The purpose of this paper is to assess the occupier satisfaction on management of commercial properties in Nigeria using Akure as the research site. Design/methodology/approach – Based on a total population of 160 and employing random sampling technique, 142 questionnaires were administered on the occupiers of shopping complexes along the major routes of the city namely Oba-Adesida and Oyemekun, out of which 98 were returned and found adequate for analysis. Data analysis were done using weighted mean score and paired t-test. Findings – The result revealed that there is significant difference between occupiers’ expected and actual satisfaction. The paper recommends a tenant-oriented management style for better performance. Originality/value – The most important contribution of the paper is to underline the need for pragmatic and tenant-oriented management as a means to achieving increased occupier satisfaction in commercial properties.
