The AMO accreditation is the only recognition of excellence given to real estate management firms. The requirements are now more relevant than ever to real estate managers, their clients, and the assets they manage. To earn the AMO accreditation, real estate management firms must now meet even more standards and abide by a new AMO Code of Professional Ethics - all based on Best Practices: Real Estate Management Service.

Why CPM?

  • Achieve higher standards. AMO Firms can demonstrate to investors and clients that they don’t just meet the industry standards... they set them.

  • Refine your business practices. The AMO best practices provide a framework for the professional delivery of real estate management services.

  • Earn new business. The AMO accreditation allows your firm to remain relevant by constantly focusing on your value proposition and being able to clearly articulate the value you bring to your clients.
