Julie Tollifson and Lacey Hofman who are both Team Leaders at First Rate are working on their NARPM designations and are on track to complete them this year.
In 2010, First Rate Property Management became only 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. Tony and his staff travel and attend NARPM Conventions and NARPM Conferences to seek additional education and to learn from other states that do have licensing and regulations over property managers.
