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.

"Using Smart Property to track our condominium’s reserve and funding requirements has been invaluable. The program allows you to make assumptions to best provide your board with costing and funding needs.
I highly encourage every HOA board to make use of this program."
Mike Hogan
Board Member
"SmartProperty lets you forget about your dated, hard-copy spreadsheet and brings you into the new world of real-time planning and management.
It’s the best capital planning tool I’ve ever seen."
Vince Rapolla
General Manager
“SmartProperty is allowing me to conduct “what if” analysis on our Reserve study in real time, without the clumsy old process of submitting marked up reports and waiting for a response.
I was able to evaluate all my proposed changes in a day, rather than a couple of weeks!
Jim McCorkle
Board President
"The Smart Property software is a real lifesaver for HOAs and their managers. The software provides live data and allows end users to update their asset data throughout the year. What I enjoy most is the ability to name and organize your assets."
Ryan Figley
General Manager
