Why it is important that your property manager be involved in NARPM?
The same reason that you want educators who teach children to have a degree from recognized universities, attend inservice training and be current on the best uses of technology to effectively facilitate learning.
As a working mother, finding the best daycare was a top priority for me when I began the childcare search for my daughter.
Oftentimes when we recount visiting thirteen childcare facilities and calling another seven in the Houston area, people laugh at the exhaustive search.
This should be the same mindset when you begin the search for a real estate professional. Especially when it comes to the day to day management of your investment property.
At Evan Howell properties, we specialize in real estate transactions and property management. As a small family owned business, our reputation means everything to us. We pride ourselves in voluntarily participation in webinars and educational classes to further our knowledge and better serve our clients!
