Owners, investors, and employers know that if you hold an IREM Certified Property Manager® designation, you have the knowledge to maximize the value of any property, in any asset class. Being a CPM, you’ll know more, do more, and earn more, anywhere you manage.

The AMO® sets the standard in property management firm excellence. IREM® introduced the AMO® (Accredited Management Organization®) accreditation for property management firms in 1945, setting an uncommon standard for firm conduct and client service that is still unmatched today. Only 560 firms currently hold the prestigious accreditation – making them truly sought after by property owners and investors worldwide.

The IREM Certified Sustainable Property certification assesses the sustainability performance of existing properties in five categories – energy, water, health, recycling, and purchasing. IREM CSP certification is attainable, affordable, meaningful, and available to five property types—office properties, medical office buildings, multifamily communities, senior housing communities, and shopping centers – and allows properties to demonstrate green performance to stakeholders. 1915 Plaza Drive in Eagan, a suburb of Minneapolis, has become an IREM® Certified Sustainable Property. The office building is the first IREM CSP in Minnesota. 1915 Plaza Drive is owned by DGA Real Estate and managed by Clarity Commercial.

The term REALTOR® has one, and only one, meaning: REALTOR® is a federally registered collective membership mark which identifies a real estate professional who is member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

CCAM is a professional designation course for both managers of common interest communities and board members of homeowner associations. CCAM is taught by professionals who are experts in Minnesota law and maintenance issues specific to Minnesota’s climate.
