Did you know that more than 63 million people are residents of communities with a homeowner’s association? That means 24 percent of U.S. homes are in community associations. This month we had the opportunity to learn more homeowners associations by talking with Troy Modlin.  From Troy, we’ll learn about his company, his background and why he chose Lakeside Executive Suites.

Tell us about your company and what you do?

Troy’s Property Management Group is a property management company the focuses our attention on homeowner associations and condo’s.   Part of the management includes payables, receivables and monthly financials, in addition to managing all of the independent contractors that the community hires.

How did you get started in your industry?

I started in 2006 working out of Cooper City.  TPMG was started in February of 2014 managing 4 HOA’s in Weston that I currently continue to manage.  After moving to Weston in 2004 a friend of mine asked me if I would be interested in property management since, he worked for a company.  Our conversations sparked my interest.  Once I began working in management, I was immediately approached by many different associates & vendors about starting my own company.  I was told on numerous occasions that what I was providing to my communities is special and stood out amongst the competition.  After many years of encouragement and small loans from my father and friends, I took a leap of faith and purchased the accounts I was managing from my old company.  In addition, I was able to retain the employment of my assistant Tina Franco who also took a leap of faith to follow me in my endeavor.  Since 2014 I can honestly say that each day is a blessing and I have never been happier.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

Most homeowner’s living in a community do not realize that management is not the enemy and work at the board of director’s direction.  At TPMG we strive to provide personal communication with everyone.  We do our best to provide a human voice and interaction with the homeowners on a daily basis.  As the owner of the company it is my goal to provide solutions to issues and communicate them to the owners and the Board of Directors.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

Our goal in 5 years is to be able to provide the same high-quality service as we do today without diluting our core mission of serving the communities in Weston and the surrounding area.

Tell me about yourself?

I was born in NYC and grew up in Great Neck, Long Island.   I am very proud of my background of being a graduate from Boston University and attending New York Law School.  I live in Weston with my wife Tammy and my two boys Charlie (15) and Shane (10) who have gone to school in Weston.  I am also a proud member of B’nai Aviv and served on the Board of Directors for five years. 

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I am passionate about my children and my family.  My oldest son is a freshman at Western High School and is the clean-up hitter on JV.  As a former Division 1 Baseball Player at Boston University, it makes me very proud that he chose to follow in my footsteps. 

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

Most of my activities outside of work involve my kids.  We love to go fishing and do watersport activities.  Every Sunday you will find me playing Basketball at B’nai Aviv.

Why did you choose Lakeside and how has working here helped your business?

There were several options I looked into before deciding on Lakeside Executive Suites.  However, I was sold the first day I came here to visit a friend of mine here.   The very friendly receptionist answered all of my questions and provided amazing energy and customer service.  That person was Ysel Hernandez.  Why do I continue to appreciate Lakeside?  Simply because it is like a family atmosphere that is close to home.  Anytime I have a question or issue, the staff has a solution.
