Managing associations is a serious undertaking that comes with huge responsibilities. If you are not sure whether your association or property is being effectively managed, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you spend more than 3 hours per month working on Association/Property business?
- Are you unsatisfied with the cost and performance of your contracts?
- Do you consult an attorney on a regular basis?
- Are your condo fees higher than other, similar buildings?
- Do you still use coupon books to pay your monthly assessments?
- Do you continually tell your management company what to do?
- Do you feel your building is not as clean as it should be?
- Does your management co. avoid taking financial responsibility for a bad decision on their part?
- Do you have outstanding issues that have been lingering for a long time?
- Have your utility costs been rising over time without a plan to control costs?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s likely that your current management company is not performing to the minimum standards our clients have come to expect. Invite us in for a complimentary consultation and see what Blackstone can do for you.
Complimentary Initial Consultation
Do you have a complex problem that’s keeping you up at night? Need a second opinion on a tough issue? Don’t hesitate to ask and we will do everything we can to help find a solution. Let us tour your building and we’ll put together a list of easy fixes that will have an immediate and visible impact on the value of your community
Associations looking to save time, money and increase the quality of all their operations are taking advantage of Blackstone’s “Bundled Services Program”. Through our strategic partnerships, we can offer janitorial, front desk, concierge, building maintenance and security services all under one roof. The more services you bundle, the higher the potential for savings.
Customized 100 Day Business Plan
We will create a customized 100 Day Business Plan to ensure key core initiatives are accomplished quickly and efficiently in your community. During this period we will implement the most cost effective professional management solution available and address any issues brought up during our initial consultation
In-Unit Maintenance (for Condominium Associations)
If you have a problem in your unit, simply call us and we’ll send our in-house contractor to fix the problem in record time. All our contractors are insured, bonded, but best of all, are familiar with every aspect of your building and can therefore offer significant savings, upwards of 70%. Compare that to phone book contractors who charge $100 trip fees just to show up. Unit preparation for leasing is also available at minimal cost
Full-Service Leasing & Sales
We are not just an association management company but also a boutique sales and marketing organization. We offer substantial discounts for Home and Condo owners who elect to rent or sell their units using a Blackstone Agent. Since we know the buildings under our management better then anybody, we are in a great position to fill the units with quality owners and tenants.
Owner Portal & Direct Debit Payments
Each resident receives their own personal web portal which can be used to pay condo fees, set up automatic direct debit payments, receive payment reminders by e-mail and stay up to date on what’s happening in their community. Never deal with coupon books, checks, postage and late fees ever again!
Our industry leading, state of the art accounting software can deliver any financial report imaginable at any point in time and will simply “WOW” you. Financial reports are delivered by e-mail to all board members by the 5th of every month and are instantly stored within their respective web portals for future reference.
Green & Sustainable Energy Programs
Going Green is not just good for the environment, it’s good business! We continually monitor energy consumption, perform energy audits and evaluate the feasibility of retrofitting lighting to super efficient LEDs, all at no expense to the Association because we believe saving energy is just the right thing to do.
