California: San Francisco
After having served in the industry of association and property management for the past 26-years and listening to board and general members alike, our founder decided it was time to set the bar for the local industry. In June of 2020 Ascendant Association & Property Management, L.L.C. was founded. Our founder felt it even more important that he open Ascendant after board members of several associations asked if he would consider managing their association. During those discussions a common theme became evident. One was that the owners or executives of the companies had over promised the board members. As those owners and executives faded from the scene managers would be assigned. Within six to twelve months the board would conclude the assigned manager was too distracted by the large number of accounts they had, under supported or too green for the myriad of issues their respective association was dealing with. When more than one of these board members shared that many in their community felt our founder “had set the bar” he felt compelled to resume assisting volunteer board members manage their associations. And, to train others to do the same.
