A Property Manager looks after residential and commercial properties on behalf of the owners. You’ll be working with both tenants and landlords and you’ll be kept busy with a range of daily tasks. A Property Manager may spend their day listing properties for rent, organising inspections or interviewing potential new tenants. You might have to prepare contracts and collect rent or you may have to organise repairs or maintenance.
Property Managers generally have multiple properties on their books so you’ll need excellent organisational skills. You’ll often be called on to sort out property issues so it’s important you’re good at problem solving. You’ll need to be a good negotiator and be great at dealing with a wide range of people. Administrative tasks will be a big part of your job so you need to be up to date with office systems and technology.
