Our community is searching for a new management company to help the Board of Directors manage the subdivision. We are a large subdivision located in the Southaven area. Does anyone have recommendations for companies they have worked with or warnings about companies we should steer clear of?

When we were looking for a place to build 8 years ago, Dickens Place had the only active HOA in the neighborhoods we looked at. That was one of the deciding factors in not building there. We built in another Bridgeforth developed area near there.

So you have a problem living in a community with an HOA? I have found that they are great. They plan community get togethers--like cookouts, progressive dinners, family days etc. They also help to make sure the neighborhood is maintained--that folks keep the grass cut, don't park junk cars etc. Everything looks great and property values don't suffer.

Yes I have a problem with HOA's. We have a list of covenants less than 1/2 page that covers different aspects of this neighborhood. Most are common sense items like no livestock. You can't keep an El Camino on cinder blocks in your front yard. Other items help with the look of the neighborhood like fence, driveway and mailbox cosmetics. A few people have broken the rules on the fence and mailbox but it will have to be corrected when their house is sold. One item "outlawed" satellite dishes. I had lived in my house for about 12 hours when I installed mine. The FCC OTARD document trumps HOA rules every time.

We have had neighborhood meetings where we agreed on a few things like who would take care of the flowers in front of the neighborhood signs. The families that take care of them have never asked for reimbursement. But it has never gone beyond that because we all agree that we don't want to go before the HOA to have the color of our curtains approved. That is overstepping authority.

Yes, we hired Level 1 Management from Memphis, but they do handle several communities in MS. They are organized, are great with reports and financial documents. The don't send anything out without checking with the board. They are friendly and very positive in their communications with the homeowners--just what we were looking for!
