After 14 years I couldn't deal with the people and their rudeness anymore so I moved over to commercial. You are definitely appreciated and treated with respect. Your working and dealing with professionals, not adolescents. I've been so much happier since!

As a 40 year veteran in property management, I have taken two breaks. I also peppered my experiences and worked on different types of projects and properties:
1. Did new construction
2. Did renovation work on site.
3. Did work in corporate housing. I jumped into the vendor side for a bit.
4. Restructured the housing division on an Indian reservation.
Condo conversion
Re-marketed a property strictly for the deaf community.
5. Worked in difference positions; leasing, assistant manager, pacesetter, regional manager, VP, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing.
Etc.
Please try different things.
It’s really about who you work with and for.
These days, I’m in it for a hot minute, if the environment aka corporate culture is off, I bounce out pretty fast.
Keep moving around until you find your fit, don’t settle -
♥️
Best of luck

Donna Hickey this woman right here????❤️‼️If you ever get the opportunity to work alongside her, as I once did, you will love the job again.
Do take a break when burned out. I am currently on a break. It is great to be in a completely stress free environment, but I know I will be back in the biz within a year. It’s in the blood.

I found a smaller/family-owned company who really respect and reward their hard working team members. The larger company’s can be difficult to move up in and even be heard. Regardless, verbal abuse from residents should not be tolerated. You are there to provide a service, not be someone’s human punching bag! Sorry you had to deal with that!

Tried to leave a few times but always came back...it is a love/hate industry you either love it & carry on or hate it & never look back when you leave...but you always have the good & bad memories

It seems as though every industry has its "roller coaster moments" but if deep down, you love what you do then I think you are in a great place in life :-). Inhale the good and exhale the BS, you are a rockstar and don't ever let anyone make you believe otherwise.

And if it doesn't get better, try another company? There's always those up and down moments but I've finally been with a company that I'm happy and grateful to be a part of. Your uppers should make you feel appreciated!

I took a break after 18 years and got my real estate license. Now I’m ready to come back.
