Mainlander is one of only fifty property management firms in the United States who have earned the prestigious designation of Certified Residential Management Company (CRMC). The National Association of Residential Property Managers awarded us this title after conducting a rigorous on-site audit of our management systems. Criterion examined included compliance with all local, state and federal regulations, as well as compulsory operation procedures enforced by our staff of experienced managers.

Chris Hermanski, the owner of Mainlander, is awarded the Residential Management Professional (RMP) certification and the Master Property Manager (MPM) certification. Chris is one of only two MPM’s in the Portland area. Only those with the best experience and highest reputation in the property management industry can attain this status.
