Good customer service matters to you.  You take pride in your customer service and believe that it’s a reflection on you, your work and the organization you represent.

You sweat the small stuff. You’ve always been a “details” person. You live in the forest but focus on the trees. Having a consistent look and feel, and the finishing touches, matter.  To you, getting the details right is essential to a good outcome.

You’re obsessed with organization.  You’re known as someone who gets things done quickly and calmly. You can handle many responsibilities at once and you instinctively discern between what’s important and what’s urgent.  Things don’t fall through the cracks.

You’re a hungry learner. You enjoy constantly taking in new information and solving problems. You are committed to continuous learning about the world and the work around you.

You thrive in an entrepreneurial environment. You’re resourceful and at ease with ambiguity and rapid change. You possess a positive, can-do attitude, and are adept at identifying creative solutions that turn challenges into opportunities. You can handle many important responsibilities at once and you’re rigorous about prioritization.  You enjoy working collaboratively, but are also able to get things done on our own. 


  • 1 to 2 years of successful property management, or comparable experience.
  • Knowledge of or experience in non-profit property management related services.  Experience with homeless, veteran and/or developmentally-disabled populations a plus.
