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.
