Welcome to IREM® Western Pennsylvania Chapter

IREM is an international force of 20,000 individuals united to advance the profession of real estate management.  Through training, professional development, and collaboration, IREM supports our members and others in the industry through every stage of their career.

We believe in our people, and we provide the tools they need to succeed.  We open doors, we forge connections, and we help show the way forward.  Backed by the power that comes from being an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, we add value to our members, who in turn add value to their teams, their workplaces, and the properties in their commercial and residential portfolios.

Our memberships empower college students, young professionals, and industry veterans who are committed to career advancement.  Earning our credentials, including the CPM®, ARM®, ACoM, and AMO®, demonstrates a commitment to, and a passion for, good management.  These credentials, along with our courses and array of resources, all exist with one goal in mind - to make a difference in the careers of those who manage.
