  • Dominique-Final

    Dominique Danielle

    Leasing & Marketing Manager

    Dominique Danielle is a property management specialist who brings finesse to UIP Property Management’s sales and marketing efforts. With a BA in finance and a Bahamian background, Dominique combines business savvy with all the warmth the Bahamas (the island of hospitality) is known for.

    Dominique’s love for real estate began at the age of 16 when she worked in custom new home sales to pay for school. During her first year in the business, Dominique sold homes to Washington Redskins players. While working for the builder, Dominique fell in love with the construction aspect of the business and studied to become a general contractor and an investor’s agent. Dominique was then introduced to a local real estate investment group, for whom she went on to renovate and sell more than 70 homes.

    Shortly thereafter, Dominique was recruited by a REIT manager to help reposition and lease up a local apartment community, where she was drawn to the idea of renovation of properties on a much larger scale. It was there that Dominque found her passion for leasing and marketing. Having managed lease ups for communities ranging in size from 38 to 2100 units, Dominique has developed a unique skill set for generating leads and closing.

    Joining the UIP Family means Dominique gets to remain local, which means she gets to spend time with her family without sacrificing her love for both construction and leasing! It also means she is in the field everyday working hard to attract and retain the wonderful residents we serve.
