Become a Commercial Real Estate Intern at the Presidio in San Francisco and Take a Walk in the Park!
There are so many types of Commercial Real Estate Assets. Some commercial buildings are shiny and new, towering hundreds of feet tall in the heart of the city. Some projects are the size of multiple football fields spreading over acres of land far away in the suburbs. There are so many possibilities! Some commercial property managers may be exposed to these various types throughout their career. Knowledge of the operation of all these property types is valuable for a successful career.
RiverRock Real Estate Group (RREG), who by the way was named a CRE BEST PLACE TO WORK for 2021, would like to invite you to be a property management intern at a unique portfolio at the Presidio of San Francisco. The Presidio, initially established in 1776 as a Spanish Fort, now consists of over 2 million square feet of leased spaces that include Office, Retail, Industrial and Educational tenants. Buildings that once served as soldiers’ barracks, warehouses, Army Headquarters and airplane hangars are now museums, recreational facilities, offices and restaurants.
Over the course of eight weeks the property management intern will gain exposure to lease administration, finance for budgeting and reporting, building inspection and maintenance, tenant improvements, communications, tenant relations and many other facets of what is required for successful property management operation. The property management intern will also interact with the Asset Management, Leasing, Historic Compliance, Building Stewardship, Marketing and Special Events teams at the Presidio Trust.
The property management intern will work directly with the friendly and dynamic onsite RiverRock team including a Senior Portfolio Manager, Property Managers, Lease Administrator and Project Coordinators who will provide insights gained over the years on this project. The RiverRock Senior Corporate leadership team members will also be available providing exposure and insight to the very successful practices that have made RREG a leader in the industry!
Each year thousands of people come to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge, the Scenic Bay and hike the naturally beautiful trails ranging over the 1,500 acre Presidio. That’s the environment that the property management intern will enjoy every day!
RiverRock’s intern program is designed to introduce college students to the business of commercial property management. Over an 8-week period, by assisting property managers, construction managers, and accountants, the intern will develop an understanding of the life cycle of our business. This includes moving tenants in and out of buildings, understanding and administering leases, preparing space for occupancy (tenant improvement construction), capital project planning, preparing annual operating budgets and monthly reports, and hiring vendors and contractors for repairs and maintenance. Please note that approximately 35% of the intern's time will be spent in various NorCal RiverRock offices and the balance will be spent at the Presidio.
