What Makes Us Unique
Currently, Associations between 2 units and 264 units are under management, with the average Association size being 30 units. We have no policy regarding minimum size of Association. If we are able to work together in helping your Board manage the Association, you are important to us regardless of your Association size.
Beven & Brock is actively managed by the two founding partners, Fin Beven and David Brock, who are involved in the day–to-day management of the company. Both are easily accessible by e-mail or phone…. and you can expect a prompt response from us, either the same or the next day. This is true regardless of your
involvement with the company… as a Board member or homeowner. The company was built on the important principle of doing the right thing for our clients, day in and day out. It has paid off well for us, and there is no reason to make a change now.
In addition, Beven & Brock is committed to advancing their professional development through on-going educational opportunities for its staff. We are members of the two primary trade organizations involved in homeowner Association management. Both organizations (CACM and CAI) offer voluntary credential and designation programs. The links to these trade organizations are available on our links page. All of the Association managers at Beven & Brock are expected to be certified, exceeding the requirements in California. Other management companies may not hold to such high standards.
As certified managers, we are expected to participate each year in on-going training, as well as subscribe to a code of ethics. Continuing education is critically important, as each year there are new laws that impact the requirements of your Association and this industry. Read about CPM (Certified Property Manager) here.
What services does Beven & Brock provide to its clients?
The Association management services provided by Beven & Brock are generally divided into three broad categories. Those three areas are accounting, maintenance, and administrative. A brief description of the three is:
- Accounting: collection of receivables, deposited directly in the Associations bank account on which Board members are the signors, payable processing for all Association vendors with checks reviewed and signed by the Treasurer of your Association for proper accountability. The Board receives full financial statements each month with reconciled bank statements.
- Maintenance: the management company coordinates the maintenance needs of the Associations’ common area, as directed by the Board. This can include the coordination of regular monthly maintenance needs (i.e. pool, gardener) to the occasional maintenance or repair needs, to the emergency (urgent) maintenance issues that will arise from time to time.
- Administrative: this component includes advising the Board of the many administrative requirements under California state law, such as disclosure and reporting requirements. Also included is communication with owners regarding violations of the Rules and Regulations, or other issues as needed.
- Education: at Beven & Brock, we consider the area of Board member education to be an important part of this service.
Without a management company assisting the Board of Directors, it is very easy for the Board to become overwhelmed with the task of serving as a volunteer Board member.
Most Associations retain Beven & Brock for all three areas above, however it is possible to utilize our services for just accounting, or just accounting and administrative services.
