Hi There! We're Barbara & Lauren and we created a membership for YOU... the high-achieving [but ridiculously busy] MULTIFAMILY PROFESSIONAL!
We're real-life BFFs that decided to go into business together in 2010.
Sprout was the dream service I wanted when I was a manager. You’ll probably understand this...I wanted to do it all and still look good in the process! But no matter how hard I tried to keep up, I was exhausted...and felt defeated at the end of every day. How was one person supposed to do it all without losing their sanity? -A note from Barbara
When I partnered with Barbara I wanted to incorporate my design background to create something that was really beautiful for on-site teams, but also easy to use. That’s why we were so excited to bring The Seedling Membership to life in 2012. -A note from Lauren
Since then, thousands of on-site managers have fallen in love with The Seedling Membership. It allows them to have it all, without doing it all themselves.
We are excited that you are here! :)
xoxo, Barbara & Lauren - Your Marketing Sidekicks

25+ STOCK PHOTOS - REPRESENTING APARTMENT LIFE
Tired of the cheesy, clearly-not-in-an-apartment stock photo search? Have zero time to hunt down the right, license-free image to use on social media and your website? Do you cringe every time you have to pay a ridiculous fee to buy a high-resolution photo? Well then...stop it. There is an easier way.
Each month Seedling Membership provides you with a minimum of 25 beautiful, high-res images to use in your social media marketing, on your website, or even in your printed collateral. The best part is that as long as you are a Sprout Member, they are licensed to your community. Bam! That was easy.
Access many more stock photos on the Sprout Member Site.

Post them on your community board, in your elevators, leasing office door & other common areas. Ad-agency quality for every touchpoint.
