Manage a diverse team.
High-performance buildings are successful because of their high-performance teams. And the key to success for a property manager is building, nurturing and mentoring a diverse team of property professionals from the janitorial and maintenance staff to the concierge and security personnel to the third-party service providers. Property managers also play a critical role as the liaison between owners, investors, brokers, tenants and prospective tenants. Successful property managers have strong people skills, are entrepreneurial, resourceful problem-solvers and like that no two days are the same.
