Why Should You Hire a Certified Property Manager® (CPM®) to Manage Your Real Estate Investments?

The CPM® designation is awarded to real estate managers, through the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, who have met the Institute’s stringent requirements of professional education, examination and experience with emphasis on asset management, property value management, risk management, maintenance management, marketing, leasing, ethics, accounting, legal, social and economic influences as well as human resources all essential to property performance and effective property management.

You and own property for one reason – as a financial investment.

With years of experience and comprehensive management expertise, a CPM can enhance the value of your real estate assets and make the most of your portfolio with professionalism and integrity, knowledge of the local market and a strong reputation. Entrust your investments to the best in the business.

Don’t leave your investment in the hands of just anyone – trust an expert and hire a Certified Property Manager®.

Experience, education and ethics. These are the values at the core of every CPM Member. Through rigorous requirements, including a comprehensive education program, exams, experience and adherence to the strictly enforced IREM Code of Professional Ethics, CPM Members must prove that they are the best of the best.

CPM® Members are trained to advance your goals and maximize your investments. Day in and day out, you’re challenged to make decisions to benefit and optimize your bottom line. Take the guess work out and hire a CPM® to handle your portfolio. A CPM® is trained to manage the fiscal health of your properties, with an emphasis on asset management and financial operations.

CPM® Members believe that good management matters. They understand that well-managed properties pay dividends in terms of value and in the quality of life for residents and tenants. The CPM® designation is an independent confirmation of expertise. Like CPA’s in the accounting world, and MBA’s in the business world, the CPM credential is a recognized mark of excellence.
