(Mar. 13, 2014)— Shannon Kear, Wise Property Solutions,  recently joined the elite group of community association managers who have earned the Association Management Specialist (AMS®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). Kear is one of more than 6,000 managers worldwide who have earned this prestigious designation.

Kear joined Wise Property Solutions to serve its Knoxville area communities.
