What does an Assistant Property Manager do?
Property managers are responsible for the overall financial and operational management of residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Property managers aim to minimize costs while keeping tenants satisfied. They are tasked with addressing tenant concerns, collecting rent, dealing with maintenance, and managing the budget.
Property managers need to have a Bachelor's degree. Some states require property managers to have some type of professional designation or certification. While not all states do, most employers prefer property managers have a Certified Property Manager (CPM), Real Property Administrator (RPA), or Registered in Apartment Management (RAM) designation. Most of these designations have education, experience, and exam requirements. The best property managers are customer service oriented, have great interpersonal skills, and are extremely organized.
