For over 60 years, IREM® has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to developing and maintaining standards of excellence and professional ethics in the field of real estate management. IREM® is the only professional association dedicated to serving the needs of all real estate management professionals – novices and seasoned experts; site, property, and asset managers; managers of office buildings, shopping centers, apartments, condominiums, and mobile home parks.
IREM’s mission is to educate, certify and promote the professional competence of its members in order to meet the needs of those who utilize their services. IREM® provides the extra edge real estate management professionals need to distinguish themselves from the competition.
IREM’s membership is diverse and includes nearly 10,000 CPM® (Certified Property Manager) members and over 3,500 ARM® (Accredited Residential Manager) members in the United States, Canada, and abroad. IREM® counts among its membership officers, owners, partners, and department heads of property management firms, banks, savings and loans, and other major employers.
IREM® has 89 chapters and 63 ARM® committees nationwide that combine to form a network of unparalleled excellence.
