For Association Boards
Need a little help?I WANT TO...

Get your Management Price Per Unit

The number of residential units plays a part in our price quote but other factors are important too.   We need to understand what association responsibilities are spelled out in the documents because every set of documents are different. Minimally we need to know what common elements are included, extent of maintenance required and the level of services expected by homeowners.

Understand your Standard Services

Sentry’s full service contract includes:

Get a tenured Community Manager

Sentry has been in the community management business since 1975. Managers average 8+ years in tenure, one of the most experienced workforces in the industry.

Know if you have any Formal or Informal Relationships with Vendors

Sentry Management is solely a community management firm. We have no affiliations or ownership positions with any other business or service that may be purchased by an association.

Know how much and what types of Insurance Coverage your firm carries

Sentry caries worker’s compensation, employee practices, property, vehicle, fraud/theft, liability policies, including $3 million bond and $10 million in umbrella coverage. Sentry is willing to share our certificate of insurance so boards can make ‘apples-to-apples’ comparisons.

Make sure all Fees and Costs will be fully disclosed

You will never be surprised by an additional charge that is not revealed in the contract. Nothing is vaguely written or open-ended in our standard agreement.

Know how you handle the Administration of Financial and Accounting Matters

Sentry’s designation as an Accredited Management Organization® (AMO®) causes us to have separate, specialized accounting, collections and accounts payable functions. It guarantees transparency and the utmost integrity in handling your community’s funds.

Know the Set-up Fee to transition to your company

We never charge a set-up fee for routine transitions.
