HOA management companies and association boards of directors share one common purpose: to protect property values and build a stronger sense of community. A community thrives as the result of impactful individual contributions working collectively toward these objectives. This includes maintaining industry best practices while also staying up-to-date with what’s currently trending in the world today and understanding when changes are needed.
At Keystone, we have the knowledge, experience, and technology to equip HOA boards with what they need to serve their communities exceptionally well. In addition, we believe it’s the level of commitment to excellence that our team exudes that makes an impactful difference. Guided by our company’s vision and mission, our goal is to improve people’s lives beyond expectations and, in partnership with each client, we are empowered to provide tailored solutions to enhance property values and treat every community like it is our own.
This ethos aligns with the values of the Community Associations Institute (CAI), which is the only national organization dedicated to “fostering vibrant, responsive, competent community associations” with a mission to “assist community associations in promoting harmony, community, and responsible leadership and giving board members, managers, and homeowners the knowledge to better run their associations.”
Each year, CAI recognizes members with a profound dedication to their communities who have made a significant contribution to the industry. This year, we’re happy to recognize the 13 Keystone team members who were nominated for the 2021 CAI Orange County Excellence in Community (OCEC) Awards.
