Awarded by the Institute of Real Estate Management, research shows that owners and investors place the highest value on the CPM designation compared to all other credentials in the industry.
With years of experience and comprehensive management expertise, a Certified Property Manager (CPM) can enhance the value of your real estate assets and make the most of your portfolio.
A Certified Property Manager can:
Offer proven expertise
Experience is one of the defining qualities of a CPM. Every CPM must display proficiency in the core areas of real estate management, meet minimum portfolio requirements and pass a rigorous certification exam. Collectively, CPM professionals manage over $848.2 billion in real estate assets, including 11.1 million residential units and 6.5 billion net square feet of commercial space.
Troubleshoot problems efficiently
A CPM has the ability to resolve complex issues and unforeseen obstacles quickly and efficiently. If a tenant crisis or a series of operational setbacks should suddenly arise, you can rely on a CPM to provide immediate solutions.
Oversee all aspects of operations
When you hire a CPM, you hire a versatile specialist. A CPM is trained to handle the full range of real estate management tasks, with skills covering the financial, legal, social, economic, and physical areas essential to property performance. Most CPM professionals manage mixed portfolios, including all types of office, retail, and multifamily properties.
Compete successfully in your market
Whether your real estate investments are in one city or across the world, a CPM knows how to position your properties in the local markets. For insight on other real estate markets, a CPM can tap into a network of nearly 8,800 CPM professionals worldwide.
Communicate with ease
A CPM is a seasoned professional with solid communication skills. From one-on-one interaction with residents or tenants to boardroom meetings regarding Profit & Loss statements, a CPM can interact skillfully with a wide array of audiences.
Help you maximize returns
Hiring a CPM means that you have someone who can do more than building maintenance. CPM professionals are trained to streamline operations and take your ROI to new levels.
Protect your investment
A CPM must abide by the most stringent code of ethics in the industry – or risk losing the designation. The code is strictly enforced by IREM and requires the use of utmost care in managing your portfolio. You can trust a CPM to manage your investments with unquestionable integrity.
