Preserve the value of your community
Preventive maintenance is key to maintaining the value of your investment for years to come. We’ll work with you to establish a recurring maintenance schedule to ensure your building retains its value. When you work with Gordon James Realty, you’ll also have access to a large network of trusted contractors who provide dependendable work at a fair price, eliminating the headache of negotiating and coordinating with unknown third party contractors.
Aside from routine maintenance, we’ll also effectively manage the reserve fund of your homeowner or condo association, ensuring you’re prepared for larger capital improvements that’ll boost the resale value of your property.

Board members play an important role in the operation of your community. But handling the day-to-day tasks of managing a building can cause burnout for these busy volunteers, who often have busy lives outside of their roles are board members. At Gordon James Realty, we’re adept at handling the routine work that’s involved with property management — from record keeping to rule enforcement to contract analysis. You maintain control, while we do the heavy lifting and ensure the work gets done. We’ll even help you navigate complex community issues and offer references to outside professionals, when necessary.
Streamline your community’s finances
Financial management is a top priority for homeowner and condo associations. But it’s often complex, with many pieces to consider including resident dues, fines, bills and budgets. Because each association operates differently, and we’ll work with you to determine an accounting and reporting structure that best fits the needs of your community. We’ll leverage our wealth of experience in budget management for homeowner and condo associations– as well as the latest technology — to ensure your financial information is transparent, organized and GAAP compliant.
