Fast growing company with a laid back but competitive atmosphere
Property Administrator (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 15, 2013
I personally execute property negotiations, acquisitions, title review, document preparation, closing, property research, and property inventory, maintain relationships with government agencies, file evictions, create and distribute all legal correspondence for 5 major counties.
I have learned much through my experience at this company; I came in with admin experience but had no background in real estate/property management. Most of my responsibilities now I picked up on through on the job training. I personally believe that one of the best ways an employee can learn is being handed a big project and being told to "figure it out". There tends to be more retention as a result!
Management is very laid back and there is really no "micro managing" that occurs - there is a very stringent interview and screening process when bringing in new teammates, and, as a result, management trusts that the employees are capable of handling their tasks and daily responsibilities. However, they are always here to help if you need it.
The hardest part of the job is the long hours that need to be vested into it; our department in particular is somewhat short staffed but the daily responsibilites still need to be done. I tend to find myself on my email at 2 o'clock in the morning on a regular basis!
Ultimately, I love this job and the experience I have gained from it. They have treated me extremely well and I truly believe in this Avestas mission and values.
