2021 REME Awards

2020 Real Estate Management Excellence Awards

2021 Real Estate Management Excellence Awards

The REME Awards are a celebration of the essential work that real estate managers and firms do each and every day – managing through crisis and uncertainty to make a difference in the lives of their tenants and community.

Individuals and companies can share stories of the great things they’ve been able to do, challenges they’ve overcome during the pandemic, how they’ve uplifted each other, and continue to work hard to provide for the tenants, residents, owners, investors they serve.

This year, we’ve added two new award categories, giving you or your firm the opportunity to be recognized for the hard work you’ve done and continue to do.

We see you. Now let others see you!

Previous submitters are also encouraged to submit again this year for a chance to win.

Submissions and nominations are being accepted now through June 25, 2021.

Finalists will be contacted in August. Winners will be announced in person on stage during the 2021 IREM® Global Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 14. You do not need to be present to win.

Finalists and winners will be able to network with other IREM members and industry professionals at the Global Summit.
