in Athens, GA with their son, Krew, and daughter, Palmer. Their two sweet dog children, Harlow the GSP and Birdie the Boykin Spaniel. In her spare time, she loves traveling with her family, watching SEC football, and trips to the coast.
