The First Hundred Days of Transition
This time period is the most significant and critical period for the overall client/manager relationship. Upon approval by the board/owner to retain MasterLink’s management services, the following functions, in addition to normal operations, will occur in the first 100 days:
- During the first week (and prior to that time) the activity will be considerable, not only in the property, but in our corporate office as well. Within 10-15 days of our services, we will enter the unit owner roster into our main computer system. This will generate a timely payment for homeowners’ maintenance fees and a welcome letter introducing MasterLink. The letter will contain (1) numbers to contact MasterLink’s customer service, accounting, and emergency departments, and (2) an explanation of electronically or through the normal paper channel for the making of maintenance payments.and will be sent to all owners immediately following our introduction letter.
- Prior to the first day of service, all new on-site staff members as well as the staff members retained will meet with MasterLink’s senior management. At this meeting the employees will fill out our employment package and will be set up for drug testing and made aware of all company employee benefits and safety standards. Further orientation in areas of training and customer service skills will be scheduled at this time. The administration of the property will begin with the assembling the books and records of the community and a detailed review of all of the following: service contracts, insurance policies, association documents, correspondence files, and minutes. We will also be examining the inflated contractual costs, expiration dates, and charges that the association is eligible for exemption, and the possibility of utility audits.
With Regard to Maintenance of the Community
To ensure that our staff performs its necessary functions, we will establish job descriptions and schedules for all. Our management team including the property manager will tour the property, take photos, set up things to do, a work-order bulletin board, and initiate an asset-management manual.
We will schedule initial meeting with the board to set immediate and long-term goals. The immediate concern will be: pending work orders, correspondence, bids, lawsuits, and any already-scheduled contracted work. We would request that the board share with us its initial concerns and policies regarding collections, violations, screenings, emergencies, etc.. We will then make recommendations to the board for both long- and short-term maintenance projects, contracts, policies, and use of staff. From the above, the board and management will have the information to produce a plan for optimal results and ensure that everyone is working toward the same goals.
What does the association have to lose?
Absolutely nothing. There are no start up fees, no termination fees or penalties. In effect, the association benefits in areas of increased organization, job descriptions, policies and procedures, all manuals, etc., which remain with the community.
