ARLINGTON, Va. / June 16, 2014 – David Hargrove, CPM, will receive the National Apartment Association Education Institute (NAAEI) Apartment Career Education (ACE) Award during the June 21 Awards Breakfast at the 2014 NAA Education Conference & Exposition in Denver.
The ACE Award recognizes outstanding achievement in the field of apartment career development and/or contributions made to, or on behalf of, NAAEI, and its professional education interests and initiatives.
Hargrove, COO of Asset Plus Companies and President of their Greystone Asset Management Division, Houston, has been a tireless proponent of industry education and a strong advocate for the rental housing industry. During his term as president of the Texas Apartment Association (TAA), Hargrove’s passion for attracting veterans to the rental housing industry as a pool for disciplined talent formed the basis for TAA’s military initiative. His vision resulted in what are now successful and ongoing outreach efforts and education programs for transitioning military personnel conducted through the TAA Education Foundation.
In addition, as an instructor for the graduate real estate program at the University of Houston, Hargrove continues to shape the apartment industry’s future by giving back to the industry, its associations and the students in his classes.
He is also a certified instructor for the Texas Real Estate Commission and a volunteer instructor for the financial modules of Houston Apartment Association (HAA)’s CAM and CAPS courses. In 2009 he was inducted into the HAA Hall of Fame.
