Property Manager (Current Employee) –  USAAugust 9, 2013
There is no such thing as a typical day as a manager of an apartment complex. Each day is fast-paced to frenetic at times, juggling deadlines, applicants, residents and their needs, maintenance issues and staff issues.

I have enjoyed having each day, each hour or minute being different and challenging. I have enjoyed utilizing my abilities as a self-starter to manage the day-to-day operations without direct supervision. I have put together a great team that serves the residents, the historic building in which they reside and the Company with excellence; earning A+ ratings with the City and State each year for the past 5 years.

The hardest parts of the job are being on call 24/7 with no back up and being with residents each day, getting to know them and often times knowing the reason why rent is behind. Many times I have to evict someone knowing that some are good people in difficult situations. Wishing I could be compassionate, yet knowing my job requires that an eviction take place.
