How to Pick a Property Manager you can Trust

To trust or not to trust?

If you are interviewing property managers, how do you pick a property manager you can trust? There is one important question to ask. Are they a member of NARPM® (the National Association of Residential Property Managers)?

This week, the 31st Annual NARPM® Convention & Trade Show was right here in Phoenix, so this is a good week to write about NARPM®, and our connection to them.

A NARPM® member is sure to stand apart from other property managers and landlords. That’s because to earn a NARPM® designation, a property manager has to pass rigorous requirements. They need all the things you want:

  • Training
  • Experience
  • Recommendations
  • Community responsibility
  • Continuing education

They must continue to accrue these things in order to move up the NARPM® ladder to become fully certified.

Some of the things NARPM® property managers have are:

  • Access to numerous and (proper) educational opportunities.
  • Knowledge of important pending legislative items that may affect you.
  • Knowledge of rent values and vacancy factors for your area.
  • Expertise in creating rental applications. Consistent screening policies to meet legal obligations.
  • Expertise in performing thorough move-in and move-out property evaluations.
  • Relationships with reputable painters, electricians, roofers, chimney cleaners, carpenters, landscapers, furnace and appliance repairmen, and other maintenance professionals. (We call them vendors.)
  • Effective negotiation techniques with tenants, so they can handle difficult issues and enforce rental agreements.
  • The ability to recover NSF checks, evict tenants, and collect bad debts.
