Khalid Keshavjee, director of operations with Calgary-based Amhurst Property Management, has been named an IREM next gen leader for 2021-22. He’ll join 18 peers in a fast-track program to attain IREM certified property management (CPM) accreditation, which offers supplemental leadership coaching and a network-building experience for promising real estate managers at similar points in their careers.
“With the real estate management profession thriving, the future for these dynamic and committed young professionals looks brighter than ever,” says IREM chief executive officer Denise Froemming. “I’m thrilled to welcome our next cohort of next gen CPM leaders to IREM education and leadership training.”
Keshavjee, who is also a licensed real estate associate broker, joined Amhurst Property Management in 2017 and currently oversees a portfolio 1,500 single and multifamily housing units and more than 200,000 square feet of commercial space. Born and raised in Calgary, he is a graduate of Queen’s University and a volunteer with Calgary’s Rotary International chapter.
The sole Canadian among IREM’s 2021-22 next gen leaders, Keshavjee will complete his CPM course work and two one-week specialized education modules in sync with his U.S.-based classmates, and attend the 2021 and 2022 IREM Global Summits as part of the group. The next gen program is open to nominated candidates who have at least two years of real estate management experience, are no older than 40 and will have the required amount of experience for a CPM designation by the time they have completed the program.
