Property managers have always been jack-of-all-trades. But ever since the COVID-19 pandemic sparked significant changes in commercial real estate, REMS (Real Estate Management Services) professionals have been working through an accelerated evolution that will carry us all into the future. More than ever, they’re assisting landlords and tenants in meeting today’s demands with action, innovation and a forward-looking mindset.
