Making the Place Where You Live
a Better Place to Live!
Greetings!
 
We are excited to introduce you to our first e-newsletter.   We continually look for ways to enhance communications with our board members and homeowners.   We will be bringing you important information about your property, association updates, and helpful tips on a regular basis.   You may or may not know that your association management company, LMI Management, Inc. also makes available a full range of home improvement and maintenance services.   We look forward to your feedback.
 
Chuck Glover, President

ASSOCIATION MANAGMENT

  • LMI is wrapping up the annual inspections on the condominium properties and preparing for budget time.  Your association manager is already in the process of gathering quotes for budgeting purposes on the more expensive items such as snow removal, landscaping and fertilization as well as less expensive items such as pest control, pool contracts and pond maintenance.  Budgets will be presented to all Board members in the fall. 
  • CAI (Community Associations Institute) held their fall luncheon and vender exhibit on Friday, August 13, 2010.   Chuck Glover, LMI President, serves on the Board of Directors for CAI's Northeastern Ohio Chapter.  He attended the event along with Donna McCrory, Office Manager; and Association Managers Lisa Flynn & Georgette Mangan.  LMI is active in CAI in order to monitor industry changes and utilize its continuing education opportunities.
  • As you may be aware, AAFS is LMI 's bank of choice for the associations we manage.  The guest speaker at the CAI event was Craig Huntington of AAFS (Alliance Association Financial Services), who began his career in association management in 1980 before becoming President of AAFS.  Craig is also a well-respected and distinguished industry and motivational speaker.  
  • You may note that we are now referring to Lake Management, Inc. as LMI.   The LMI Group encompasses LMI Management, LMI Construction and LMI Maintenance.
  • We have revised our website at www.LMIOhio.com.   Please check it out and let us know if you have any questions.

HOME IMPROVEMENT

LMI AT WORK
 
basement
 "A customer recently wanted a basement upgrade.  The basement was basically a dark gray area for the washer and dryer. We sealed and framed the walls, added a drop ceiling and new wiring.  We added cabinets to the laundry area and converted empty space into a half bath and a TV/Game Room.   New carpeting and soft lighting created an additional warm, functional living space for the homeowner." 
-- Rick Tomlinson, Maintenance and Construction Division Mgr.
