The cover letter example below is that of a property manager who thrives in a diverse and fast-paced management environment. His strengths include client relations, management operations and creative problem-solving. The second paragraph of the cover letter alludes to the fact that he is the owner of his own property management company, although he is now seeking to go back on payroll. If there is one weakness about this cover letter is that it does not refer to specific accomplishments. For someone who boasts having done so much, there should be mention of at least few concrete things.

Dear Ms Domen,
Re: Assistant Property Manager position
I am writing to apply for the position of Assistant Property Manager at Diamond Properties, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly organised and motivated professional with a Diploma of Property Services (Real Estate) and two years of experience as an Administrative Officer at Smart Move Real Estate, a boutique agency in the western suburbs of Sydney.
In my present role, I assist the property management team with all their administrative needs and I am therefore very familiar with what property management entails. My duties include writing notices for landlords and tenants, addressing client enquiries and issues with proper documentation, assisting with the composition and filing of lease agreements and other documents, creating and distributing agency marketing material, and various other general administrative duties.
In 2011 I was responsible for updating and reorganising the agency’s customer contact log. I did this off my own initiative, and it greatly bolstered the efficiency of office operations by enabling a more streamlined approach to maintaining both property and client information.
Both this role and my former role as a receptionist have given me very strong communication and customer service skills. I am professionally presented, have strong computer skills (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), and am a fast learner when it comes to learning new software and systems. I hold my Certificate of Registration, and have my own transport.
I am an enthusiastic and motivated worker eager to pursue a career in property management. I find the field an exciting one, and I believe that as Assistant Property Manager I could greatly contribute to the Diamond Properties team while developing my own skills.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
