“There was a time for us in the beginning when we believed that property management only involved the oversight of mowing lawns, cleaning pools, providing financial statements and basically maintaining properties. While those are still important components, the job of property management has become much more complex. We now find ourselves negotiating contracts, supervising vendors, coordinating collections, and managing budgets that are usually associated with some of the most prestigious properties in the country. That is a significant responsibility, and that’s why we encourage our employees to achieve advanced designations.”Robert White, Managing Director
