IREM Develops Best
Practices for Real Estate
IREM has developed a set of best practices for property
management companies and published them in a document titled, Best Practices: Real Estate Management
Developed by the IREM Industry Standards Advisory
Board, the 52 best practice statements provide a frame-
work for delivering professional real estate management
services for executives of companies managing proper-
ties for others. The best practices are organized into four
• The management company— 15 best practice
• Client relations— 10 best practice statements
• Management of the property— 21 best practice
• Tenant/resident relations— 6 best practice statements
In developing these best practices, IREM obtained input
from various stakeholders, including the senior executives of firms nationwide that have earned the AMO®
accreditation. IREM Members can download a free digital version of Best Practices: Real Estate Management
Services at www.irem.org/bpdigital.
