Re: Property Manager, Advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Udell:

I am eager to join forces with ABC Company as your new property manager. With five years of experience as a property manager for a large apartment complex, complemented by 12+ years of prior success as a leasing consultant and licensed general contractor, I offer a “three-for-the-price-of-one” hiring advantage over other candidates you may be considering.

After earning a BS in Construction Engineering and Management (BSCEM) from Sometown University, I spent the first decade of my career as a general contractor for a leading homebuilder. Business was good, and I delivered dozens of residential developments. But when the recession hit and the real estate bubble burst, I found myself out of work along with many other construction industry professionals.

I found a new home with XYZ Company as a leasing consultant, delivering goal-surpassing results such as 99% occupancy for the company’s 400-unit high-rise condominium complex. This success led the CEO to offer me a promotion to my current position—property manager for XYZ’s newly opened, 750-unit luxury apartment complex.

In this high-visibility leadership position, I supervise a team of 15 leasing consultants, property engineers and support staff. My construction industry knowledge and contacts have enabled me to reduce maintenance costs by 18% annually. I have surpassed goals in other KPI areas, including rent growth (12% over goal), occupancy (consistently at 99%—8% above goal), resident satisfaction (25% over goal) and quick leasing of vacant units (accelerating the typical vacancy-to-lease timeline threefold).

These and related results are detailed in my attached résumé, and are reproducible for ABC Company. I will call your office on Monday to schedule a convenient time to discuss this opportunity. Thank you.
