Tara says the role of BDM is often assumed simply to be just signing new landlords. From her experience she can assure you it's much more than that. A successful BDM needs to be sales minded, able to establish and maintain relationships with landlords and referral sources whilst understanding the vision of the Agency and provide direction for the entire Property Management Department.
