CMSI Management Inc. is a leader in the community management field, utilizing the latest available technology and integrating it with our proven management approach of paying personal attention to the details of your community.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

An innovative approach to Community Association Management.

What does this mean... A management firm must be capable and prepared to deal with the most important assets in a client's interest: their homes and their money.

We manage homes by assuring that the Association's Administrative and Operational needs are taken care of. We manage their money by assuring a comprehensive checks and balances system for accounts receivable and payable are in place and under the supervision of Qualified Professionals. We believe in order to effectively manage a Community Association, a company must have the proper team properly deployed. At CMSI Management Inc., we strive to meet these unique challenges.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

CMSI Management Inc.'s staff is committed to continued education in the community management field. Because of the constantly changing laws and structures of community associations, our company policy requires all management staff to hold the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA), Association Management Specialist (AMS) or Professional Community Association Management (PCAM) designations; or be active in the Professional Management Development Program (PMDP), with the goal of achieving those designations. Also, refresher courses must be taken periodically to maintain certification and keep up with these changes.
