  • 'Property manager' encompasses many job titles

    Sometimes I wish I had a different job title. When someone outside of this business asks me what I do for a living, I silently cringe. Not many people understand what I do at work day in and day out.

  • Why do property management firms exist?

    Many commercial property management firms today measure their success by their ability to achieve goals such as making larger transactions, increasing the amount of square feet they manage or obtaining more upscale properties. Unfortunately, in their quest to attain these transaction and asset-driven rewards, these firms often lose sight of the real reasons they exist. This lack of purpose results in fuzzy business objectives that ultimately fail to serve the best interests of a firm's clients - or even the firm itself.
