We develop targeted association management and lifestyle programs for your community, including the fitness and wellness programs that are popular with today’s active adults. We manage your amenities, including your spa, swimming pool, tennis court and fitness center, so that your board members and residents can fully enjoy your community instead of managing it.
Lifestyle communities, with their resort-style recreational, social and wellness amenities steps from home, are becoming ever more popular in Texas. We recognize the unique needs of lifestyle communities, and offer the services they need to run smoothly. Our specialized lifestyle community association management services are specifically geared toward creating experiences that bring residents together. With a dedicated activity director or lifestyle director, we will plan events and programming specifically designed to engage and connect residents in the community. Not to mention, letting us manage your lifestyle community gives you more time to enjoy it!
Master-planned communities offer their residents an array of options and amenities that aren’t available in many other communities, from sports fields and playgrounds to water parks to social programs. We have experience managing all of those amenities, and more, in a way that will enhance your community’s property values, maintain your curb appeal and improve the lifestyle of every resident. We provide expert services such as strategic planning and financial management that make the most of your association dollars and save you money. Every master-planned community has access to the services of our dedicated lifestyle division as well, offering assistance with programs and activities tailored to your unique community.
For many people, their home is their single greatest investment – and we treat it that way. As your single-family home community partner, we work with your board to ensure that your community is financially sound, that your vendor agreements maximize the value you get for your money and that your investment has the chance to grow.
We apply the same principles that made us the leader in residential property management to commercial property management. Every kind of commercial association, including mixed use developments, business office parks, commercial condominiums, live/work/play communities and master retail centers, will save money through our industry-leading financial management, vendor management and maintenance programs.
Today’s urban dwellers want it all residential, commercial, retail and public spaces all in one convenient location. And cities across the U.S. are delivering. The combination of several types of property in one community is a unique challenge to manage. Our specialized experience in mixed-use properties allows us to tailor our proven, professional solutions to your one-of-a-kind community. We can simplify your operations, save your association money through vendor management and budget analysis and enforce your covenants so your community is in harmony.
