President and Co-Founder of Beacon Management Services Lisa Simmons is in the studio for today’s episode of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio. Joined by co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick, the group discusses what the management company does, the type of clients it services, how it sets itself apart from other management services and more on this All About Real Estate segment of Radio.
Simmons has been in real estate for several years, starting with a large commercial real estate development company located in Atlanta. Simmons has worked on a number of fantastic commercial real estate properties, as well as retail properties throughout metro Atlanta. In 2003, Simmons earned her sales license and started working for Beazer Homes for five years. After the housing crisis in 2008, she redirected her career toward management and in 2011 co-founded Beacon Management Services.
Beacon Management Services is a property management company specializing in community associations or homeowners associations (HOA). Beacon Management represents several different kinds of properties including HOAs, condominium associations, commercial properties, mixed-use developments and more. Beacon Management Services works in every major county throughout metro Atlanta from the urban core to the suburbs.
Currently, Beacon Management Services is working with several well-known clients including Century Communities, Lennar Homes, D.R. Horton, Jim Jacobi, Walton Communities and Kolter Homes, to name a few. With experience not only with small-custom builders but also nationally-known companies, Beacon Management Services has the skills, reputation and experience to take on all types of clients.
“Generally, we’ve gotten more and more builder business as the years have gone by and now we have quite a large portfolio of new homes and new home construction,” Simmons said. “We’re busy with new construction and we’re busy with condo development. There is a lot of that taking place in Midtown especially.”
Currently, Beacon Management Services is managing over 35,000 units and was recently listed by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of the top 10 management companies for the fifth straight year.
“We’re really proud of the growth but it’s been organized and controlled growth, it’s not growth for growths sake,” Simmons said. “We want to do an excellent job for all of our customers and for our clients, so we just don’t take any property unless we know we can do an exceptional job there.”
With plenty of first-hand experience with builders, Beacon Management Services not only understands the sales and management side of the business but also the construction aspects as well. Because of this, it can better predict potential issues and take strides to solve them before they even arise. In addition, Beacon Management knows how to make every new homeowner feel welcome and at home in their new community.
