ACCT is seeking our next Director of Property Management (DPM) to join the senior leadership team and build on the success of our outgoing DPM who led the department for over five years and will be stepping down this summer.
The Director of Property Management (DPM) is responsible for ensuring the successful operation of ACCT's portfolio of permanently affordable housing, which includes approximately 350 rental apartments, 340 lots in nine mobile home parks, and 75 shared equity homes. The DPM is part of the leadership team reporting to the Executive Director, and leads the Property Management Team which includes approximately four direct reports and a total department of 10-15.
Key responsibilities include hiring, training, and coaching staff; developing and ensuring consistent implementation of policies and procedures across property management, regulatory compliance, landlord tenant law, fair housing, and related areas; performance management and monitoring KPIs; overseeing asset management in coordination with housing partners, maintenance, and finance staff; and acting as primary point of contact for effective implementation of ACCT's property management database (Yardi Voyager 7S). The DPM may take on special projects as assigned.
This job is based in Vergennes but requires travel to sites across Addison County, primarily Middlebury, Bristol, Vergennes, and Starksboro. Some work-from-home is also possible. Occasional on-call availability may be required.
The successful candidate will have a Bachelor's Degree or higher, strong supervisory and management skills, a high degree of proficiency with technology, and prior experience in a management role. Property management, affordable housing, and nonprofit experience are preferred but not required. Experience with trauma-informed practices a plus. Training and professional development opportunities will be provided, and curiosity and a desire to learn new skills are critical. Required attributes include strong problem-solving and analytical skills, good judgment and decision-making, leadership skills, and the ability to think critically and tackle challenges as part of a team. A commitment to our mission of providing safe, quality, affordable housing to low- and moderate-income Vermonters is vital.
