The General Manager is responsible for all operations of a large luxury apartment community within a large city.
General Managers run the show, so to speak. The General Manager is a business leader responsible for the operations, finances, and staffing of a multi-million dollar apartment community as defined by Aimco policies and procedures. Aimco recognizes that the image of an apartment community is in many ways a direct reflection of the integrity and professionalism of the Manager.
A General Manager is a sales leader. The General Manager sets the standard on how Leasing Consultants engage prospective and current residents. The Manager trains Leasing Consultants on isolating the needs of prospective residents, addressing those needs with the right apartment homes, and closing the sale. In addition, a great General Manager models those successful sales techniques on a daily basis.
A General Manager is a team leader. A successful Manager builds and maintains a team-oriented office environment and encourages the staff to rely on each other’s strengths. Aimco believes that a successful General Manager motivates, challenges, and delegates, but has the know-how to perform the responsibilities of each team member. The size of a team depends upon the size of the apartment community, but typically a staff will consist of a General Manager, Assistant Manager, Leasing Consultants, and the Service Team.
Finally, a General Manager is a customer service leader. Being a people person is not enough. The ideal candidate must be able to address the concerns of current and prospective residents in a friendly and professional manner. A successful candidate must have strong organizational abilities, follow-up skills, and a great attention to detail.
Are you the right person for the Job?
The ideal General Manager may not necessarily have previous apartment management experience. However, the right candidate should have a strong management, sales, customer service, and fiscal decision-making background.
