Did you know we are AMO certified? Here’s what that means for you.
AMO accreditation, or Accredited Management Organization® accreditation is a high bar mark of excellence awarded to real estate management firms. To receive this prestigious recognition, a firm must exceed industry standards in professionalism, financial performance and ethics established and enforced by The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM). Curry Real Estate Services is proud to be one of only 500 firms out of more than 10,000 eligible firms in the United States and Canada to hold this designation. But what does this mean for our renters, owners and investors?
To qualify for AMO accreditation, a firm must be engaged in real estate management for at least three years and complete specific classes, ensuring that AMO firms are the most knowledgeable about local markets and property needs. In addition, AMO firms benefit from a network that connects them to fellow professionals locally, nationally, internationally and virtually – all willing to exchange best practices and ideas with fellow members. The three-year reaccreditation requirement ensures that a firm continually maintains the necessary education to satisfy membership standards.
All AMO accredited firms are required to have at least one certified property manager (CPM) responsible for real estate management activities. Only individuals who complete rigorous courses, who have met experience requirements and who adhere to a code of ethics achieve this CPM designation. Curry currently has seven employees who are CPM members.
To ensure that a client’s assets are protected, all AMO firms must maintain a superior level of insurance coverages and are responsible for following “The Minimum Standard and Code Ethics for the AMO” which ensures that a firm is following all procedures to the highest standard.
Holding AMO accreditation reinforces the values that we have held since 1924: experience, responsiveness and connectedness. Our 20-, 30- and 40-year career professionals have deep knowledge and are invested in the community. While this mark may take years to attain, we know the value in providing our clients the best service. As a family-owned firm, we treat your family like we treat ours in providing the quality, service and experience you can trust.
