Spokane has real estate property management options available. The property management firm is put into place by the developers of owners of a property, be it commercial or residential in nature. They are responsible for maximizing the returns on the investment in the property. This can be done by acting in the interests of the owner in specific ways, such as marketing and financial duties, tenancy and occupancy issues, management of the common facilities both interior and exterior to the property, as well as administration and risk management. They are paid on a contract basis for the services rendered. Real estate managers act as the go-between for the owners and the users of the property (unless they are the same. Even then, a management team is usually deployed).
