The Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) has backed a new initiative which seeks to celebrate the country’s property management community.
National Property Managers Day, which is due to take place this Friday, 24 July, is designed as a day to recognise the “amazing efforts of the residential and commercial property managers across Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic”, according to a statement from the REIA.
“Property managers have been the unsung heroes of the pandemic, working at the coalface and dealing with issues around tenants and property owners who have also lost their jobs,” said Adrian Kelly, president, REIA.
“The property managers are the ones who have worked in the background to find solutions as best they can in the current environment.
“This work is continuing as the pandemic is still prolific and especially as the non-eviction period comes to an end.”
Commenting further, Mr Kelly referred to property managers as being the backbone to many estate agency businesses.
“[They are] the quiet achievers who work very hard every day in an environment where every minute of the day counts, looking after tenants just as much as property owners,” he said.
The campaign will be promoted using the hashtag #nationalpropertymanagersday and comes after new research by the Real Estate of Queensland (REIQ) found that property managers have gone to greater heights for their clients over the COVID-19 pandemic.
