The dollars and cents in the operations of a community are of vital concern to all owners. Preferred recognizes the need for sound fiscal management policies and has developed systems for efficiently and effectively providing these services at the most cost effective level.
The foundation for every successfully run Association is a realistic budget derived from thorough planning and "sharp" negotiating with suppliers and vendors . Preferred Management provides the assistance necessary to create sound Association budgeting and financial controls. Our state-of-the-art computerized system provides Budget vs. Actual reporting on a continuous basis to ensure all expenses and revenue stay "in line".

Consequently, our firm has formulated recommended procedures for how to safely and intelligently manage your community reserve assets.
Our services include the timely collection of all Association dues, delinquency charges, special assessments, liens and foreclosure accounts. Monthly maintenance bills are individually distributed to each unit owner prior to the beginning of each month. All payments are reviewed and deposited on the same day that they are received by Management. All collection problems are promptly dealt with, be it a helpful email when the opportunity allows as well as reminder notice. The process of collections is a critical area to the management of an Association. If legal assistance is required, Management will, at the direction of the Board and with the Association's counsel, collaborate in the joint effort of full collections.
Payment of all invoices and other obligations of the Association are handled in a timely and competent manner. Preferred can assume full responsibility for all disbursements with prior Board approval , or if the Board requests more "hands on" control; double endorsements of all checks can be arranged, with all disbursements having at least one Board Member's signature.
A monthly financial statement is presented to the Board of Directors each month, reflecting a complete accounting of the prior month's financial transactions. The standard financial statement includes Cashflow Reports , a Detailed Disbursement Transaction Journal, Detailed Accounts Receivable Journal , and a complete reconciliation of the Association's Bank Accounts and the Collections Journal . Other reports can be generated at the Board of Director's request.
