Due to today’s technology, the office staff is not seeing residents in the office as much.  People can lease, sign documents, pay rent and turn in service requests online. Many properties are installing package lockers, so fewer residents come to the office for deliveries.

Therefore, the maintenance team sees and talks with residents more than the management staff!!! 

What does that mean?  The maintenance team needs MORE training in customer service, being likable, how to handle angry residents, being non-confrontational, fair housing issues, words they can use and words they shouldn’t.

Primary points:

  • It’s all about the rent; rent cycles, occupancy, profitability
  • What it costs to turn/make ready an apartment
  • The true reasons that it is important to keep current residents
  • Why apartment residents move
  • Why and how the Maintenance Techs are important to Public Relations and Retention
  • Successfully handling a resident when they are angry; words that work
  • Why being a team player is critical to the success of the property
  • What happens when we don’t communicate?
  • Personal appearance is important
  • Personal power; life lessons that work at home as well as work
  • Time and stress management
  • Fair Housing tips for Maintenance

Who should attend?

  • Every member of the maintenance/service team
  • Those who train Customer Service and Maintenance staff
