Why I Founded SmartProperty
Damian Esparza, Founder
I’ve been in this business for almost 20 years now and have been doing reserve studies since 2001. Over that time I’ve had the chance to work with thousands of community association boards and community association managers across the country
As I did, I started seeing a recurring pattern.
A problem that was highly frustrating to both my customers and me: reserve studies with missing components, that were hard to read (even for experts like me), and funding recommendations that didn’t reflect the work the board was planning to do.
Almost every time, this led to hidden surprises like fee increases, negative hits to their percent funded, special assessments, and increased liability exposure for boards who’re on the hook with a fiduciary to maintain.
If your information is buried in out-dated spreadsheets or previous board members’ inboxes… It’s nearly impossible to quickly see if your numbers work.
So I started working on new ways to manage capital reserves. I knew we were on to something when we helped a community association save their homeowners $20 per month in fee increases.
This is why I started SmartProperty.
We’re a Reserve Study and Software company that helps community associations avoid hidden surprises, protect their assets, and reduce liability. At the same time, we make community association manager’s lives easier by taking admin tasks off of their plate and helping boards make faster decisions.
With SmartProperty — everyone wins: board members, community association managers, and homeowners.
