  • Members must be engaged in the management of residential properties and licensed in those states that require licensing.
  • A Professional Member may also be an employee of a company, or employee of a property owner, or employee of an investor, who handles all aspects of residential property management. These individuals do not have to hold an active real estate license but must follow his/her specific state regulatory licensing law regarding performing the duties of a property management.
  • Members agree to abide by the professional and ethical standards of NARPM®.
  • Professional Members have also completed current NARPM® Code of Ethics training. This course MUST be completed within 90 days of membership application or membership will be inactivated.

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.
