This position requires three to five years of professional experience, with at least one year of experience in the real estate development industry or a related field. A DM must understand all financial aspects of a real estate development project and be capable of detailed budget and schedule tracking and forecasting. The DM will be responsible to direct internal team members and external consultants to meet business plan objectives for at least one development project. Development Managers must maintain high standards of quality through all steps of the company’s disciplined development and reporting processes. This role requires professionalism in interfacing with government officials, financial institutions, investors, and other key stakeholders. Because much of the work performed by a DM will receive minimal direct supervision, leadership skills, good decision-making, and initiative are essential.
