Property Management: An Overview

Learn how to do it right - Right from the start!

With over twenty years of experience in the real estate industry, Peter O’Brien has been an Owner, Director, CEO and General Manager at some of the most successful Real Estate and Property related companies in Melbourne. He has a passion for the property industry that exceeds other specialists and this passion is contagious to those that he works with.   Peter has established and built agencies from the ground up, purchased and sold a number of rent rolls, managed multi office networks and trained and assisted hundreds of agents across Australia.

Property Management offers a varied, diverse and financially rewarding career. In real estate it is often referred to as the ‘back bone‘  because it provides a steady income for business. In fact, many estate agents now successfully operate a business based solely on leasing and managing property.

This workshop provides an overview of what Property Management is.  The property management cycle is studied and you will learn exactly why each step in the process is significant to the overall management of the property. It will give you the knowledge of what a Property Manager is responsible for and also covers other employment opportunities and different departmental structures that exist across Australia. It covers all aspects of the property manager job role and outlines what is important and what processes need to be followed.
