Did you plan to have a career in property management? I don´t know about you, but I started my career in the hotel field and fell into property management completely by accident, and what an adventure it´s been. Who knew that I´d be fortunate enough to be able to work for excellent companies, meet great colleagues and train and mentor great employees-here, there and everywhere! My travels in the name of real estate management have taken me to Russia, Ukraine, the Republic of Georgia, China, South Korea and Portugal. Who knew?
I´ve recently had the pleasure of addressing real estate managers throughout California and Hawaii. Often, I´ll ask how many of them planned a career in this field or even better, how many actually went to school for it. No matter the size of the group-25 or 100-the response is usually similar: one or two hands go up. The moral of this story is that you may not always end up where you started out, but it can be a great adventure along the way.
Where did you start out? I´d love to hear your experience!
