Dealing with Tenants


You need a lot of patience when it comes to dealing with tenants who don’t know as much as you do.

I am a property manager and every single day I talk to at least one tenant. Many days, dealing with tenants takes up the majority of my time.

Sometimes the tenant has a problem that I have to help solve.  Other times the tenant has a question about something they are “wondering” about.  Many days someone will have a question that just makes me want to roll my eyes.

The other day, I was talking to another property manager.  As we talked, it became obvious that she was irritated with a lot of the tenants she dealt with.  But, she really, really hated dealing with tenants that were college students, because they didn’t seem to know anything. They asked a lot of questions and took up a lot of time.
