Smaller associations may find it cost prohibitive to hire qualified and responsive professional management. Larger associations may mistakenly think that Management is a replacement for the Board and provide limited oversight.
No matter what size your property, the Board is responsible to understand current legal requirements and ensure that either the Board and/or Management are complying. We educate you on how to stay in compliance and decrease risk.
We are not a management company, but can assist you in determining the most effective management and procedural options specific to your property whether professionally or self-managed.
We can act as an extension to professional management, which can be especially helpful during developer turnovers, capital improvement projects and management transitions.
Or, if you are unsatisfied with existing management, we can guide you on either working to better that relationship or can perform a thorough management search to meet the association’s service expectations.
We are not an accounting or law firm, but can help you determine when you need to get a CPA or attorney involved.
We are not engineers or construction managers, but can manage the process of confirming the Scope of Work, identifying the proper vendors, negotiating for quality services, obtaining funding for repairs, and overseeing the budget for the most cost effective outcome.
We offer basic and comprehensive consultation
options to “Do-It-Yourself” or can manage the
project to ensure its timely and efficient completion.
Designed to meet in between professional
and self-management, our “Management
Coaching” retainer services are a cost-effective
alternative to give Boards the guidance and confidence
to manage accurately—whether monthly,
quarterly or annually.
