There are property managers over many different businesses. You will find that someone is in charge of making sure the every day operation of the facility is top notch. Many people want to be in charge but they do not want the responsibility that is assigned to such a duty. They want the power and the money but do not want to deal with the responsibility of actually taking care of the issue at hand. If this is what you are expecting then there is no reason for you to be a property manager.
Over the property manager you will see an owner. The owner will make sure that their properties are running well. They want to ensure their property managers are running their facilities the way that was previously discussed and laid out. If something is different than the original plan, they would like to know why the property manager decided to go in that direction. These owners want to put someone in charge that is able to handle the business as well as any issue that could arise. The first or second sign that a property manager is not measuring up to expectations, they will certainly look for a replacement.
As a property manager you do have a lot of freedom to do as you wish with the business in terms of bring new customers in and ensuring they are taken care of. You also have a set of rules that you need to follow to ensure that the daily operation is running smoothly. Take your time as a property manager seriously because it is a great job to have if you can handle it. If you have great communication with the owner and a great understanding they will typically not bother you much. This is of course when they check in you tell them everything they need to hear and want to see.
There will be great rewards for being a property manager but do not squander them because you want freedom, money and power. You might not realize it but you have the power to make many people very please because you have helped them. Also you will have to make decisions that could potentially make person very upset. You can try to prepare yourself as much as you can but it is very hard dealing with the emotions of another person. Take being a property manager seriously and you will succeed.
