Dear Valued Homeowner,

 

The first three months of this year have kept your Board of Directors extremely busy.

 

In January, we switched property management companies from AAM to Premier Community Management and with that we gained an experienced manager to oversee our day to day operations with specific emphasis on customer service, oversight of the landscaping company as well as other outside vendors.  In addition, our new manager Mitzi Carley, has established one of my long term goals which was to have a new philosophy on how residents would be treated when an issue or concern developed.  With the previous company, a homeowner often would leave a voice mail which sometimes would take a week or more to get a return call, this would be followed by requests from the manager to provide more details or requests pictures be taken and forwarded.  This often resulted in weeks or months going by without the issue being addressed.  Now, Mitzi or her assistant Cindy promptly return phone calls and then meet face to face with the resident at their home, this results in the issue or concern often being resolved in the same day as the call was received.  The direct feedback that we are receiving is that you not only welcome this new approach, but are very satisfied with the results.   

 

The second major change was switching to a new landscaping company, DLC Resources.  As I have stated, many times via meetings and written communication, your Board will not tolerate contracted companies or vendors who fail to perform to the agreed to terms of a contract.  The main issue we had with AAA Landscaping was not completing the agreed to six week parcel cycle, but also their plan to raise the monthly contract by more than 40% and reduce the parcel cycle, in essence more money for less service.  DLC Resources has continued to work closely with Mitzi and your Board in not only maintaining the landscape within our community, but also designed both a short term and long term proposals to make our community look pleasant and at the same time become better stewards of our water usage.  DLC Resources is also working with the Board on proposals that we will be submitting to the Town of Queen Creek for approval, which will have us look at using more lower water or no water plants and scrubs.

 

The tennis court project which was the last major upgrade needed in our community was completed in January and we are very pleased to see the high usage of both tennis courts since the remodel was completed.  The tennis courts surface uses the colors which have been incorporated into the clubhouse and pool area, which gives us a uniform look.  Your Board recognizes that when a realtor or broker brings potential buyers into our community the first stop is always without exception the clubhouse and associated amenities which include the pool and tennis courts.  Many have commented that this is one of the appealing features to potential home buyers which we have already seen the benefits in homes on the market being sold quicker.

 

On behalf of your five Board of Directors, please know we are honored to work for you and always welcome your e-mails and phone calls.

Landscape Weekly Reports

President's Landscape Update

 

LANDSCAPE  UPDATE    November 30th, 2013

 

By Bill Lehman - President

 

Dear Valued Resident,

 

On Friday, November 29th, the Board of Directors notified AAA Landscaping that the landscape contract between the Villages at Queen Creek and AAA landscaping would be terminated on December 31, 2013.

 

By background, in late May 2012, Cindy Lucas, Community Manager sent out a detailed RFP requesting those landscape companies that were interested to submit a bid do so by mid June 2012.  At the time three landscape companies returned the RFP with a request to be allowed to bid for the community.  Cindy Lucas working in conjunction with the Board and Matt Marchese representating AAA Landscaping met and finalized the bid proposal.  On July 25, 2012 The Association entered into a three year contract with AAA Landscaping which included the set monthly fee to be charged to the Association which was determined by AAA Landscaping.

 

On October 16, 2013, representatives from AAA Landscaping met with the Board of Directors stating that AAA Landscaping was undercharging the association and that the monthly fee would have to be increased.  It must be noted upon further examination that prior to the meeting the Board was not aware that there was an issue relating to the pricing of the landscape contract.  AAA landscaping proposed a completely new pricing structure referred to as Bronze, Silver, and Gold with a dramatic shift in the parcel rotation and the price of the monthly contract.  The Board of Directors was told in this meeting that even though the Villages at Queen Creek and AAA Landscaping had a signed contract through July 24, 2015, it would not be honored by AAA Landscaping.   The Board of Directors found the explanation as completely unacceptable and further would have dramatically increased the monthly landscaping fee by more than 40% over the current signed contract.  This directly would have forced the Board to raise the quarterly assessment due to the increase in the monthly landscape contract, something none of us on the Board were willing to do.

 

After the meeting with AAA Landscaping, the Board of Directors in conjunction with Premier Community Management went to work in re-bidding the landscape contract.  As I have stated to this community before, the Board will not allow any vendor to fail to adhere to their contractual obligation, especially when dealing with a company who has direct control over how our community looks.  The work put in to selecting the new landscape company literally encompassed hundreds of hours, and I am very pleased with our results, as for the first time in over three years we have a landscaping company who views the working relationship with the residents as a partnership and they, like us have a vested interest in ensuring our community is something we as residents can be proud to live in.  I am very pleased to inform you that DLC Resources will assume our landscape contract effective January 1, 2014.

 

In closing,  I would like to thank Board members, Larry Murphy, Sharron Owen, and Landscape Chair Debby Wetzel for working with me on interviewing, checking references, and preparing a detailed contract.

Greetings!

 

Dear Value Homeowners,

Premier Community Management has offered a sign up for Email Statements since January 2014. The number of residents who have signed up for E-Statements is very little (27). The Board of Directors had hoped for more participation with E-statements to reduce the Association cost in postage.

 

We are posting this notice so all homeowners are aware of how to sign up and save the Association valuable dollars. Directions have been attached.

 

If you previously   signed up for the E-statement and you also received one in the mail please contact Mitzi Carley at 480-458-5070 or email her at mcarley@premieraz.com.

 

Larry Murphy

Vice President
