The company also manages 722,000 square feet of commercial space. The portfolio includes communities that range from high rises to townhouses, luxury oceanfront communities to properties managed for community development corporations. The commercial properties under management range from office, to retail, to industrial, to mixed use. The company has a history of success in managing properties at all stages of the property life cycle from those under development to those that are well-established. Headquartered in Boston, First Realty also has offices in Worcester and Providence. The firm first earned its AMO® designation in 1982.

What AMO® means

IREM®, a leading national association for the training and credentialing of real estate professionals, created the AMO® designation in 1945 as a method to establish and maintain public confidence in the honesty, integrity, professionalism, and overall abilities of property management firms. Included among 11 areas of focus is service to clients, contractual duties, accounting, ability to audit financial and business records, overall fiduciary responsibility, and compliance with laws and regulations.

Less than 2 percent of firms nationwide has achieved AMO® status

According to IREM®’s national headquarters in Chicago, less than 2 percent of the 48,000 management firms doing business across the country, have earned the AMO® designation. The Boston chapter that presented First Realty with this award is the largest of 90 regional IREM® chapters across the country.

IREM®’s AMO® standards are a good fit for First Realty

“We are grateful to those within the IREM® Boston Chapter who nominated us for this award,” Cevetello said. “It has special meaning and it is peer validation of the work we do, an achievement for which we as a company are proud.”
