The most effective attribute a successful HOA Property Management Company can have are:
1) The ability to handle day-to-day issues with good sense and without supervision
2) Helpfully guide the Board's decision-making processes and
3) Be available and responsive to homeowners
Naturally, a successful HOA manager should be professionally competent is all aspects of Association Management and have the requisite licensure and experience to perform their required duties. But there are other attributes that are important to be a successful HOA service provider!
Homeowners have more permanence and investment than renters, so effective HOA Management must consider the long-term implications of its actions differently than a typical property management firm. Consistency, fairness, approachability and proven experience are important considerations, as are the interpersonal skills of the firm' manager(s) in dealing with conflicts, emergencies and the expressed interests of the Board in all aspects of their community.
With this in mind, it's important to hire an HOA management company that has proven methods for managing group politics and negotiating agreements among members with conflicting points of view. You should feel comfortable and confident that your Manager will represent your community with its best interests at heart.
You should expect your professional HOA management company to deliver these key results:
Faster response times, to Board requests and homeowner inquiries
Safe and efficient financial management
Fairness and equity in handling disputes
Better vendor relations and more diversified bids
About 75% of HOAs are managed by professional companies.
Finding the firm to best fit your needs is what it's all about.
