Our HOA association chose Stellar Property Management after our contract was up with another property management company (feel free to ask via PM if you want the name of our previous property management company, they were horrid). Stellar has been amazing to work with, helped us get our HOA in a good financial state, creates a proactive maintenance calendar for our "vintage" building and is an active participant in the well-being of our building and condo community. I cannot say enough good things about Stellar, especially after previously being under the management of another company that was running our building into the ground, and charging more to do so. Mirsad (principal) attends our board meetings, stops by the building to address issues if one of his staff can't get there within 24 hours, and responds to requests in a timely manner. I am very impressed with Stellar's professionalism and furthermore, their knowledge in the property management industry. Mirsad has years of experience and truly understands building architecture and maintenance, and isn't just in the business to make money off of our HOA: Mirsad and his staff at Stellar have truly been partners with us, and genuinely care about the state of our building and association and have given useful, practical advice on short- and long-term repairs and practices we need to put in place to maintain our building and association for years to come. I highly recommend Stellar Property Management--within months of signing with Stellar, I knew we were in great hands. Our HOA has now been with Stellar for 2+ years, and we don't plan on going anywhere
Trust. That’s really what you want in a realtor, right? When it comes to the largest purchase you will probably make in your life, there’s a lot of trepidation. But when it came to looking at houses, we had lots of fun. Lee was completely professional, always showed up on time, was courteous to the other realtor even when they were not, and asked all the right questions. We had so much fun that we’ve joked about looking at houses again just for kicks. At our closing, everyone thanked us for such a smooth and laid back process. It wasn’t until afterwards that we heard all the horrible things that could have gone wrong: being sold a house out of your price range or with hidden pitfalls (we love our house and got a good deal), getting a mortgage that was different from what you thought it was (nothing could be further from ours), losing all contact with your realtor after closing (we talk with him all the time). I would whole-heartedly recommend Lee Diamond to everyone, you must get to know him!
I am happy to write this review for Connected Management. We are a smaller association with 23 units in Lakeview and have relied heavily on our manager to guide us through some major projects and legal issues over the past two years. Our manager has always been very quick to respond to all issues and is able to provide us with the instructions that we need to make informed decisions. We have made vast improvements to the financial condition through collecting on debt and using a proper budget; all of which were handled by our manager. They have great online tools that help us keep organized and allow unit owners to get nearly anything that they need immediately. My husband and I will be moving into a new townhome association within the next 90 days and will be keeping our unit as a rental. I will be recommending Connected to the new association as well. Overall they have been a big improvement over our previous company which I will not name.
