Based in Calgary, Alberta, Emerald Management & Realty Ltd. has more than 35 years of experience providing property management services for investors. Emerald Management & Realty Ltd. manages several types of properties, including rental houses, apartments, condominiums, and commercial buildings. To have a successful career in property management, individuals need a range of skills.

For many people, attaining a certification in real estate or property management can be very helpful, especially if their aim is working in a well-established property management firm. However, individuals also can acquire most of the essential knowledge through on-the-job experiences. Although contractors will handle the actual work, having a basic knowledge of building repairs and maintenance is vital for pricing and quality assurance purposes. Property managers also must be able to inspect properties and identify maintenance needs and safety issues.

Since property managers deal with residents, contractors, and others, they must have excellent abilities in building relationships with people. In addition, property managers must keep track of rent payments and cash flow and thus need to have solid financial skills.

While the field of property management isn’t for everyone, those that enjoy problem solving and assisting people obtain results, this can be a very rewarding career. The opportunity to be hands-on and deal with a variety of challenges can be very rewarding in seeing projects from implementation to completion. From maintaining safe and attractive properties to arranging financing for major renovations, each day is varied as the people and properties being dealt with.
