Frequently Asked Questions

How do project managers in commercial real estate work?

Commercial project managers work in the development and construction of a property. Project managers will work through the process of purchasing land and building and developing of the facilities. They will work with the landowner/investor/future tenant, guiding them through the various stages of development. The ultimate goal is to convert the land from its current use to higher and better use. Doing so will include understanding the needs of the project, financing, marketing, planning, construction, and leasing. Working together with a real estate developer, you can maximize your ROI by transforming your land into a profitable property to add to your investment portfolio. You can learn more about the services offered by commercial property managers by contacting the experts at Boyer.

What do project managers in real estate do?

Commercial project managers work with investors, property owners, or future tenants to acquire land and develop that land into better use. These project managers (or land developers) oversee the purchase, design, and construction of residential, commercial, and industrial properties. Part of land development requires a project manager to work with local governments to ensure that the project complies with zoning ordinances and other regulations. Other responsibilities of a land developer involve identifying access to water and sewer mains, drainage outlets, and other utilities such as electricity, gas, and cable. Additionally, land developers consider the property’s topography and natural features when determining design and development. Land developers also oversee the planning of common areas, landscaping, stormwater management, and offer recommendations to optimize the project’s layout.
