• Real Estate Associate
• Real Estate Consultant
• Real Estate Manager
• Sales Assistant

Employment of property, real estate, and community association managers is projected to grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

Employment growth may result from more people living in the types of buildings that property management companies operate, such as apartment buildings, condominiums, cooperatives, planned communities, and senior housing.
Growth in the single-family housing market also may have a positive influence on demand, as some new housing developments will require property managers to oversee jointly owned common areas, such as pools, gyms, and business centers and to enforce homeowner association laws.
