Welcome to Season 3 of The Top Floor Podcast
Welcome to season three of The Top Floor podcast brought to you by AppFolio.
After two great seasons of hearing real estate leaders share their thoughts on the property management industry, we’re back for a third time around.
What Do Property Management Employees Really Want?
The foundation of the property management business is, of course, rooted in people. It takes a village of employees to accommodate clients and residents in a 24/7, always-on industry in which property managers must be available at any moment.
At a time when real estate is in increasingly high demand as residents search for bigger spaces and new homes, property managers are in need of a full staff to keep operations running smoothly. However, staffing in the world of property management has been an ongoing pain point exacerbated by thousands of employees quitting amid the “The Great Resignation,” coupled with the new normal of hybrid work during the pandemic.
To combat this cycle, we discover how property managers are making do with smaller staffs, as well as the tech solutions being used to fill in the gaps. To discover how workers on the frontlines get the support they need to increase their bandwidth and how their employers measure up in terms of worker satisfaction, we turn to recent research produced by AppFolio in partnership with IREM. In this episode of The Top Floor, we speak with Steve Cadigan, author of Workquake, as well as Barry Blanton of AMO management firm Blanton Turner, to discover the perfect combination of employees and tech solutions to resolve today’s challenges in property management.
