We incorporate security into all kinds of things that take place in our daily lives. We set up a home security system to keep our families safe. We use security and backups on our computer to make our most sensitive data more protected. We even buy insurance policies to ensure everything in our daily lives is safe from harm, from our homes, to our cars, and even to our very lives.
Managing a property takes a lot of work. Every day presents its own
unique challenges, and you never know what may transpire when you show
up for work in the morning. One day it could be working with tenants,
solving their problems. The next you could completely switch gears,
getting your hands dirty with repair work in the building.
As an owner of a commercial building, one of your top priorities is to keep monthly costs as low as possible. There’s the monthly expenses that are consistent month after month – things like your heating and electrical expenses – and then there are those unexpected problems that arise without warning, sometimes crippling the projected budget you had set aside.
As a manager of a building or property, you quickly learn the art of mediation. One minute you may be working with a vendor to keep the building’s operating system running efficient and smooth; the next moment you may be calming a tenant down after finding the change in the system disrupted his office’s workflow. Give and take; it’s the only way to make sure every day runs perfectly.
