HOA's and H2O: The H2O Glossary

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Jun 5, 2019 9:42:17 AM

Conserving water is a year-round activity. In fact, the best way for you to conserve water is to make it a regular habit. I thought I would take a little break from 'technology' and open the month by sharing the H2O Glossary I wrote for the CAI Central Arizona Chapter Community Resource magazine: HOA's and H2O.  While some of the "terms" are related specifically to Arizona (where I am based) many apply regardless of location nationwide.  Every state has their own local organizations and I encourage you to read up more on them.

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Apr 10, 2019 8:05:00 AM

The growing ubiquity of cloud-computing is built on the assumption of stable and secure remote access. For association managers, this has meant the transition from pen and paper to mobile account lookup, and violation and work order capture on smart phones and tablets.

Posted by Sarah Sukta on Mar 27, 2019 8:30:00 AM


Property managers and HOA Boards often get a bad rap because most of the communication with homeowners skews negative, such as, “you painted your house the wrong color and now you must redo all of it!”, or “hurry up and pull those weeds!”  While these messages to homeowners for compliance issues are necessary for community maintenance, often they are interpreted as personal attacks, or at least a nuisance.  With the warmer spring weather, homeowners are usually more interested in beautifying their homes, which presents a great opportunity to property managers for positive reinforcement.  Here are some ideas on how to use uManage and the eUnify homeowner portal - Community Link to facilitate positive community yard campaigns:

When it comes to technology and selecting software providers, it is extremely important to consider the cost of software. Equally important is assessing the true IT costs of your operation.

Let’s consider one key “must-have” when it comes to choosing software and ensuring a quicker return on investment: Cloud-computing.
