The founder of the firm, Jeff Reingold, was born and raised in Portland. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1973.
In his final years of college, Jeff began his career in real estate management working as a property manager for a full-service firm headed by a well-respected Eugene broker. Jeff was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the property management department of this firm. Growing from that experience, Jeff obtained his Oregon broker’s license and established IPM Co. in 1974, initially serving the residential needs of property owners in the Eugene-Springfield area.
Aside from being involved in the operations of the firm, Jeff gained valuable experience from the perspective of the owner as he began to invest in commercial and residential property in the Eugene area. Additionally in 1979, Jeff completed the requirements needed to obtain his designation as a Certified Property Manager® from the Institute of Real Estate Management. In 1981, the firm met the strict requirements for designation by the Institute as an Accredited Management Organization - one of only 1,140 in the country.
The firm grew and in 1984, IPM Co. opened a second office in Portland, serving clients with properties in the greater Portland area. Aside from providing conventional property management services, the firm became well known for its ability to provide receivership services for its institutional clients. The firm has served as court appointed receiver in over 100 cases.
Serving as court appointed receiver provided the firm with experience in property “turnarounds” and dealing with the challenges present in receivership properties. This skill has attracted numerous investor clients in need of these abilities.
Jeff is a licensed real estate broker in both Oregon and Washington. Additionally, he has served on the board of the Multifamily Northwest as legislative chair and continues to be actively involved with the Association.
