About Los Angeles Chapter of NARPM®

NARPM® is a national association of licensed real estate professionals who know first-hand the unique problems and challenges of managing single-family and small residential properties. They promote a high standard in business ethics, professionalism and fair housing practice.  This association also certifies its members in the standards and practices of the residential property management industry and promotes continuing professional education.

About Los Angeles Chapter of NARPM®

Los Angeles NARPM started as a gleam in Bonnye Sirk’s eye when she encouraged one of her Property Managers, Neena Dorigo, to start laying the groundwork to start up a chapter. In Spring of 2013 Neena emailed and called all Narpm members in the area and got a positive response from Wayne Hartigan.  The two of them met at a coffee shop in the summer of 2013 and made lists and plans and more lists of how to launch a chapter.  Wayne returned from the next Narpm Broker/Owner’s retreat with great news—he had found another member, Vanessa Ginn, who would also be willing to be on the board.  Neena asked her colleague, Kimberly Fairbrother, to join the board and the 4 members met for their first meeting in December of 2013.

By January of 2014 LA NARPM was a chapter in formation and off and running.  They held monthly meetings on a variety of topics, the most popular of 2014 being bedbugs, went through some growing pains regarding venue options and held a very successful fall seminar with Melissa Prandi together with the Long Beach and Inland Empire chapters.

Neena attributes the chapter’s success to relevant timely topics and personal contact by board members to prospective and new members.
