With hurricane season upon us, the property management team at Corporate Realty is once again reviewing our emergency procedures, updating our contact lists, coordinating with our emergency vendors and advising our tenants on severe weather protocol. We will be prepared – it’s what property managers do.
With 25 years of commercial property and asset management experience, I’m frequently asked questions like, “What exactly does a property manager do?” My usual answer is that being a asset property manager is like being the mayor of a small city. As a manager, you are responsible to your tenants for their safety and welfare and responsible to your clients for sound management of their asset.
A recent security threat in a local office building brought to the forefront the importance of having a qualified asset property management team in place. When the threat was received, the management team immediately initiated the policies and procedures that had been reviewed countless times. By following a well -established protocol, the threat was assessed and proper authorities we notified. The threat was determined to be unsubstantiated and operations returned to normal.
