John Braun, SMA, LEED AP O + M - Stiles Property Management

"I earned my SMA designation in 1989 when I was 25 years old. I was a building engineer working in downtown Miami at the time. Having the SMA helped advance my career quickly to bigger properties and more responsibility.

I truly feel that the SMA designation puts you ahead of the group in our field and it’s something that I look for today when I’m hiring engineers for Stiles.Tangible benefits: Better job opportunities, More money, You get to wear the big boy pants. Knowledge is King!"  

Bunnie Willis, RPA, New Boston Fund

"I earned my RPA in 1998 after having been in the business for a few short years. I found (and still do) this designation to be invaluable as I made my way through the property management field. I later went on to earn my Bachelor of Science Degree in Real Estate but found the information and knowledge learned through the RPA classes was much more beneficial to what I actually did on a day-to-day basis.

I started as an Admin, moving into an Assistant Property Manager role to Property Manager to my current position as a Regional Manager overseeing a portfolio of over $1M SF. I would recommend anyone contemplating entering the field or already in the field to pursue this designation. I am very proud to add RPA after my name." 

Michele Pellico, RPA, FMA/SREM - CBRE

I earned my RPA in 2003 and my FMA in 2005. Both designations I believe opened doors that I would not have had opened otherwise. In 2005, after working as an Administrator I was offered a Property Manager position at a competing company. The designations will definitely help in achieving your goals in commercial property management."
