Every property is unique and I know first hand that rule does not apply at all. I have done, leasing, managing and overseen several properties for REIT and fee managed owners. When I was a PM, we had movie rental, laundry drop off and pick up, thousands of packages, 10-15 tours per day. We were way understaffed and I had several days where I wanted to quit. I could not do the job of a PM as the leasing and application processing took 90% of my time. I promised myself that when I became a RM, I would not subject my team to what I endured. I set goals for everyone as bonuses were performance based so everyone had an equal part to play. Now that I am self employed, I hear from friends and associates that management is rarely in the office. When you call, it goes to an answering service. I guess I am just old school to where people want to interact with on-site staff and want things done yesterday. Serving our residents/clients was one of my top priorities and always will be.
