The internship must be one of the best opportunities I have had. At Niko LA Leasing, Niko guides you on a path of growth throughout the internship. You grow not only as an individual but as well as a professional. As a professional, I feel confident that I can communicate effectively, I have efficient time management, and I can adapt to any situation that is presented to me. As an individual, I have a much clearer picture of where I want to be in the next 5 to 10 years. Niko sheds light on the real estate industry today and provides knowledge through his experiences working both in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur today. The most important concept that you will learn with Niko is that there is no limitation to development and growth, whether it be your career or as an individual.
The experience I have gained through the internship with Niko LA Leasing has exceeded my expectations. As interns, we have learned how to transition from the classroom to the workforce.

Niko really values preparing his interns for the real world and making sure we make the most of this opportunity.
Real Estate Intern
My experience at Niko LA Leasing allowed me to obtain hands-on experience in real estate, marketing, and entrepreneurship. Through my daily responsibilities, I was able to gain a solid understanding of what it means to run a small business, from attending broker caravans throughout Los Feliz and maintaining an active presence with the client communities, to managing listings on the Multiple Listing Service and producing visual content using Matterport 3D cameras and DJI drones. Most importantly, though, working in a small group yielded a more personalized experience where I could learn more about real estate processes by asking questions. I can attest that Niko and Brandon truly care about their interns and do their best to make themselves as approachable as possible!
To say that this internship experience was phenomenal for me would be an understatement. Through my experience working with Niko LA Leasing, I created, managed, and scheduled content under multiple social media accounts on a daily basis, while also sending out email campaigns to realtors and potential prospects who may be interested in our properties. This internship was unique from a typical experience as our team was given the creative freedom to make important decisions, allowing us to work in an unrestricted and creative environment.
I’ve also had the opportunity to visit Niko’s represented properties as a team, where we were able to conduct Matterport 3D scannings of the apartment units and create effective social media content for clients.
