Thinking of relocating to the area of Charlotte and pursuing a job in the Property Management field. I have my NC real estate license. Is that necessary? What is the pay scale? How easy/difficult is it to find jobs?

Any help would be awesome. Thx

Are you a provisional broker or a full broker? I believe for property management you have to have eliminated the provisional. Most property managers are paid on commission just like the rest of us. They are paid per property or a certain amount for each property when they are leased. I don't do property management, but that is what I was told by one a couple of years ago.

"Property Management" is a broad term, that encompasses a lot of different activities. What do you mean by that?

Residential or commercial? Commercial you should be a full time employee paid a salary. I don't know about Residential.

I am getting my license before arriving to the area. Ive it would be provisional at first. I am looking at residential property management. Ive looked on line and it has said they were salaried. Interesting point you make, I will further research. Thanks.

If you're leasing apartments, you don't need a real estate license.

Maybe I misunderstood. I am thinking working for a property management company finding tenants. Before I was a realtor, I worked for a company that did background checks for them and the few that I asked told me they were on commission. Maybe that's not true or all. I didn't know you could get your license without taking the test here, if you are already have a license in another state, or physically attending classes in NC. That wasn't available when I got my license last year.

Residential property managers in the Charlotte area average $50,000 per year. Somebody without experience should expect to be offered a slightly lower salary.

Greystar and Lincoln Harris are among the best to land a residential property manager job with.
