FirstService Residential, a leading property management company in Illinois, was selected managing agent for the both Bowes Creek Active Adult Townhomes and Master Association, located in Elgin, Illinois, effective October 1, 2014.

“The community of Bowes Creek is a model Active Adult community; offering its homeowners luxury living while continuously striving for best-in-class services.” said Asa Sherwood, FirstService Residential Illinois President.

Bowes Creek is part of a master development by Toll Brothers in the quickly growing area of western Elgin. The active adult community sits on an 18-hole golf course named one of the top three new courses in Illinois. Currently developed homes include 176 single family homes, and townhomes. The community features a private gated entry, a fully staffed clubhouse affording residents an on-site gym with scheduled classes, tennis, bocce, a heated pool, and social rooms for banquets, billiards, or cards. The on-site social director organizes a robust schedule of social events, along with an on-site management team handling day-to-day operations.

Sherwood, “The Board of Directors was looking for a management company that could lead the community through the next phase of its lifecycle. FirstService Residential was able to offer that next level service, but more importantly, we were awarded the contract because our people have the expertise, passion, and customer focus to elevate the operations of the community,”

FirstService Residential provides full-service management solutions for various types of residential community associations and cooperatives including some of Illinois’s most beautiful and recognizable structures. Their team of management professionals has served the homeowners of Illinois since 1950, and today the company is recognized as one of the foremost community management companies throughout the State of Illinois.
