I'm a renter at a Westwind managed property.Gestapo HOA does not even begin to describe Westwind. Had 3 violations so far....., latest is an unsubstantiated disturbing the peace violation....no day, date, time given, just someone accused me and I get a violation. Other two violations were petty and involved spying on our fenced in porch to see unacceptable items (cooler that was drying out after a camping trip for one day!)Phone calls to woman who issues violations are never returned, neither are emails. Won't give any details, yet expects I will just shut up and accept the false accusations. Complaints about owners are largely ignored....convicted sex offenders live on either side of me, currently harassing me and stalking me. HOA claims to not be able to do anything. HOA trumps citizens rights, especially if you are a renter.
I have been an owner in a covenant protected community for the past seven years. Westwind has been our hoa managment company during that entire period. They are in my community every week, they are very responsive to any calls or emails I send them and they truly care about what they do. I lived at another community prior to where I live now and the company managing that associaiton was just the opposite. What a huge difference a good management company makes.
Why Westwind Management Group the best – I was surprised to see negative comments, so had to write a review to give balance. I've been the president of Heather Ridge South HOA since the late 1990s; however, we have used Westwind since the late 1980s. What makes them work for us is its ownership and management teams. If any issues arise, we immediately voice them and things are better. Great communications! Very professional. We believe they care about us as a community, and not as a paycheck. Highly recommend!
home owners and renters beware this company totally sucks – home owners and renters beware this company totaly sucks
Best Management company we have ever had! – I have lived in my association for over 10 years and have been on the board for over 3. Our manager does a great job in follow through on the details and inspections of our property. I learned from the manager how to read and really understand our financial statement and that gives me the tools I need to make good business decisions. A few weeks ago I recieved the budget draft for 2012 and the explanations for how the numbers were determined was awesome. Best budget I have ever seen and it gets better each year. Great group of people to work with!
Manaement is unprofessional and just sucks! – Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!!!!! We just moved in and want to move right back out because of the management! They have done nothing for us but deposit the checks and we have only been here a month! Please do your research before renting! DOES ANYONE HAVE A CORPORATE PHONE NUMBER?
Company doesn't do more than deposit checks – As a renter, I can say that Westwind is terrible. They don't actually do anything. When we have maintenance requests, they call the owner, who calls the guy down the street, who may or may not show up in a timely manner. It's very awkward having the neighbor come over to do our "professional maintenance," so we try not to contact them. Other than depositing our checks and forwarding our requests to the owner, they don't do anything. If we didn't really like the rental property, we would never do business with this company.
Owners & Renters Beware – Westwind took over the property management business of TEL Investments. As owners of multiple rental condos we were happy with TEL as our manager. Then TEL was absorbed by Westwind. TEL was owned by the brother of the owner of Westwind. When Westwind took over TEL service went through the floor. They failed to collect full rent from a tenant that jumped the lease and damaged the property on the way out the door. They are quick to charge rental commissions ... before rent is collected ... and were unaware of the industry standard of escrowing rental deposits. When owners complain about the poor service TEL/Westwind managers ignore the owners or quit. Owners & renters beware of this company.
VERY NIT PICKY, AND POORLY RUN – Board Members are constantly looking to PASS JUDGEMENT on the other residents. They act as if they are far better, than non Board Members. Westwind Management (Lisa Spriggs) takes up way to much time, spending HOA fees to HARASS residents based on Board Members self impossed petty nit picking complaints.
If you find that Westwind is the Management Co. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else to live.
We're sorry you have not had a good experience with your board of directors, however, it is their responsibility to act on the behalf of the best interests of everyone in the community. The board must abide by the covenants which were created to serve the members of the association. If you would like to speak with Lisa regarding the issues you are experiencing, please send her an email at Lisa@westwindmanagement.com.
NOSY BOARD MEMBERS – watch out who your neighbors are, you may be living beside a board member who doubles as a peeping tom and busybody. he has no other hobbies besides looking in your windows and checking out your patio. he monitors every visitor who comes in parking lot. you can't get mail without him following you. he knows everyones comings and goings. he lies about who has been to your home when you aren't there. i began taking pictures of him looking in my windows. it's very scary.
