Choosing the Best HOA Management Company
Choosing an HOA Management company that is in sync with an HOA Board’s philosophy is critical in achieving the HOA’s goals. Serving on an HOA Board is a thankless position that can often be frustrating and filled with strife and conflict. It’s important that the Board choose an agent that has the industry experience, resources, and strong customer focus to provide the support and guidance Boards and community residents must be able to rely on.

Shared Partnership Goals | Roles of the Board and Management
Achieving the HOA’s goals through a partnership requires the understanding that the roles of the HOA Board and Property Management Company are separate and distinct.
As the HOA industry expert, the Property Manager’s job is to provide the Board of Directors with professional guidance, solutions to challenges, and detailed reporting of all HOA business. These resources allow Boards to make the best decisions possible, based on the most current data available, to accomplish the HOA’s goals.
A Board’s general duties mirror the shared partnership goals of Boards and Management. These duties include:
Enforcement – Enforce the governing documents through disciplinary measures and in some instances litigation.
Maintenance – Maintain and repair the common areas and other items which the association may have an obligation to manage under the governing documents or other contractual agreements.
Financial Management – Levy and collect assessments, pay the association’s bills, review financial records, prepare budgets and financial statements, and manage the reserve account.
Operations – Manage the day-to-day operations of the association. This typically involves utilizing professional management, legal, accounting, landscape, pest control, and insurance services. In addition, the board must set policies to ensure the smooth operation of the association and to govern the use of the association’s common area facilities and recreational amenities.
A Board’s unwritten duty is ultimately to increase homeowners’ return on investment, and this is often accomplished by solving deferred maintenance challenges. Applying the experience, best industry practices, and guidance provided by the Property Management expert helps Boards anticipate and meet the needs of their Community.
