Caren McCourt


Caren McCourt CPM, GRI, TRLP, Owner-Broker of McCourt Property Management, LLC and McCourt Real Estate Services bought her first investment property when she was 22 years old. The cash flow helped her to put herself through the University of Texas of the Permian Basin where she earned a degree in Psychology in 1984. She entered property management in 1986, when most properties were in distress because of tax law changes. She specialized in taking over underperforming properties and turning them around, creating cash flow and increasing value for the owner. She earned the Texas Real Estate Broker’s license and the CPM, (Certified Property Manager) designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management. She managed and supervised properties in Midland-Odessa, Corpus Christi, San Antonio and Austin. She worked for Home Savings, Hall Financial Group, Balcor, Benson Investments and Sunridge. Ultimately, she supervised several thousand multi-family units and self-storage properties. Properties under her direction consistently achieved budgeted income and expenses, and routinely closed the books with zero delinquencies. Responsibilities included hiring, management training, dismissal, risk management and liability prevention, employee safety and marketing. During her tenure the number of worker’s compensation claims fell dramatically because there were very few work related injuries, and she reduced the number of nuisance and other lawsuits with vigilance, documentation, prevention, and strong management and
maintenance training programs. She began to buy single family real estate and has been actively involved in
acquiring and managing investment property since. She is a past president of the local Apartment Association, is active in the community and is intimately familiar with both the single family and multi-family market in the Permian Basin. Other affiliations include:
