Position Summary

At NewMark Merrill Companies our Property Managers have the role of being the head of operations for the centers they oversee. This includes oversight of the physical parts of the center, but just as importantly, you are responsible for getting to know the tenants, identifying what makes the successful tenants successful, and what we can do to assist the less successful. We want you to know the community leaders, engage with our shoppers, and work with marketing, technology, accounting and leasing to make sure we always deliver an environment that we are proud of.

Our Property Managers spend no time on rent collection, and less time on accounting, but much more time in understanding what makes our neighborhoods work and helping to ensure our centers hold a special place in our customers’ hearts.
