Credentials and Designations
The National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM), the trade association for our industry, offers designations to property managers who work, serve and take courses to learn the intricacies of our business. These designations help the public to identify the knowledge and experience of the managers in the marketplace. Crown has a unique position in the market because we have all the designations offered by NARPM, including the coveted Certified Residential Management Company (CRMC) awarded to only 31 companies in the nation as well as the qualifying broker having a Master Property Manager (MPM) designation.
Robert and Betty Locke began to build the business that would become Crown Management in their basement in 1978. They started in the basement of their home in 1978 to manage the houses they were buying for investment. When they ran out of capital they started finding properties for investors and heard ?I?ll buy it if you manage it for me?. Crown was the response to that need. To date the Lockes have bought over 200 houses for their own account, have located over 1,000 houses for other investors and grown Crown into a major player in the Atlanta marketplace. Crown has acquired 11 other management companies (including one with 225 properties) and knows what happens ?under the hood? of management companies. We have been training and coaching property managers for over 20 years. Robert has spoken at real estate workshops and conventions throughout the United States and other countries.
