Regional property managers are responsible for all aspects of property management within their assigned regions. This typically involves managing several properties or communities of properties with disparate needs, residents, maintenance levels, and issues. These managers work with property staff to maintain residential units, which involves solving resident issues efficiently while ensuring proper maintenance occurs on buildings and facilities to prevent future issues. Regional property managers work with local residential staff to develop maintenance plans, develop safety standards, and update and maintain proper records. These regional managers are ultimately responsible for solving residential disputes, ensuring property meets all regulatory standards, and making sure communities occupied and profitable.
Regional property managers usually work a standard full-time schedule with the opportunity for overtime when necessary. They spend a majority of their time in office environments, analyzing documents and working with their staff to assess issues and initiate policies. They may be required to frequently travel among the residential communities for which they are responsible, meeting with residents, staff, and regulatory officers to address issues and inspect facilities.
Regional property managers are typically required to hold a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field or have equivalent experience in their field. In most cases, these managers must have experience managing multiple properties. They may be required to hold a CPM (Certified Property Manager) certification. They may also need experience or knowledge of property-specific rules and regulations, such as Section 8 housing laws.
