POSITION SUMMARY: Metro's Parks and Nature Department manages over 17,000 acres of voter-protected land across the greater Portland region, from expansive forests and sensitive wetlands to beloved nature parks. Our real estate team plays a key role in the conservation of these special places, and we are looking for a Real Estate Analyst who can use their property management and business analysis experience to help us manage the real property interests in our natural areas. In this role you'll develop, organize and coordinate complex real estate management functions for the Conservation Program within the department. A primary duty will be to manage the department's residential lease portfolio consisting of single family homes, including contract administration, portfolio analysis, asset management oversight and serving as the main point of contact for the third party management company. You'll work with colleagues on the real estate team to analyze the portfolio and manage the assets, including implementation of a preventative maintenance program. We hope with your extensive experience you will successfully manage the review of all permanent easements, leases or right of way requests as well as development, negotiation and ongoing management of intergovernmental agreement contracts. We'll also look to you to analyze, make recommendations, and implement projects related to managing rental properties or other real property interests. Your experience in finance and/or real estate and your ability to use a racial equity lens will be an asset as we look to you to help improve our processes and procedures as our program grows. You will be part of a talented real estate and property management team that has varied roles for each member, so you'll often be bridging the information gap between the two focuses of this team. You'll need to have good judgment and be self-motivated with the ability to juggle and prioritize multiple projects at once. Someone with a positive attitude who is detailed oriented, process focused, and values continuous learning will thrive in this role.
At Metro, we hire a workforce representative of the communities we serve, understanding that a diverse workforce strengthens our organization. We value diversity and support a positive and welcoming environment where all of our employees can thrive.
