If you’re feeling constantly overwhelmed in the office, work becomes miserable. With phones ringing off the hook, emails pinging in your inbox and colleagues after you for your signature approving the latest big decision, it can feel impossible to get work done. Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management has these tips for you:
Accept applications online. As a property manager, you’ve got enough on your plate without holding the hands of each potential new tenant. Post your applications online and have folks submit them digitally. There’s less paperwork to keep track of and a digital stack waiting for you when you can get to it.
Track maintenance and tenant communications online, too. Linking plumbers and handy men to specific tenant needs can land you on the phone for hours. Instead, have maintenance needs logged online for easy tracking.
Try the Pomodoro Method. Break your time up into 25 minute chunks and devote all your attention to one task at a time. Multitasking can actually be less productive in the long run!
