This is a full time Assistant Portfolio Association Manager Position assisting with the management of condo and homeowner associations in the Naples area. It does not include associations in Lee County, or in Marco.
You will start by assisting 2 of our portfolio association managers, and when we grow and add more associations to manage, you will likely get the opportunity to start your own portfolio. While you do not need to have a CAM license, or Property Management experience, to be considered for this opportunity, either or both of those are a plus. What I am looking for is proven, professional business management experience, managing a staff of people. Business executives and managers who are not ready to retire, and who are still high energy, make excellent association managers.
If you are an experienced Portfolio Association Manager, even better! We can use you!
I started Ability Management 14 years ago, and have grown the business from 1 condo association with 32 units in 2003, to management of over 40 associations with almost 6,000 units. We manage Condo Associations, Home Owner Associations, and Master Associations in Naples and Bonita Springs, with expansion planned into Marco Island. My business plan is to expand the business to approximately 10,000 units, and employ 18-20 people. We are successful and profitable. Currently there are 12 of us in our main office, including 6 licensed portfolio managers. We have been very successful when making presentations to Boards in getting new business. The possibilities are excellent for us in this business because of the excellent customer service that we offer, especially when compared to most of the other property management companies in the area.
Below is a high level outline of the responsibilities for this job. I have successfully managed hundreds of people, and know how to create a work environment where my teammates both succeed and enjoy their job. We enjoy very little employee or association turnover.
We have a great support team in our office, who will happily and ably assist you with many of your responsibilities.
We have a generous mileage reimbursement, cell phone allowance, vacation policy and holiday policy. Unfortunately, we don't offer health insurance coverage at this time.
We are located in North Naples off of Airport Road in the Walden Oaks office park (just north of the new Hyundai dealership) approx. 1 mile north of Pine Ridge Rd. Address: 6736 Lone Oak Blvd, Naples FL 34109. Our phone is 239-591-4200; fax: 239-596-1919; You can learn more about our company and myself at our website: www.AbilityTeam.com Please take the time to visit this website.
Thank you for your interest.

Skills and Experience needed
It is critical that you be able to prioritize your open issues, and prioritize your time. Virtually every property manager that has failed at Ability Management has failed because of their inability to successfully do those 2 things. We will provide you with any tool you need to help you stay organized.
You will need to be physically fit enough to walk around these properties. Normally, a Manager is out of their car for much of a site visit. Itís not a marathon, but you need to be able to walk for 60+ minutes at a time in the hot sun, across yards, uneven ground, through and behind shrubs, etc.
Lots and lots of Common Sense, along with the ability to manage your time and activities efficiently. Property Management is a competitive business, with very thin profit margins, and all of our teammates have to work smart and not waste time.
Ability to communicate in a positive fashion and deal with owners, who often are complaining, sometimes irrationally, and keep smiling. This is tough sometimes.
Knowledge of general maintenance and repairs.
Ability to manage subcontractors.
We use Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, Access) and TOPS2000 Association Management and Accounting software. You need to be reasonably proficient using spreadsheets, word processing, and email on a computer. Not an expert, but comfortable. We will teach you how to use our software.
The ability to smile and stay positive when things go wrong.
I hope you find this position interesting, and that we receive an email from you expressing interest. We have a fun office and a great bunch of teammates, so send me that email! Please type "Assistant Property Manager" in the subject line.
