Please find below a number of Board Member
testimonials who have shared their experience
with KareCondo.

“Bruce Cedar and the Kare Condominium
Management Company (KareCondo) provide
professional property management at a
reasonable cost.  I am the controller for a
construction company and real estate
developer.  I have been a condo board
member for over five years – including serving
as treasurer for most of those.  I am pleased
to provide this testimonial.

Our board has had the opportunity to work
with a number of property managers and a
variety of property management companies
over the years.  None of them compare to
Bruce and the KareCondo team.  KareCondo
has helped make us a more effective and more
efficient board of directors.  KareCondo
manages the property which allows the board
to focus on the management of the
association.

KareCondo takes care of all the details so we
don’t have to.  Plus, they do a great job.  
They have forged relationships with a number
of preferred providers which means better
service at a lower rate for the association.  I
can’t say it any simpler than that.  If you are
in need of an association property
management company, you need to call
KareCondo.”

 Bradley A. Lohan, Board Treasurer

"Our Association has utilized the services of
KareCondo for the past decade.  During that
time we have found the management services
of Bruce Cedar and his team to be excellent.  I
offer the following examples:

Financial Services-Reporting is timely and
accurate, with expenditures and banking
information provided in exacting detail and
easily audited.

Communications-Calls and emails from our
residents are managed with courtesy and in a
timely manner.

Contract and Service Management- Vendor
contracting and performance management are
done proactively and in a professional
manner.  If problems develop, they are quickly
remedied.

Beyond these important and specific areas of
service, Bruce and the staff do a great job of
knowing how to interact with our Board and
the "unique" profiles each of the Board
members may have.

I would recommend KareCondo to any
Association seeking professional and
competent property management."

        Tom Marshall, Board President

“Nearly two years ago, the board on which I
serve hired KareCondo to help our association
recover from felonious actions of our previous
management company.  Since that time,
Bruce Cedar and his capable staff, including an
in house CPA, have provided strong support
and sound management in developing
procedures for our board to run more
smoothly.

He has assisted us in examining our fee
structure, managing daily details, contracting
for necessary maintenance services, and
coordinating with contractors and legal
counsel.

His ‘no nonsense’ management style helps
our meetings to run smoothly and efficiently.  
His detail oriented method of follow up leads
to the efficient and thorough completion of
business.

He is ever available and quick to respond to
needs between meeting dates. He has
encouraged us to develop a long-term plan so
that our board can operate more seamlessly
when new board members are elected.

In my estimation, KareCondo has been an
asset to our association and continues to
provide excellent management services.”

L. Brad Shotwell, Board Vice-President

“As a Board Member, I have worked with two
different management companies.  The
experience with the first management
company was fraught with problems.  
However, after working with KareCondo, I
have discovered that management companies
are not all alike.

KareCondo is a totally professional and very
responsive business which is more than willing
to discuss with and inform Board Members of
problems and decisions.  They have given us
sound advice and have negotiated contracts
with vendors to provide the Association with
the best quality services and goods for the
money and yet maintain our high standards.

We are working very hard to make our
Association as “green” as we can, and
KareCondo has worked with us in this
endeavor.

Because of KareCondo, our Association has
timely administrative support, accurate
monthly financials, yearly budget proposals,
and daily supervision of the grounds.  Prior to
each monthly meeting, the Board receives
financial reports defining income and
expenditures against the budget, daily
telephone records, maintenance requests and
maintenance logs as well as other detailed
correspondence needed in preparation for the
meetings.  We now have a solid working
Reserve Account for the Association, and we
are funding it monthly without increasing our
assessments.

We are pleased with the assistance and
guidance we receive from KareCondo and I
highly recommend them.”

Ramona S. Weber, Board Treasurer

“Trust is the foundation of a successful
relationship between a condominium
association and a management company.  We
had many problems with our first two
management companies: being treated like
renters instead of homeowners, having work
orders delayed for months, using inadequate
or improper accounting procedures, being lied
to on a regular basis, phone calls and emails
ignored, and much more that convinced us we
were getting very little value from our
relationships.

Therefore, we interviewed three management
companies in early 2010 and hired KareCondo
shortly thereafter. Our homeowners are now
treated with dignity and respect, work around
the property is completed in a timely fashion,
our finances are managed in a transparent
manner, phone calls and emails are responded
to quickly, and all communications have
dramatically improved.

KareCondo has also assisted in assuring that
we have all the proper insurance and fidelity
bonds in place to protect the Association from
liability and we have followed their lead and
began scanning all association records so that
we are as paperless as possible.

It is a pleasure to finally have a management
company with which we can have a productive
working relationship.”

Susan Carpenter, Board Secretary/Treasurer

"I have been a member of our Board for 9
years.  During that time we have had three
different management companies.  Kare
Condominium Management Company
(KareCondo), under the leadership of Bruce
Cedar, is by far the most effective
management company we have had.  Bruce
brings knowledge, expertise, and leadership
to the company.  They use current technology
for record keeping and communication.  The
employees are friendly and responsive to the
needs of our association.  I recommend
KareCondo to anyone seeking a professional
association management company."

           Jim Dagley, Board Treasurer

"Under the leadership of Bruce Cedar and
Ashlee Miller, I have high regard for the
service provided by Kare Condominium
Management Company (KareCondo).  In
nearly eight years as a board member of our
Association, I have found the staff of this firm
to be professional, effective, efficient, and
sensitive.  As with any organization and/or
association, problems do arise and exist.  
KareCondo responds promptly and with
appropriate correction.  I heartily endorse
KareCondo and would be happy to talk with
other Associations regarding their services."

     Roger Edwards, Board President

                                                   
"I can say with complete confidence that hiring
KareCondo as our property manager/partner
was one of our board's best decisions. We
have been through some challenging times
with our community.  Our prior experience
was without the benefit of a well-organized
and equally well-executed property
management service.  Bruce Cedar and his
team bring professionalism, expertise, and
proactive management to their associations.
This relationship has improved our community
overall and positively impacted the entire
board experience."
