Community Association Management
Homeowner Association Management
CMS tailors our management services to provide you with EXACTLY what you need to manage your Condominium, Townhome, or Single Family Homeowner Association.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our Company continually obtains up-to-date information on Local, State, and Federal Legislation, as well as City and County Code changes affecting your neighborhood and property.
Our Community Association Managers have earned the highest praise for their timely and caring response to Homeowners, and Boards of Directors alike; not to mention that our Management team has a combined experience of more than 40 years in the Association Management Industry.
CMS and their Management Team have earned the reputation of being an honest and reputable Company.
CMS's management portfolio consists of communities located in Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando Counties in Florida. Our properties range in size from as low as 4 units, up to as many as 165 units. Our Associations are a mix of Condominiums, Townhomes, Single Family Communities, and Planned Unit Developments.
We offer full-scale Management Services complete with onsite inspections for CC&R compliance, correspondence, maintenance bid and supervision. If you're looking for accounting services only, we can provide that too! Direct responsibility for each property is assigned to a highly qualified, experienced Community Association Property Manager who will implement the Association's Management Plan in accordance with policies and procedures previously established by the Association. Direct interoffice communication, established policies and procedures, and qualified personnel are the keys to CMS's management success record. Consequently, the critical attention to detail is not lost through a time-consuming search for knowledge or answers.
