Transparency At Every Level
Are you satisfied with how your community is running?
Are there more questions than answers at your association?
Are there allegations of fraud or wrongdoing?
Do you fear your property values are decreasing due to the current operational methods?
Does your Board of Directors understand "Fiduciary Duty"?
Most associations run into confusing operational transactions and tense standoffs between neighbors. These types of issues can get heated every so often and the solutions may vary. Sometimes peaceful resolutions come about but many times, heated elections and or ugly battles between neighbors bring about change. Self-managed associations also at times require a helping hand with a definitive set of goals for the coming years. There are industry standards that should be followed for proper dissemination of information to all members of community associations. Proper procedures and transparency allow for property owners to have a comfortable level of understanding about their property and how their dues are being invested and spent. Most importantly, you probably want to know if your board of directors is operating within the expected industry standards and legal requirements of the state's laws.
I am an experienced Professional Community Association Manager specializing in condominium and homeowner associations. My successful work managing associations have all stemmed from properties in the Miami, Key Biscayne, Largo, Clearwater, and Clearwater Beach areas of Florida. I am familiar with associations that may need a helping hand in figuring out what may seem to be insurmountable problems.
The right system in place at your Association will guide the Board and Management in running the property smoothly by:
• Developing association budgets and financial reports to ensure your association prepares for future expenses and communicates to homeowners how their assessment dollars are spent.
• Properly evaluating your association’s grounds and common elements and ensure proper upkeep. This means that the manager should be willing to get involved and investigate problems adequately before simply taking a contractor’s word on a problem.
• Enforcing community association rules and restrictions fairly, equitably and reasonably
• Allowing Board Members to select contractors and insurance providers that can provide top-notch services for your association
• Overseeing and authorizing payment for services to ensure financial safeguards. Keeping a proper risk management plan.
• Promoting open communication, collaboration and community spirit within the association.
• Working closely with the Association’s Independent Accounting Firm and Legal Counsel to ensure all required laws are followed.
