What is a Property Manager?

We have talked a lot about the duties and responsibilities of a property managers, and what you can expect from a property manager as the property owner. Fact is, that what you can expect from a property manager varies on the manager and the company for whom they work. At Kuester we have high standards and hope that we meet and exceed the expectation of our customer. That said, there are a few things that should be universal, regardless of which property manager you have contracted.

A property manager is the legal representative of the landlord or property owner and is responsible for the day to day operations of a property, which varies depending on the type pf property. All different types of properties can benefit from a property manager, since they can manage the tenants residing there or the businesses doing business on the property.

Property managers are in charge of single unit rental homes, multi-unit and apartment units, and commercial office and retail developments, and is responsible for maintaining the property grounds and the building itself, including the repairs of the common areas and sometimes the tenant space as well.

In addition to the day-to-day upkeep and emergency situations or a particular property, the property manager can also handle the business and financial end of their rental business. Project managers find prospective tenants, collect rent, and take rental applications, and will manage vendors and contractors and through short and long-term projects.

The property manager is the liason between the ownership of the property and those using it - and will run the property and the investment thereof efficient and effectively.
