Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

After coming across an advertisement in a local newspaper, in which you have asked for a seasoned property management professional to join your team, I have decided to apply for it.

In support of my suitability for this job, I have previously worked as a successful real estate agent for almost 3 years for one of the renowned real estate companies in our country before being promoted to a senior managerial role. Later on, I also worked at a very busy residential hotel in our city in the capacity of an Assistant Manager. In all of these previous roles, I have learned how to bridge the gap between the expectation of a landlord and the tenants, by properly maintaining the rental properties and adhering to the safety regulations and letting legislation.

Besides, once I am hired, I would first want to make sure that your tenants are getting the standard management services for the prices they are paying. I would also ensure that they pay a rent which is on par with the market price, in comparison with your competitors, to ensure that your property is always an attractive choice for the tenants.

I can meet you in a formal interview and discuss this further.

Yours faithfully,

Oscar Miller
