“We raise a toast to the hundreds of clients, vendors and our many valued colleagues who have contributed to our success.”
CMA, a Plano-based association management company, celebrated 35 years in business by hosting an event for its Very Important Partners, its clients, employees and vendors. CMA is the premier community association management company in North Texas. Locally owned and headquartered in Plano, the company has managed top residential developments and owner-controlled associations since its founding in 1983.
“We’re delighted to continue this incredible journey, as well as pause to appreciate our opportunities and good fortune,” said Judi Phares, president and CEO of the company. “Establishing long term relationships is the cornerstone of what we’ve achieved. We raise a toast to the hundreds of clients, vendors and our many valued colleagues who have contributed to our success.”
CMA’s steady business growth has been driven partly by building strong partnerships with clients, while earning a reputation for excellent professional management services. A diverse, blue ribbon roster of distinguished master-planned homeowner and mixed-use properties comprise its portfolio, now numbering more than 82,000 units.
The company has earned national industry awards for exceptional business ethics and has been recognized for numerous leadership roles in CAI (Community Associations, Institute, Inc.) and throughout the industry.
Over the years technology, office space and some of the people have changed; the values have not. The company’s mission has been to protect property values and enhance the quality of life, by being both servant leaders as well as giving back in support of numerous community charities and non-profits.
“We’re making a difference for homeowners and the communities we serve, some of which we have managed since the 80s,” said Judi. “As a company, we care about the associations we manage. We live here and enjoy serving this vibrant, thriving area.”
