As a Property Manager, your role will be a blend of:
Leadership: Property Managers take pride in representing the Company in a professional and positive manner. You’ll lead by example and partner with your Maintenance Supervisor to train, develop, manage, and ensure your teams have the resources they need to thrive. Property Managers have a passion to coach and develop the team to see them grow.
Performance Management: Property Managers committed to success and you have a 'do what It takes' attitude. Property Managers know just what it takes to ensure your Community achieves the income expectations in your operating budget. No matter if you’re pushing towards leasing performance goals, recommending major capital projects, setting a marketing strategy, or simply tracking your office supply budget, you are in the details at your Community. You are fluent in market dynamics, variance reports, the Company’s policies and procedures, and enjoy setting the strategy for your Community.
Customer Experience: Property Managers do the little things, as well as the big things, that show people you care. Creating memorable experiences that our customers will tell others about excites you. Property Managers understand that loyalty is earned by doing the unexpected and you’re willing to ensure you and your team deliver on our goal of delivering outstanding customer experiences no matter what the circumstance.
