The Best People and Technology Benefits Your HOA or Condominium Association

Highly skilled and experienced Community Manages are the hallmark of the Sentry homeowner associations management approach. Each Community Manager leads an association-focused community team that includes dedicated internal staff. Every accounting associate, bookkeeper, administrator, collections and closings person establishes an ongoing relationship with associations and managers. To build engagement in your community, Sentry’s online administrative system called CommunityPro®, not only makes online payment of assessments easy, but supports monthly financial reports, helps with compliance and delinquency issues and makes all administrative data available to Board members 24/7.  The value of Sentry’s comprehensive support to your home owner association is responsiveness and personal attention.

Homeowner’s and Condo Association Boards Appreciate Sentry’s Response Times

When Board members are asked, there is always a direct correlation between the timeliness/quality of the communication from the Property Manager and the overall satisfaction with the community association management company. We keenly understand that relationship—and work to have every telephone call and email returned as quickly as possible, all correspondence and reports kept current and every deadline met. Communication with residents is also important. Helping residents understand the issues facing the community builds support for Board decisions.
