We know the more knowledgable our property managers are, the better they will be able to serve you. Additionally, our property managers regularly attend seminars and trade meetings in order to stay on top of the latest legislation and changes in how HOA’s and COA’s operate in Kentucky.
Anyone can say they are ethical. We show we are ethical, in all that we do and say with our communities. We maintain strong principles which guide our daily decisions and actions. We will never betray the ideology of always doing the right thing – even if no one is looking. We strive to always make respectful, moral and ethical decisions when interacting with board members, homeowners and the community.
At the end of the day, we are humans first and your property manager second. We have decades of experience in knowing how to meet someone where they are at. Not everyone understands the same way, thinks the same way or reasons the same way. We have the ability to wear many hats – a trusted friend, a business partner, moral support and emotionally available when someone needs it most. With CMA, you’re not just hiring a company, you are introducing a knowledgable, caring compassionate human being to your close-knit community. We are honored to serve you.
