They are our HOA, and NOT doing a very good job. In fact - their phone number isn't even in service! We have no way to contact them except submitting an email online.

You won't get a return e-mail. Their number is disconnected and I e-mailed two weeks ago and haven't heard anything back. Their website is a dead link now as well. Crazy thing is I talked to someone on the phone about 5 weeks ago!

Hey they are my HOA too, I live in Buck Creek Village, I went to their office in late December and it is BARE. Not even an office chair in there! It looks like they have closed up shop! I got a letter back in November telling me to send in my dues...but I am not going to now!

The company is not licensed to manage homeowners associations.

They are being investigated by the District Attorney's office

I am on the board for a neighborhood that Elite manages. I am concerned with your comment. How and where can I verify this information?

Anyone in the state of Indiana who manages more than 4 properties is required to have a Broker's License. This requires the company to comply with all trust accounts and they are subject to audit.

Contact the Real Estate Commission and they will confirm this. To confirm the District Attorney is investigating contact the District Attorney's Office.

Talk to your attorney for the association. He should be able to tell you what is going on.

Our community was managed by Affordable. Awful experience!! We have changed to a smaller management company that are HANDS ON, RETURN phone calls, SERVICE orientated, do an outstanding mowing job & are a real support / contribution to our subdivision.
With this company, we have a HEALTHY reserve account & have been able to implement many programs / improvements in our community. We have just resigned their contract for another THREE years.
If any of you would like to experience what it is like to have a professional management company run your community, please contact me & I will be more than happy to provide additional information.

I have checked into this, and was told by the Attorney General Office this is completely False. they are not investigating them nor are they violating any laws.

I have checked this out and unless you are actually handling the sale or listing of realestate you are not required to carry a brokers licence. I am also being told that Private Management Companies do not need this as long as they are not listing or showing properties owned by anyone other than them. I have verified this with the Attorney Generals Office and our HOA Lawyer.

Per Indiana Attorney General: All companies that do business in Indiana must register with the Secretary of State.
I cannot find Elite as being listed with Secretary of State.
We have a few other business's that are doing business for our HOA that are not listed as well.
How do you know that a company is a reputable company with qualifications, liability insurance etc if no one can find them listed anywhere. I've checked BBB & there is no record of them existing there either.. Any advise??

Affordable/Elite manages our neighborhood as well and it has gone downhill since they took over. Our common areas, ponds, etc are not properbly maintained and trash is littered everywhere. I don't know how they stay in business. Surely, there are good management companies out there.

Did they give you this information without your
completing a claim form. When I called and requested this info Ms. Martinez forwarded a
complaint form that had to be completed and
returned before they could give out this info.

Much less than Elite. They don't doa very good job of maintaining common areas or snow removal. I hope they are at least maintaining insurance for the common areas. I think it is time for my HOA to find a new management corp.
