I have evolved as a real estate professional through the years. I once struggled as an administrator. Now I am challenged with the nuances of management. As a manager, I am only as good as my team and the service partners who make my job possible.
The size or the type of property you manage does not matter. To have a career in commercial property management means you have to be adaptable to change and be able to employ multiple disciplines.

Daily progress is more important than a week of flurried activity when it comes to developing personal skills. True growth is the slow and plodding progress toward success. Successful people are those who dedicate themselves to a cause and painstakingly move toward a higher goal.
Many people look for easy, quick success and give up before achieving lasting results. Those who are in the continual pursuit of the quick and easy road to success will find themselves repeatedly disappointed. Studies have shown that high expectations for academic achievements, career goals or athletic purposes can help people achieve more without causing burnout.

While mentoring is generally regarded as something you do to help others, the role of mentor can actually help you to succeed in your career. Mentors have an opportunity to think beyond their own situation, get insight into the perspectives of others, and develop relationships and trust with those they mentor.
Guiding a mentee with career advice can play a vital role in the person’s career decisions and successes. The mentor/mentee relationship involves shared accountability and a focus on common objectives and goals.
