Q: What is it like working as a Property Manager?
"More Stress, More Freedom."
The promotion from Leasing Agent to Assistant Manager, and from Assistant Manager to Property Manager, is intrinsically tied to a correlating relationship in stress and freedom. The higher your position is, the more stressful it's bound to be, but the amount of freedom that you will have in that position also grows. Issues that weren't your designation before are now your primary responsibility, and compounded on that is your daily, weekly, monthly, annual paperwork, and without exception the minute by minute interruptions- but you can choose how you want to go about changing, resolving, and improving the issues within your scope. It's basically one of those, "With power comes responsibility," transitions.
