Mission, vision, and values

IREM advances the profession of real estate management.
Real estate management professionals are recognized as essential for the success of our communities, the people who use the properties, and the investors who own the assets.
Leadership: We believe that leadership is not just a position, it’s a mindset. It's listening, understanding, and helping others succeed. IREM members lead the way, ensuring a sustainable profession for future generations.
Collaboration: We believe there's strength in members. When members join together to learn, network, and give back, they not only move the profession forward, they move each other forward.  When one of us succeeds, we all succeed.
Integrity: We insist on uncompromising adherence to ethical standards. Our members do what's right, putting the interests of their clients, owners, tenants, and residents above their own.
Inclusion: We know our success depends on diversity. We're committed to understanding the perspectives of underrepresented groups and doing the work that's needed to include all voices.
Knowledge sharing: We hold ourselves accountable as knowledge experts with a responsibility to share all we know about property and asset management with each other. We advocate for continuous learning and sharing with peers, partners, and fellow organizations.
