Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Carol Rickert & Associates of Albuquerque, NM has merged with Sentry Management, a national leader in HOA and Condo association management.
Howard Pomp, Sentry Management’s Chairman and CEO, recently announced the closing of the transaction. “Sentry has grown to be a major player in community association management by providing top-notch customer service and unmatched value,” said Mr. Pomp. “But we also want to grow by adding companies that are well positioned in their local market. We are fortunate to identify a firm like Carol’s that is the perfect combination for success. In Carol Rickert’s company we found know-how, great community relationships and flexibility to successfully integrate into Sentry.”
Carol Rickert Asbury, CCIM®, CMCA®, PCAM®, who leads the Albuquerque office, is upbeat about what the merger means to communities in New Mexico. “I believe our level of customer service coupled with the technological and administrative advantages of Sentry Management makes this a perfect merger. Local homeowners have much to gain—expanded payment methods and website capabilities. Sentry’s operational platform allows our Community Managers to spend more time on critical community issues instead of routine behind-the-scenes tasks. Association board members will love online access to sophisticated real-time community financials anytime they want. The overall value we bring to communities has been significantly enhanced.”
Two of Sentry Management’s key strengths will be implemented in the Albuquerque office. Sentry is one of only a handful of HOA and Condo Association management firms in the country with an Accredited Management Organization® certification by the Institute of Real Estate Management. This is a powerful indication of professional financial standards and internal systems. Secondly, CommunityPro®, Sentry’s proprietary operating software, will be extended to local community associations. CommunityPro® automates communicating with residents, maintaining association budgets, tracking accounts receivable, paying/managing vendors, reconciling accounts, initiating collection for non-payment and generating financial reports.
