As a local company with offices in Portland and Eugene, we do more than business here. We live here. That’s why we sponsor events and organizations that help the community, like Oregon Food Bank, Northwest Pilot Project and Camp Rosenbaum. We also participate in Rebuild Together to help local homeowners in need, doing anything from demo to installations. We’re board members of key industry associations, including Affordable Housing Management Association, Institute of Real Estate Management, and Multifamily NW in Portland and the southern Willamette Valley.
IPM also maintains MFNW Board presence with members serving on the Government Affairs Committee. This group stays abreast of all legal and political matters, focusing on current and proposed policy/law changes that affect professional practices in our industry. Ongoing efforts to collaborate with policy makers and maintain connection on issues impacting our management practices and, ultimately, our client’s real estate assets, distinguishes our services from our competitors. Our membership in all of these organizations enhances our knowledge of both our industry and the community we live in and serve.
As a company and as individual employees, we contribute to and serve the community at large as well as build strong communities within our management portfolio.
Within the IPM portfolio–particularly the income-restricted buildings–we encourage managers and on-site employees to work with organizations to meet the needs of struggling residents. Residents in our Single Room Occupancy (SRO) buildings, for instance, receive holiday meals, food bank assistance, a clothing bank, and access to an education coordinator who specializes in matching residents with community organizations. Many employees of IPM have been recognized by these organizations for their efforts.
