Commercial Association Management
Commercial business park property owner associations (POAs) rely on their management company for the day to day heavy lifting as well as long term enhancement of the business park common areas. Effective management means being responsible and accountable to the Board and ensuring that assessment funds are used wisely to create value for the business park owners.
With extensive experience in association management and commercial property management, APM is uniquely qualified to manage commercial POAs. We understand the needs of the POA and its individual property owners to support common areas and to sustain and enhance property values. We handle the legwork for the POA by gathering information and presenting options so the Board can make efficient decisions in the best interests of the POA.
APM has enjoyed recognition by boards, owners and municipalities for proactive, innovative and visionary management initiatives in the commercial association space. And we offer exceptional service without compromise. With our distributed workforce business model and strategic use of technology, we're able to deliver efficiency and value to our clients while maintaining an exceptional reputation within the industry.
Strong proactive management helps to ensure that these funds are used wisely. A beautifully maintained property and a solid financial statement are unspoken testimonies to members of the POA that the Board of Directors is exercising strong leadership.
We pride ourselves on being naturally proactive rather than reactive. And we're solutions oriented. We're available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and a live emergency answering service ensures that we can be reached in emergencies. If necessary, we have the expertise to assist with emergency repairs.

Strategic long-term maintenance can have significant aesthetic and economic implications.
It directly impacts the impression that tenants - existing and prospective - as well as their clients and visitors have of the property and increases the appeal and ultimate value for the entire property.
We emphasize the importance of preventive maintenance and our maintenance reviews focus on deferred issues that when addressed will enhance value.
We believe that the time the Board of Directors and POA members invest in board meetings and annual meetings should be used wisely.
Effective meeting management is a critical form of communication with owners and we're very good at it.
We manage and deliver the board packages and advance communications that enable board meetings to run smoothly, with nothing being overlooked.
APM seeks to always communicate in a professional, neighborly and courteous way to promote a spirit of cooperation in the community.
Communication is an essential element in successful association management.
Our commitment to efficient, clear and accurate communications on behalf of the Board helps to create and maintain a unified community spirit and keep the members informed about important issues.
Our communications are one of the most mentioned and appreciated aspects of our service.
In the interest of the environment, we employ technology to deliver communications electronically to the extent legally permissible and as authorized by Association members.
