    Since I am by myself, except for when the maint man is here, I am constantly working against my last year's numbers. Every single morning I review the overnight close that will compare current to last year(s) at a glance. I have goals I set for myself on a daily basis. Zero vacancies-done it. Zero receivables-done it. Higher numbers than last year-done it. New systems explored-done it.

    Last but not least, realize that I get older every day and cannot do some things that I used to be physically able to do and therefore realize my limitations-accept this hourly.

    Checking this forum every day is a big plus that I did not see in the article. Members here are lucky for the help.

      Such a great article!!! And I am shocked to see that I do "most" of them. I would add: interact on a personal level with your customers. Be friendly, humble, helpful. My tenants adore me, and I them. It's because I go out of my way to get to know them, remember them, and interact every time whether on the phone or in person. People like to be treated like people. Just sayin.....

I was looking at a specific parcel for a while, until I zoomed out and realized there was a facility...

        Take a look at recently constructed retail space and medical offices in your area for inspiration. Those buildings will often have some great ideas with high end appeal.

        Of the sites I have seen recently that really pop, I think some of the items that are in common are taller horizontal...

        At last facility I had indoor units with a camera in the hallway. I had a lady tenant that had a unit under the camera and I could see her great. She would lock her unit to go and walk the distance of the hallway and even get the door at the end open to leave and would then walk back to unit to check...
