Administrative Assistant & Analyst Job Opening

We are looking for a creative, and energetic self- starter to join our team at the corporate office located in Des Moines.  This will be a unique opportunity to be involved with Property Management and real estate development by assisting the COO directly along with being involved in all aspects of what we do. This includes advocating for affordable housing, pollical involvement, public relations, and philanthropy.

 Conlin Properties, Inc. was started in 1968 by Jim Conlin when he purchased 5 homes on the south side of Des Moines. This is an interesting story. Jim ran into a friend he had not seen in a while on the corner of McKinley and Fleur Dr, just down the street from the real estate offices where he was a new salesperson. Jim learned that his friend needed to sell the homes and 20 minutes later the shook on a deal.

Over the last 50 plus years, the company has expanded multiple times over and now specializes in affordable housing in and around central Iowa.  We currently have 65 of the best employees in the business, many of whom have been with us for decades. 

 We pride ourselves with community involvement with affordable housing, local charitable involvement and a deep commitment to political circles that revolve around pursuing justice.  We remain an active participant with current events that affect our business and to improve the livelihood of those we serve and have numerous ties to leaders in the community.

This person that we are looking for needs to have an interest in property management or some Real Estate experience or education would be a plus.

 This person should be well versed in Microsoft, Excel, and in general have an IT based approach to solutions along with the ability to understand, use and manage your own emotions in a positive way to help build the brand.

This person should be well versed in the ability to communicate to all demographic groups within the Conlin circle of business and get involved at the ground level and deal directly with our clients/business partners.

This person should have a core set of values of being trustworthy, conscientious, and have the ability to anticipate solutions and speak to them.

This person should be able to make sound decisions and be able to carry themselves in a casual business yet professional manner. At Conlin we pride ourselves on bringing value and humor to our business community.
