Well, not exactly. It's still me, but I have an official new title now, Andrea Mayer, RMP®. Through NARPM® I have earned my Residential Management Professional designation. And I'm thrilled to share the news.
NARPM® designations are earned with a combination of property management experience, industry education and service to the association through volunteer activities.
The idea behind the designation, is to set myself apart from other property managers. The education and experience I have received in earning my RMP® adds a credibility and confidence that is directly passed on to my clients and customers.
In order to earn this distinguished title, quite a bit was expected of me. My first item of business was to give back to our local chapter. I served on the Board of the SW Idaho Chapter of NARPM®, for two years, and I will be gearing up for my third year, come January 2015.
I was also required to have 100 unit years of experience, complete 18 hours of course work, attend Regional Conventions, earn elective points, as well as have an article published in the NARPM® magazine, The Residential Resource. Since I am a former bill collector and quality assurance agent, my article was on Using Good Phone Etiquette and handling difficult calls. It took a lot of hard work and time to accomplish this goal, but I am very proud to be forging ahead in NARPM® and making a name for myself and my company.
