Last week, Residential Property Manager asked PMs what part of their profession brings them the most joy. Appreciation for your hard work makes everything that little bit brighter…
Knowing that you've genuinely been of service - such as when a client thanks us wholeheartedly and tells us that they are now sleeping better at night! That sort of feedback really makes your day! - Define Property Agents
I love it when the tenant is over the moon and the landlord is thrilled and you are congratulated for an excellent job!” - Deborah Terley
When you have gone above and beyond to help someone and they are genuinely pleased that they found you! - Lauren Richter
When you have a big problem and there seems to be no end and the expense is going through the roof...then the tenant calls you they have helped to fix the issue, magic! Happy tenant, happy owner and happy PM. - Cheryl Pearson
Just the whole dynamic of matching a great property with great tenants and hearing the joy when you ring them to advise of a successful application. The added bonus of a great Landlord completes the circle. - Amanda Pearce
When you have a client who really, really needs your help. And you're able to provide a great solution. Ie. They can't move into their new property for 8 months and you manage to find them an 8 month tenancy, with good tenants at a decent rent. I love when every now and then, things just fall into place. - Elizabeth Henley
Walking into an outgoing inspection that is actually cleaned to the same condition it was when they moved in. That honestly makes me the happiest!!! - Justin Spencer
Daniel Bligh was quick to respond the following:
I agree Justin! What about the times when it is CLEANER than the OWNER left it in!
My team- without a doubt... I know that if something goes wrong or if I am feeling overwhelmed I know I can go to them and get support and help. We have laughed and cried... They are my 2nd family.... I would not have been in this job as long as I have without a reliable, friendly team around me. - Elise Claire
A glass of wine about 5pm... - Mike Beamish
