Hats Hats, Many Hats! A property manager wears many professional hats in the course of one day. From listing and marketing a new home for rent, responding to and having serviced AC units that are down, supervising a painting contractor, conducting move-in and move-out inspections, organizer, mediator, sounding board, administrator, and budget expert….the list goes on……WHEW! They are busy more than most realize!
Having a “team” behind you that keeps everything running as smoothly as possible is key! Building a company around the great service you provide and the integrity of your business is also key.
The best property managers must be of solid character and personality, and possess traits of honesty, sincerity and integrity. Other important assets to have are flexibility and discipline. It takes planning, follow through and a proactive approach to successfully accomplish the job. Juggling dozens of responsibilities is no easy task but the most adept managers can make it seem rather easy. If one were to create a super manager, taking all the best pieces from all the different managers out there, it would include bits of organization, leadership, dedication and keeping a good sense of humor!
