What Tenants Aren’t Telling You — and Why
Tenant Confidential graphicFiguring out what a tenant really wants might seem like a tough case to crack, but a few simple clues—and communications strategies—can make it easy to solve. Tenants often have needs or wants that go uncommunicated, and for many and varied reasons that don’t require a private eye to uncover. Maybe the relationship never advanced beyond the basics of maintaining the lighting and cleaning the rugs. Maybe the property manager could never find time to sit down with the tenant and strategize long-term goals. Maybe the tenant couldn’t articulate a coming need.

Or, maybe they just didn’t want to rock the boat. “There can be a hesitation on the part of the tenant to complain, especially when most things are going well.” So says Joe Markling, BOMA Fellow, CPM, RPA, the San Antonio-based executive director of National Real Estate Operations for USAA Real Estate Company.
