The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) announced that Freeman Webb Company has been awarded its 2017 Accredited Management Organization (AMO) of the Year in its Real Estate Management Excellence (REME) program.
This international award is given to the company that best exemplifies the organization’s goals of providing professional, ethical real estate management services. IREM expects their accredited organizations to provide innovative, leading-edge business practices and initiatives, to share successful initiatives and to foster further innovation within the real estate management industry, both locally and globally. Chosen from a pool of more than 1,100 AMOs across the globe, Freeman Webb Company was selected as the company that best exemplified IREM’s exacting principles, and is the first in Tennessee to win this award.
Freeman Webb Company is a full-service real estate investment and management firm that specializes in the acquisition, management and rehabilitation of multi-family residential and commercial properties.
Bill Freeman and Jimmy Webb founded Freeman Webb Company in 1979 with one employee. Almost four decades later, Freeman Webb Company has a nearly $2 billion portfolio valuation and over 450 employees, including in-house legal, marketing and construction divisions that allows the firm to best serve investors, clients and residents.
“We are so proud to have been selected as IREM’s AMO of the year. Winning our industry’s version of the Super Bowl is an honor,” stated Co-Founder and President Jimmy Webb. “We are grateful for the recognition of our hard work and dedication to excellence by everyone here at Freeman Webb Company.”
Freeman Webb Company has been a staunch advocate for IREM through the years, through encouraging its em- ployees to obtain industry designations and professional accreditation.
“We encourage and support our employees to pursue these important professional designations and to actively participate in industry associations,” commented co-founder and Chairman Bill Freeman.
