About Big Island West Chapter of NARPM®

Aloha and welcome to NARPM's BIG ISLAND WEST Chapter of Residential Property Managers.

Our membership represents a group of residential property managers who strive for excellence in their field by keeping up to date on current legislative issues, landlord-tenant code and fair housing laws.  We follow NARPM's Code of Ethics to ensure the best possible client relations and professionalism.

Previously known as "Big Island Chapter", we were the first NARPM chapter in the state, with the Oahu chapters following suit.  Over time,  the Hawaii Island chapter realized the need for another chapter so that both East and West Hawaii would be best represented.

Members of NARPM are individuals who are engaged in the management of residential properties as agents for others, licensed in those states that require licensing.  By being a member of NARPM it shows those individuals are serious about there profession and continuing to educate themselves through this organization. 

Vendors that are affiliated with NARPM are selected based on their professionalism and credentials to serve the needs of maintaining residential rental properties.
