Name Change Part of North American Rebranding Effort Highlighting National Reach and Personalized Local Service

LAS VEGAS, NV (June 27, 2013) – The corporate headquarters of FirstService Residential has announced that its subsidiaries, RMI Management and Excellence Community Management, have been renamed FirstService Residential. This name change is part of FirstService Residential’s national rebranding effort, which took effect on June 27, 2013.
FirstService Residential is the largest manager of residential communities in North America, overseeing more than 6,000 properties and over 1.5 million residential units. 
The former RMI and Excellence, established leaders in Nevada’s residential property management market, manage a client portfolio of more than 400 communities.  RMI became a subsidiary of FirstService Residential in 2004, followed by Excellence in 2011.
“FirstService Residential shares our collective mission to provide outstanding service to our managed communities, and continues to support our efforts to enhance values and lifestyles for every community and resident we serve,” said Steven Parker, formerly president & CEO of RMI and now president of FirstService Residential Nevada. 
Added April Parsons, formerly president of Excellence and now FirstService Residential Nevada’s Senior Vice President of Business Development & Client Relations, “FirstService Residential provides a unique benefit to clients by pairing our extensive corporate resources with the local leadership, personal touch and deep market expertise of our companies.”
Company president Parker also noted that the rebranding to FirstService Residential signifies a change in company name only, and all day-to-day operations will remain “business as usual.” Current community management teams will remain in place to service their existing customers, with added benefits gained from access to an expanded core of resources, combined purchasing power and shared expertise and best practices.
