Skills and Objectives
My years as a realtor, has provided me, a distinct insight and frustration on how many of our local HOA’s and COA’s are being managed and currently doing business. Nothing, is more frustrating for a buyer or seller, than a community with poor leadership, inadequate financial reserves and no longer or short term strategic planning. Each one of these has enormous impacts on the valuations, salability and viability of HOA or COA communities. My own, non-profit background, enables me to understand the challenges faced by boards, in trying to build a strong sustaining leadership core, volunteer base, and fiscal strength. Every community needs to share common goals of mission, purpose, transparency, and accountability. It is my goal, along with NW Management Group, LLC to provide the necessary leadership and council to set up and maintain those objectives, rules and controls. All of which, are necessary for safer, secure and more valuable communities.
