“Call me a skeptic. Call me a complete cynic. To say I was convinced there was no true benefit to joining an association or networking group is putting things mildly. I knew how to be a great property manager, but I wasn’t sure how to grow my firm. I tried many different networking groups, and they were all disappointing. They all left me feeling isolated and unwelcome. Then, I joined NARPM®.

What I can tell you is that the national leadership team I met were MIND BLOWING. They saw the real me – someone who shared a common appreciation and love for the property management industry. Best of all, they were ready and excited to do anything to help me succeed. NARPM® is a one-for-all and all-for-one team of talented and aspirational individuals who take the success of the individual and industry to heart. They want to give the entire property management industry the best reputation it could have.

But that’s not all. The education has helped me TRIPLE my revenues by sharing ideas and avenues of revenue I’d never considered. In less than a year, my company has grown so much financially and culturally. I owe that all to the support I received and continue to get from NARPM® members. In short, I would say to any property manager new to the industry or even if you’re like me and been around for a while, JOIN NARPM®, and use it!
