The right partnership.


The right partnership.


At Community Association Partners, we realize that finding the right management company is often difficult, time consuming, and costly. Too often the Board bases the criteria for selection on the “least expensive” rather than whether or not the management company is the “right fit” for the association.

Some items to consider are:

  • Does the personality of the management company and its manager fit with the Board and your association?
  • What professional organizations do the management company and its managers belong to?
  • What specialized training has the manager had? How many associations are they currently managing and with what type of amenities?
  • How is the management company’s office organized? How will the HOA funds be handled, and what internal checks and balances are in place to safeguard association funds?
  • Are there additional costs hidden in the management contract, such as overtime costs and other additional charges?

At CA Partners, we focus on setting a higher standard, being committed, and finding the right fit for your association. Request a management proposal by clicking here: request proposal.

Real-estate Services

Sales packets

These packages provide the information that a prospective purchaser needs to know about a community. This can include the annual budget, reserve study, governing documents, resolutions, rules and regulations, meeting minutes, important items of correspondence, and other informative materials.

Governing documents

All prospective purchasers need to be able to review the governing documents (including the Declaration of Protective Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions – also known as the CC&Rs – the Bylaws, and the Articles of Incorporation, if the community is incorporated). The governing documents detail such things as what the association’s maintenance and repair responsibilities include (will the owner have to pay for replacement of his/her roof, or is the HOA responsible for that work?), what things owners can and cannot do on their own property, and when owners have to submit changes to their property to the association for approval prior to making those changes (for example, do they need to get approval to change the color of their home?).

Resolutions, rules and regulations

These items further define and clarify the restrictions contained within the governing documents, including items like the terms of remittance of dues, late fees, and the grace period for payment. Contained in these documents are other items such as insurance information, so that the prospective owner can obtain the proper level of coverage for his/her property.

Attending sales meetings

The developers have a vision for their community, but each developer and each community is different. We can explain how the developer’s decisions for the association impacts the owners’ responsibilities.

Associations are here to stay, so let us help you understand the ins and outs and how they can provide long-term benefits to your clients.
