At Gaughan, we prioritize in empowering our employees through educational opportunities for their personal and professional growth, which results in our company being able to better serve our customers.
Recently, Rozeanna Berg our Director of Commercial Accounts & Facility Services attended a week long ASM track consisting of Financial Analysis courses, where you learn about the importance of Asset Management and Loan Analysis.
Certified Property Manager (CPM)
The Certified Property Manager (CPM) designation, administered by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), is a professional real estate designation recognized by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The course schedule for this designation:
- Ethics for the Real Estate Manager
- Budgeting, Cash Flow, and Reporting for Investment Real Estate
- Marketing and Leasing Strategies for retail, multifamily or office buildings
- Leading a Winning Property Management Team
- Managing Maintenance Operations and Property Risk
- Financing and Loan Analysis for Investment Real Estate
- Performance and Valuation of Investment Real Estate
- Asset Analysis of Investment Real Estate
Due to the difficulty of the course load, studying to become a CPM has its challenges. However, the information and knowledge gained from the courses sets you apart from other professionals in the industry.
Rozeanna’s dedication to providing stellar service to our customers, inspired her to enroll in the fast track curriculum to obtain her CPM. She has already completed 9/10 courses necessary for this achievement and has began passing on the educational value to the clients we serve. We will track her progress along the way to reaching this goal.
In addition to Rozeanna being on the cusp of obtaining her CPM, Kelley Lemon, our Director of Multifamily & Facility Services and our Senior Residential Property Manager, MJ Fleming, have just obtained their Multifamily Housing Manager (MHM) designation administered by Quadel.
Multifamily Housing Manager (MHM)
The MHM certification provides staff with the knowledge and skills needed to ensure your multifamily housing properties are in regulatory and occupancy compliance with all HUD program requirements.
Our Multifamily Management team manages a significant portfolio of Class A to C Market Rate and Subsidized assets in the Twin Cities market.

On Friday, May 4, 2018, Gaughan Brokerage Senior Associate, Tom Opsahl, participated on a panel for the 14th annual Land Development Conference. This conference is hosted yearly by the Minnesota Real Estate Journal at the Golden Valley Country Club.
The topic of Opsahl’s panel was “Commercial Land Development Forecast for 2018 and Beyond.” The panelists discussed the current market conditions, development project updates for 2018, challenges with land development, financing for development projects, and the future of development.
The other four sessions at this year’s conference were “Municipalities: Your Partner for Land Development and What You Need to Know,” “Key Issues to Consider When Structuring Real Estate Joint Ventures,” “Frontiers: Lessons in Greenfield Development,” and “Residential Land Update and Opportunities.” We look forward to next year’s conference and the updates that we will be hearing based on the sessions this year!
