Chapter 21 of the Colorado Real Estate Manual (produced by the Colorado Real Estate Commission and the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies) specifically mentions the National Association of Residential Property Managers ( NARPM ® ) as the organization that exists to assist property managers in the management of residential properties including single family homes, condos, and town-homes. It goes on to state that NARPM ® members benefit from networking opportunities, and referral services, as well as professional education courses and designations. The organization has thousands of members nationwide and the Denver Chapter is the 6th oldest chapter in nation.
Before selecting a property management or leasing company find out if the company is involved in the organization that is recommended by the Colorado Real Estate Commission, how long they have been a member, and what is their level of involvement.
