Never limit yourself to just your job description. In this industry, we wear many many hats. Learn to do someone else's job. Don't feel like you ever have to be stuck. If you feel after a while that you are confident and can succeed in a role, apply for it! Even without a degree in this industry, you can grow. Also, the Apartment Association has great classes to further their education that they would like to take advantage of.

On the maintenance end, don’t panic! First make sure people and animals are safe, than asses the problem and act. If nobody else is taking charge be that person.

Find the things that nobody likes doing and do them. But don’t just do them - do them great. You will get noticed.

Sometimes you just have to find things that make feel good. Hate paperwork? Do it but plan great resident events! Hate travel? Find one thing in each place that you feels great (like a sunset). Hate doing conference calls? Lead a webinar for the team! All jobs are a off, so find joy everyday.

In property management we are providing homes to our residents which is their most private personal space where they sleep trusting we will take care of them and store all their prized possessions... and as such should be treated as such!

Also, as a property manager you are being entrusted with a multi million dollar asset and that is like a small city. The Property manager is the mayor who keeps everything going.
