AppFolio announces the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM®) community has selected them as the 2010 Affiliate of the Year. Each year, NARPM® members are asked to vote for an Affiliate Member of the Year who has demonstrated the strongest commitment to educating the residential property management industry and this is the second consecutive year that AppFolio has won this award.
AppFolio regularly presents at association chapter meetings, regional events and most recently provided an educational session on Social Networking for Property Managers at the 2010 Convention and Tradeshow in Seattle. “Our members really appreciate that AppFolio supports our organization as a software vendor but more importantly as a partner to their business,” said Gail Phillips Executive Director, NARPM®. “To be recognized by our members for two years in a row really shows how much our community values the education provided by AppFolio.”
Many NARPM® members and leaders also use AppFolio’s web-based property management software to help them more easily market, manage and grow businesses. Features include the ability for residents to pay rent online, complete property management accounting and reporting, integrated online applications and vacancy posting.
“We are proud to receive this award for the second consecutive year”, said Brian Donahoo, AppFolio CEO. “Helping our customers succeed is the cornerstone of AppFolio’s success and we are all believers that education is the best way to connect with property managers. We are glad that the NARPM® members feel the same way.”
