I had gone online to get some information on certified property manager certification, and I found a website that had a lot of information not only about property management certifications but so many other things to do with property management as well. I knew from my late teens that I wanted to become involved in this area of expertise, mainly because I had lived in a lot of different apartment complexes in my life even at such a young age, and I always found things wrong with each one.
I knew that if I was in charge, that things could have been so much better for not only me but the other tenants, so that is what I studied when I went to college. I was able to get the certification that I needed, and I worked my way up the ladder quickly. I started in the mail room of a property management company, but within two years I had my own office and properties to take care of. Though I had plenty of great ideas of my own, I knew that there was a lot I could still learn, which is why I started reading an online journal that has trends, management and maintenance tips and leads, and so much more.
It was amazing that I was able to get so much information in one spot, and I actually credit that with my quick rise up the ranks. I am not afraid to say I don’t have all the answers, but I am also not afraid to search diligently until I have them. Having this journal, which is updated quite frequently, has really helped me make sure that my properties are handled the proper way. It works too because I have had nothing but compliments from the tenants who live in my complexes.
