Meet Sharon Jacobs Cail, Leasing Agent for BMG
Sharon Jacobs Cail is one of our talented leasing agents for Bay Property Management Group. She works for our Northern Virginia office and has been with us for a little over a year now. Aside from working in the rental property management industry, she’s been a Realtor since 2002.
Her background in real estate has helped her succeed in her position here at BMG. Now, let’s take a look into a day in the life of Sharon and some of her daily tasks.
A Day in the Life of Sharon Jacobs Cail
Sharon is an early bird and likes to start her day early in the still of the morning. Some of her main responsibilities include listing, orientation, and everything in between. Usually, her work days are busy from start to finish, filled with interacting with rental property owners and new tenants.
Sharon’s favorite part of her job is having work independence and setting her own schedule. She sets goals for herself each month and loves to achieve them. Additionally, she loves to meet new people daily and assist them with important tasks. She says:
“This position is very rewarding.”
One thing that surprised Sharon about working in the rental property management industry is how some people can be unpleasant to work with. However, despite some negativity, most people are relatively nice and easy to work with, which makes the job worthwhile.
Why Sharon Loves Bay Property Management Group
According to Sharon, one thing that sets Bay Property Management Group apart is that they listen to you, like one big family. She says:
“When we get on a meeting, the first thing that is asked is “How are you doing?”. They understand that we are professionals with families, and they allow you to be free with your work schedule.”
Here at BMG, we strive to create a healthy balance between the needs of property owners and tenants to keep everyone satisfied. Sharon’s best piece of advice for those considering a job in the property management field or those already in the field includes the following:
“Time management is THE biggest part of the industry. The outcome is the same in all transactions, but the process might be different. So, find what works best for you so you can work best for your clients. And don’t overthink the process.”
