MPM (Master Property Manager) Designation

September 13th, 2017 12:14 PM by Cookie Hooper

The MPM is the highest designation an individual can earn through NARPM (National Association of Residential Property Managers).  It takes a major time commitment and a minimum of 5 years to earn.  

The requirements to become a Master Property Manager include

  • 500 unit years of experience

  • Letters of recommendation from four other Professional Designees

  • Letters of recommendation from six Clients

  • 42 hours of designation coursework

  • Participation in 3 national conferences

  • And other work.  


In my case,

  • I served as President-Elect

  • President

  • And Past President of the Denver chapter

  • I served as Conference Chair for our state conference

  • I served as the Special Event Chair for three years

  • I participated in two additional conferences

  • And 3 additional leadership trainings

  • I received 60 additional class hours of study

  • Taught classes at state conferences

  • Had an article published in the Residential Resource magazine

  • And more…


After five years of study, service, participation, teaching, mentoring, experience, and being judged by a Review Board, I am able to finally, proudly, wear the badge of Master Property Manager.  While running my property management company and working in it approximately 60 hours per week, this work has been done outside of those hours.  It was a massive undertaking, which could not have been won without the support of my great team at True Blue Realty.

Being a Master Property Manager places me in the top 5% of property managers, world-wide!  It shows that I have the experience and knowledge to serve my Investors and my Tenants to the highest degree possible.  It shows that my Clients are working with a proven professional who can handle every challenge that this crazy industry throws out there each and every day.  It shows mastery in my field.  

I am exceedingly proud of this designation.  You can also be proud that you have chosen to work with a property manager who is in the top-tier of management professionals.  Hooray for me, and hooray for you!
