Property Managers Biddeford ME

When someone asks about what it takes to be a "good" property manager, our minds often envision a person with skin as tough as alligator hide; someone as fair and impartial as a judge; one whose patience is unlimited; and whose wisdom knows no bounds.

When someone asks about what it takes to be a "good" property manager, our minds often envision a person with skin as tough as alligator hide; someone as fair and impartial as a judge; one whose patience is unlimited; and whose wisdom knows no bounds.

Those, however, are personal attributes. And, although they are certainly noteworthy, and they surely contribute to the overall successful picture of a "good" property manager, they don't cut to the heart of the question.

A "good" property manager must possess a large number of skills and talents, as well as being created from the fiber described above. This article looks at 26 different skills and talents -- everything from A to Z -- that should be possessed by a "good" property manager.

Using these skills regularly and developing these talents to the best of your ability is what makes the difference between a property manager and a "good" property manager. Having these skills and talents, and not using them, or using them only once in a while does not make you a "good" anything.

Customer service is often touted as the position that will be most in demand as we continue into the twentieth century. A "good" property manager is customer service personified. Each person who lives in your community, looks at living in your community, or works in your community is your customer. If you, as property manager, develop these talents and use these skills as outlined below, customer service will be second nature to you and you will indeed have become a "good" property manager.

This list, however, is not all-inclusive. There is already a second list of A to Z almost ready to print. How many others can you think of that should be included? Send your comments by email to chrissyj@earthlink.net for inclusion in the next list.

Activities - Even without a clubhouse, you can arrange activities for your residents. Coordinate volunteers to help organize events and publicize them. Be creative; encourage new ideas from residents. Check your library for books detailing unusual ideas for get-togethers. Encourage the formation of a resident social organization to keep the residents of your community active and create that "neighborhood" feeling.

Balance - It is up to you to balance your day. Allow time for resident interaction in activities and discussion. Keep an eye on expenses and remember the importance of balancing the budget. Balance the needs of your employees and residents with the needs of your employer.

Curb Appeal - "If you don't have curb appeal, you aren't open for business", as the saying goes. Make sure your community is clean, curbing and sidewalks are swept, flower beds weeded, and the entrance attractive.

Dress - Dress appropriately. If you work in the office, dress professionally in good looking clothing. If you work outside in the community, wear uniforms for easy identification ...
