Property managers are tasked with taking care of an enormous range of responsibilities. You need to be people-oriented, taking care of your residents. You need to stay on top of regulations. You need to be superbly organized, ensuring that units are in move-in condition and maintenance personnel are readily available in case a unit needs fixed. In short, property managers have a lot of pressure to be on top of a wide range of subjects. I have compiled a list of the best property manager blogs around.
