Commonwealth Commercial has earned the Accredited Management Organization (AMO®) designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®. Currently there are only 535 management companies in the United States and Canada that have achieved the AMO® designation.

The AMO® accreditation is the only one in the industry that recognizes excellence among real estate management firms. Firms that earn it must demonstrate the highest standards in professional service, financial stability and accountability, and have a CERTIFIED PROPERTY MANAGER ® (CPM®) directing and supervising the real estate management team. In addition, AMO® firms must abide by the rigorous AMO® Code of Professional Ethics that is strictly enforced by the Institute.

Commonwealth Commercial’s Mark Claud, CPM®, serves as president of the firm, which oversees management of 163 properties, totaling 13 million square feet across the Southeast.

“We are thrilled to have earned this important national achievement. It is a true testament to the value and dedication our entire team puts forward in providing outstanding property management to our clients.”
