News and Announcements

When FRONTSTEPS hung out its shingle and the teams were being built out, a set of Core Values was established. The values aren't just for show but rather, the tenants (Develop our People, Take Care of the Customer at all Times, Move with Purpose and Urgency, Be Open, Honest, & Transparent, Innovate and Fail Forward, and Be Courageous) strongly influence everything we do to make this company amazing. Last night we honored some special FRONTSTEPPERS for just this. 

Anyone can sell you a website. Lots of companies can also offer you document storage if you’re a PMC or HOA.  And as an HOA or PMC, you need both of these. Many states have laws mandating that residents have access to financial records, so hosting HOA fiscal documents, meeting minutes, and information like neighborhood rules and architectural regulations is not only lawful but it’s smart—transparency is key. Ok, so you’ve got all that done. Why is the relationship between HOAs and residents still broken? Introducing the New FRONTSTEPS Platform.

Condo owners and HOA managers in the Land of Lincoln should take note. Illinois House Bill 189 was signed by Governor Bruce Rauner on August 24. The law adds several requirements to the Illinois Condominium Property Act and while the law doesn’t take effect until January 1, 2018, it’s best to get prepared now. Here are a few of the changes and how FRONTSTEPS HOA software can help you stay compliant.

My neighbor is moving.

His partner died a few years ago and he’s been living all alone in his big, beautiful house, his voice echoing in the grand entryway. This summer, he decided it was time to downsize. A new family is moving in and all the neighbors are planning a dual farewell-welcome brunch for both parties. (I’m bringing banana bread.) In places like Miami, London, New York, and California, however, this Hail and Farewell routine isn’t always the case.
