A successful property management business is like a well-run small business: it requires smart marketing and efficient operations, as well as a knack for knowing what tenants want. An effective manager will know how to schedule repairs, maximize revenues and keep costs down, while providing good service to tenants.
Check out our list of the top qualities of successful property management companies to see if you’ve got what it takes to succeed.

Ongoing Training

​To stay on top, successful property management companies are always learning. The trends and regulatory changes in the industry can shift so quickly that most leaders don’t know what they will be dealing with in a month or two. They learn not only from professionals in their field but also from each other. The best companies encourage an environment of continued learning within the company structure: they want everyone involved to be up-to-date on new ideas and best practices.


​Managers who know their property areas and the amenities and services that can improve the experience of their guests are more likely to have good business results. They know what their competition is doing, and whether it’s worth changing. They know the strong markets and sub-markets within their areas of operation, as well as what’s happening in other areas of the country.

Positive Outlook

Most property managers would agree—the job is hard, not easy. It takes a positive attitude and thick skin to be successful in this industry. What tends to get people through the tough times? Learning to spot opportunities and focusing on what is working instead of what’s not will help you get through those tough moments with grace.

Excellent Customer Service

Opening lines of communication and building strong relationships with clients, tenants and contractors can prevent problems from escalating. The best property managers know how to get the job done in a way that keeps everyone happy and working toward a perfect solution!
