First Rate Property Management demands that our staff provide owners and tenants with prompt and satisfactory service. We chose to name the company First Rate Property Management because we demand that our agents and contractors strive to provide First Rate service. If you sign a management agreement with us and you ever have a question or concern, you can contact any member of our staff, to include the President, at any time!

Melissa Sharone, First Rate Property Management's President, holds the designations of Master Property Manager (MPM®) and Residential Management Professional (RMP®). Melissa has served as the SW Idaho Chapter NARPM President in 2018, the National Professional Development Chair in 2019 and the NW RVP in 2020-2021. Currently she serves on the National Board of Directors as the NARPM Treasurer. She also serves on the advisory council for the Better Business Bureau and enjoys connecting with other business owners in our community.
Jim Sharone, First Rate’s Vice President, received his RMP® designation in February of 2019 and is working towards his MPM designation. He has served on the board of the SW Idaho Chapter of NARPM and was the Chapter's President in 2021.
In 2010, First Rate Property Management became the second company in all of Idaho to become a Certified Residential Management Company. The criteria to earn this NARPM designation are vast and also included a two-day internal audit.
Idaho currently is one of the few states that has no licensing requirements or any governing body overseeing property managers. Therefore, First Rate Property Management is dedicated to the National Association of Residential Property Managers and learning from states who do have licensing and procedural requirements.
The NARPM designations have stringent requirements for education, experience and service. It takes many years of hard work to meet these requirements! The FRPM staff attend NARPM Conventions and NARPM Conferences to seek additional education and maintain recognition as one of the most knowledgeable property management companies within our market!
