We are an HOA management company known for our expertise.
Because of the array of issues or situations that can arise in an HOA, it can be difficult for self-managed associations to adequately handle everything. That’s why typically, the Board will hire an expert association management company to work directly with them. When you hire an HOA management company, you’re not only reducing the Board’s workload, you’re also bringing in the knowledge that other team members may not have.
What is the difference between a Community Association Manager and a Property Manager?
Community Association Managers
- Oversees all aspects of business, ensuring operational efficiency
Community Association Managers oversee and direct all aspects of running the business, and therefore must have comprehensive knowledge of the business operation and applicable laws.
This knowledge base is what separates them from the property manager and allows them to personally ensure that an entire community operates as efficiently and successfully as possible. They work for both the Board and the homeowners.
- Limited efficiency due to limited scope of work
Property Managers spend most of their time dealing with tenants and reporting directly to the owner of a unit. Their day-to-day responsibilities include tasks such as collecting rent, showing vacant units to prospective tenants, and arranging repairs for items inside the unit.
Their main focus is to ensure that the maximum number of properties are rented with the highest possible revenues.
What are the essential duties of a Community Manager?

Management completes regular inspections of the property to ensure that maintenance items are addressed with the proper contractors and enforcement of the governing documents is continued (per the Board’s expressed direction).
