Beth Smith Awarded Honor From IREM, Sacramento Valley Chapter

March 22, 2017

San Diego-based Sunrise Management – which has specialized in the management of multifamily properties since 1978 – recently announced that Beth Smith, the company’s regional real estate manager for Sacramento, has been named 2016 “Certified Property Manager of the Year” (CPM) by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®), Sacramento Valley chapter.

IREM’s CPM Certification is considered to be the real estate industry’s highest management credential, and the Sacramento chapter each year selects a CPM of the Year.

“We’re extremely thrilled for Beth because this achievement does not come easily and there is fierce competition in Sacramento area,” said Sunrise CEO/president Joe Greenblatt. “Her dedication to clients, peers and the industry is one of the many of the reasons she has been awarded this honor.”

Smith, who is based in Sacramento, is also IREM Sacramento’s vice president of membership and has been with Sunrise since 2013. She handles all day-to-day operations for the firm’s Sacramento offices, including recruiting, team member training, budget preparation, financial management, and leasing oversight for Sunrise’s Northern California portfolio.

A 25-year veteran of the multifamily industry, she was previously operations manager with Woodside Management Group, where she oversaw the operations of 11 multifamily communities encompassing more than 1,500 units throughout central and southern California. A longtime member of the Institute for Real Estate Management (IREM), she earned her CPM designation in 2007.
