    NEWTON and METHUEN: The Institute of Real Estate Management® (IREM®) Boston Metropolitan Chapter No. 4 is pleased to announce that Kosal Saren with Barkan Management Co. has earned the ARM® (Accredited Residential Manager®) designation.

    The residential property management certification teaches early-career real estate managers the core competencies to manage residential properties successfully.

    “It’s a pleasure to recognize Kosal for achieving the ARM designation,” said Melissa Fish-Crane, 2021 president of IREM Boston Metropolitan Chapter No. 4 and principal and COO of the Peabody Companies.  “To become an effective residential property manager, you need to know it all: budgeting, leasing, maintenance, risk management, resident relations and retention – all while being accessible to your residents around the clock. And that’s exactly what the ARM certification helps industry professionals, like Kosal, achieve, each and every day.”
