Have owned our park (about 100 spaces) for a couple of years and it came with the current manager who has just given notice. The manager is very good at many things, and then not so good at others. Still, the previous owner had the manager in place (who was provided free home, lot rent, phone, utilities, gasoline for vehicle, credit card, etc – plus a monthly and other compensation too such as commissions on sales and other perks) and we kept them and, although costly, the relationship was working fairly well. Now, with this change, we would like to move to the “Greeter” style of manager, realizing that having a greeter will require me to do more in running the day-to-day activities of the park. I know about looking within the park for people who keep their homes and cars neat and clean, and routinely keep their accounts paid and on time. What else to look for in a potential greeter?
And, how to make the change? Should I just contact possible candidates and tell them they would make a good greeter/manager and see if they are interested? Or send a notice to all residents asking people interested in the position to contact me? Or?
Any and all suggestions/ideas on this will be most appreciated.
Also, what are the possible duties of a greeter? Duties must be quite varied depending on the owner’s proximity, abilities, time availability, etc. What are other owners doing in this regard?
