Belle Plaza Condominium couldn’t have a more picturesque setting, a plush condo community situated in the sun-kissed Venetian Islands in Miami Beach.

Belle Plaza Condominium is home to more than 400 residents who are now all happy Speed Queen multi-housing equipment users, thanks to Aaxon’s multi-housing service team.

Jose Alvarez, a property manager at Belle Plaza Condominium represented by FirstService Residential, chose to work with Aaxon to serve his community over the competitor. “Aaxon’s whole team, including the service mechanics, are extremely helpful, and the quality of service and machines are as promised,” Jose explains.

Belle Plaza’s laundry rooms underwent the ultimate facelift when Aaxon replaced all 27 washers and 27 dryers with new Speed Queen commercial laundry equipment. Residents can now enjoy using the highest quality of multi-housing laundry equipment for their daily laundering needs.

“We anticipate doing business with you again and would recommend Aaxon to other buildings. Keep up the good work!” exclaims Jose.

Animals and the community. South Florida Property Management Service Dog New dialogue about emotional support and service animals has been a hot topic for many communities   A hot topic of conversation in the real estate condominium communities in Coral Springs, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, and Delray Beach is the recent Florida House of Representatives approval of bill HB 849 regarding service animals and emotional support animals. The bill was approved this past week and will become effective July 1st 2014. The senate companion bill, SB 1146, by Sen. Altman, has not been heard in committee yet. The bill is intended to protect residents with service dogs. The piece that is relevant to the South Florida property management industry is it will provide, “…equal access to housing accommodations for individual with disability accompanied by emotional support animal; provides conditions under which landlord may request documentation of qualifying disability…” The concern with the bill is the definition of “service animal”. There has been an unfortunate new trend where residents are fraudulently obtaining service animal status for their pets. There are no strict regulations or specific language giving punishment to persons who assist residents in fraudulently obtaining a service animal or emotional support pet. Fraudulent certifications and animal vests are available online for a small fee without any proof of training. The law requires two things to be considered a “service animal”. Those requirements are to be able to answer two questions; Is the dog trained to perform a task for a disability? What is the task the dog is trained to perform? Establishments, such as housing accommodations in South Florida, cannot ask additional questions without risking a possible lawsuit. The ADA had amended this law back in 2010 to better protect people with disabilities and their service animals, but unfortunately because of the broad scope of the law there may need to be some adjustments made to prevent abuse of the law. Concern about the terminology of the bill will be discussed at the upcoming committee meeting for the senate companion bill SB 1146. For condominium communities with tight pet restrictions, this topic has fostered heated conversations, arguments and even threatened lawsuits for both self managing property owners as well as property management companies in Palm Beach, Coral Springs, Delray Beach and other areas of Broward County. What provisions are currently allowed in your condo building? Does your board of directors need to revisit the allowances for emotional support and service animals? It can be tough to balance between protecting residents with service dogs and following the rules in place.    …

The opportunity an HOA can capitalize on is negotiating a cell tower lease agreement that ensures consistent rent for years, often decades, to come.

Companies like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint continue to explore options to meet their wireless customer demands, and part of this search includes the construction of new cell sites across the United States. Cell sites come many sizes, from a traditional tower that is big enough to climb, to an antenna that sits hidden on a rooftop, only seen by those flying over.

Cell phone usage has skyrocketed to the point of near saturation in the US. According to Pew Research Center, 95% of adults have a cell phone & a growing share of Americans now use smartphones as their primary means of online access at home. In 2016, wireless subscribers’ connections hit 377.9 million, with over $1.4 trillion (yep, trillion with a “t”) having been invested globally in the last 18 years. This is BIG business & there are opportunities for landowners to capitalize.

The opportunity an HOA can capitalize on is negotiating a cell tower lease agreement that ensures consistent rent for years, often decades, to come. There are certain pros and cons that an HOA or Condo Association must ponder if a cell tower company or wireless carrier approaches them about putting a tower on their property.

ANNUAL MEETING TIPS FOR ASSOCIATIONS

by Enrolled Agent Steven J. Weil, Ph.D., EA, LCAM, Royale Management Services, Inc.

 

As associations plan their annual meetings, these reminders and specific steps will be useful.

The annual meeting is a membership meeting in which every member can and should participate. Participation comes through properly-made motions, seconds, taking part in the discussion of motions and through voting.

The first order of business he is to appoint the chairperson to run the meeting.  The chairperson can be anyone who the members agree should chair the meeting.  In many associations the board president chairs the meeting; however, this requires approval of the members. Some associations ask their manager or attorney to chair the meeting.  This is acceptable as long as it is approved by the membership.  In large associations having a professional chair the meeting can help to keep it on track and see that the required business gets done properly.

A motion as to who shall chair the meeting can be made by any member of the association.  This motion must be seconded and then voted on by the members present. If the motion is approved by a majority of the member’s present, the chairperson is elected for the meeting.

Is it time to Clean your Air Conditioning Air Ducts and Filters.

Is it time to Clean your Air Conditioning Air Ducts and Filters.

  • Posted: Sep 16, 2017

  • Comments: Comments Off on Is it time to Clean your Air Conditioning Air Ducts and Filters.

With the passing of IRMA, We suggest cleaning your air ducts and change filters.

Sitting water causes mold even when your home’s Electric has been off for a while the humid air can cause ducts and filters to collect water. We think the best way to protect your family from health concerns is to Clean Duct work and A/C Systems Filter Replacement.

A wise person told me a while back “Change your Filter every time you pay your Electric Bill” I like this but we don’t think you have to do this monthly, But Every 2 months this should be completed.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends cleaning air ducts when:

• You suspect mold exists in the air ducts.

• You notice a vermin infestation somewhere in the home, or you see insects or rodents entering or exiting ductwork.

• You see a visible “poof” of dust released from the supply registers when air is exiting the vents.

Experts recommends taking a look inside your air vent register. “If you notice black debris around the outside, that’s pollutants that have been recycled through the system over and over again, and that’s a sign your system is excessively soiled,” he says. “Also, take a look at your system when you change your filter. If there’s a lot of dust buildup in that area, that’s another sign you’re overdue for a cleaning.”

Our A/C systems do a good job of removing this humidity. But over time, the damp air — combined with dust and debris that get past the air filter — begin to accumulate inside the air handler, blower and even through the duct system of the air conditioner. And that provides a breeding ground for mold.

Residences in Hollywood Beach

Sitting atop gorgeous golden sand and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is The Residences on Hollywood Beach condominium, a chic 15-story condominium building off of Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida.

Steven Zamora of Atlantic Pacific Management is the property manager of The Residences and chose Aaxon for his community’s large laundry room retool and upgrade to stainless steel Smart Card-operated machines.

“My experience dealing with Aaxon since the beginning has been beyond spectacular,” says Steven. “From the contract negotiations to the scheduling of removing old equipment and putting in new, to the final completion- everything has gone smoothly!”

Housing more than 2,000 residents with 31 laundry rooms, Aaxon tackled the large-scale project quickly and efficiently.

Aaxon replaced the condominium’s current machines with high-end stainless-steel Speed Queen Quantum Commercial Washers and Dryers equipped with SmartCard technology. The machines will service the entire two-building condominium property.

“The equipment and technology they provided to the building are excellent, above the industry standard. Their commission split is very competitive,” Steven adds. “I highly recommend Aaxon for your laundry business needs.” Watch Steven Zamora’s video testimonial here.
