Braintree and New Bedford, MA (September 15, 2023) – The Peabody Companies, a group of award-winning property management and real estate firms is pleased to announce that Kim LaRose-Peets of New Bedford, Massachusetts, has been awarded a New England Past President’s Scholarship by the Boston Chapter of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) to pursue a Accredited Residential Manager (ARM) credential.
The New England Past President’s Scholarship encourages education and industry knowledge by assisting recipients with the cost of tuition associated with earning an IREM credential.
LaRose-Peets, who joined the Peabody Companies in July of 2020, is the property manager at Olympia Towers in New Bedford.
The scholarship award will cover a significant portion of the tuition associated with earning her ARM.
