This is my second week with the Assistant Property Manager. This week was somehow even busier than last week. On Friday alone, we had 8 new move-ins and 2 move-outs. With it being so busy, we weren’t in the office very much as we were doing both move-in and move-out inspections. I was even able to do the entire move-out process for 2 units to help take some of the workload off of the Assistant Manager. Also during this week, I learned about the delinquency process and how we work with the residents as much as we can to get the rent payments. Typically I don’t like asking or talking about money or financial situations, however, it is part of the job and is something I need to work on. The biggest thing for me was realizing that to help the residents to the best of my ability, I need to be comfortable talking with them about their financial situation. Some people didn’t want to talk to me about it since I was the Intern, however, most people felt comfortable with it and understood that it is part of my training.
