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.

Chapter President

Ed Hochman
Ed Hochman

Ed Hochman's career in property management started in 2003 when he took a job with AIMCO at a 1279-unit property in Woodland Hills, CA. His primary duties were to supervise the maintenance team, and lease apartments. He established and managed a "preventative maintenance program" and was ranked top leasing consultant, achieving a score of 100 in a blind customer service satisfaction survey.

In 2004, Ed was promoted to the position of assistant manager of a 279 unit, class "A", mixed use property in Los Angeles, CA where he managed the leasing team, coordinated resident relations, resolved resident complaints, and administered accounts receivables and payables.

A year later, Ed accepted an offer from Advanced Management and took the position of property manager on a 206 unit property in Lakewood, CA. During his time there, Ed helped coordinate complete rehabilitation of the property, and was awarded the title "Manager of the year" in both 2006 and 2009.

He was able to maintain very high occupancy levels while at the same time increasing revenues. He initiated a profitable recycling program which was then duplicated companywide. As a result of his success in managing the property, Ed was then hand-picked by the owners to help revive another property they own.

Upon completing his graduate studies in 2010, Ed left Advanced Management and took a job as a Regional Manager for Norman Jacobson Property Management where he successfully managed 17 properties in Southern California.

In December 2012, Ed received his broker's license and decided to venture out on his own. In 2013, he founded Hawk Management.

Ed graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California Irvine and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Loyola Marymount University.
