Positions and Typical Job Titles
Real estate management positions require a range of skills in negotiating, managing personnel, financial management, marketing, and leasing and tenant management. You're a sales person, a lawyer, an accountant, and a marketing person, all rolled into one. But chances are, your position will fall into one of these general categories:
Site or Building Manager - the site/building manager is responsible for day-to-day dealings with tenants, leasing, collecting rents, and supervising property maintenance.
Property Manager - the property manager may be responsible for operating a single large property, or a portfolio of several properties.
Asset Manager - asset managers are responsible for long-range planning and evaluation of investment properties. They often analyze a property's physical and financial condition and recommend ways to maximize the owner's return on investment.
Facility Manager - facility managers coordinate the needs of people, equipment, and operational activities within the physical workplace, for government, nonprofit, and private entities.
