Owners are encouraged to email any questions or concerns they may have to their property manager directly. Or, they can pick up the phone and make a quick call to our office. If the property manager isn’t available, someone else will do their best to answer every question. Moving forward with the times and technology, we are working towards distributing all meeting minutes via email and we encourage all owners to participate in this undertaking.
