Compass Commercial Real Estate Services Receives Prestigious AMO®Accreditation

Only Property Management Firm in Central Oregon to Hold Elite Real Estate Management Recognition

AMO logoCompass Commercial Asset & Property Management recently received the prestigious Accredited Management Organization® (AMO®) accreditation from the Institute for Real Estate Management® (IREM®) for its excellence in property management services.

John Keba, CPM®, ARM®, Vice President of Property Management, spearheaded the accreditation process on behalf of Compass Commercial Real Estate Services. Keba oversees the firm’s management of over 1.6 million square feet of office, medical, commercial, retail and research/biotechnology properties throughout Central Oregon.

“Our organization is extremely honored to have earned this prestigious accreditation,” said Keba. “The highly recognized industry-wide AMO® certification goes a long way in elevating the level of standards our existing and future clients can expect in working with our organization. Achieving the AMO® firm status assures our clients that their assets are receiving the highest level of professional management service.”

AMO® accreditation is the only award given to real estate management firms that demonstrate to clients their ability to go beyond industry standards by proactively working to set them. This includes exhibiting a high level of performance, experience, stability and financial accountability while having at least one Certified Property Manager® (CPM®) in an executive position. Compass Commercial Real Estate Services counts three CPM® designees among its Asset & Property Management team.

IREM® maintains the stringent AMO® accreditation standards by reviewing accredited firms every three years. In addition, AMO® firms must abide by a strictly enforced rigorous Code of Professional Ethics. The AMO® accreditation places Compass Commercial Real Estate Services amongst an elite group of 28 Oregon based property management companies — out of more than 270 IREM® member firms in the state and only 550 elite firms worldwide with such a distinction.

“We are very proud of this designation and grateful to John for his diligent work in meeting and exceeding the AMO® standards,” said     Howard Friedman, CCIM, president of Compass Commercial Real Estate Services. “At Compass Commercial, we do everything in our power to ensure we are providing the best service to our clients and in property management this includes doing everything possible for the benefit of the property owners we work with and the tenants who entrust their businesses to us. This designation shows we have been successful in meeting the industry’s most stringent standards and it is gratifying to all of us to enjoy this recognition.”
