A Real Estate Property Manager is responsible for the management of a portfolio of potentially several to over 100 properties. This is a demanding and busy role, wherein the Property Manager will liaise with owners and tenants on many property-related matters, including buying, selling, leasing and maintenance.

- communicating with property owners on the selling or leasing of their property

- arranging maintenance and repairs for properties within the portfolio
- liaising with tenants on maintenance requirements and rental payments
