Professional Membership

"I no longer feel as though I am feeling my way through a dark room. I know that I am part of a great support and networking group. This group is one of the most professional organizations I have even been involved in. The people are sincerely interested in me and my company - and in helping to make it successful."

Joining a professional organization demonstrates a high level of commitment to your own professional growth and to the field of residential property management. NARPM® is the nation’s only professional organization specifically for those who manage residential properties. NARPM® members are dedicated individuals who have made the decision to augment their knowledge, skills and income by becoming members.


  • Members must be engaged in the management of residential properties as an agent for others, licensed in those states that require licensing.
  • Members agree to abide by the professional and ethical standards of NARPM®.
  • To be a Professional Member, you must complete a NARPM® Code of Ethics Training Course. If this course is not completed, you will remain as an Associate Member.

Membership Cost

National professional membership for an individual costs $295 a year less a $50 new member discount, making the effective dues amount $245—which works out to be less than $20.42 a month. What other organizations do you belong to that are this affordable? A subscription to our news magazine, the Residential Resource, is included in the cost of your membership. You’ll start receiving this publication as soon as your application is processed. Take a look at the additional benefits you gain immediately with your NARPM® membership!
