Property Management: 9 Essential Qualities
Property management is often in demand when the brokerage side of business is slow. However, success in this specialty doesn’t come easy. Here are the skills you need, experts say.
Commitment to customer service. You need to respect your tenants and empathize with their concerns.
Sense of balance. Managers serve the sometimes conflicting goals of the owner and the tenant. Being able to keep the two in balance makes for a great manager.
Staying cool under fire. Whether they’re dealing with broken water pipes or owners’ budget questions, managers are always on call.
Ability to sweat the small stuff. Accounting for every dollar and knowing every inch of a property are part of the job.
Willingness to listen. Serving tenant and owner goals can’t happen unless you learn what all of the stakeholders really want. Talk less; listen more.
