Our story began when founder Todd Gschwend decided to serve on his own homeowner association board, eventually leading it as board president for several years, only to experience frustration and disappointment with the managing agent. Something stirred inside him, believing there had to be a better way. No more hidden fees or questionable accounting entries. No more empty promises and lack of follow-through. No more frustrated neighbors.
This belief fueled a passion to create a firm that was distinctively different. A firm that provides community associations a managing agent who is committed to openness and true partnership.
With that, 4Sight Property Management was born, with its primary focus on neighborhood management of existing communities. We continue to grow, expanding into developer services for newly established properties and residential property management. Our passion remains the same which is to openly lead and serve each of our clients as business partners with the growth and prosperity of their community as our priority.
The 4Sight Difference
Our name, 4Sight, expresses our approach to handling the business of property management. Yet, the very nature of this business is about relationships. We are proud to establish strong partnerships with our clients to develop viable, prosperous communities. Here’s how we accomplish this and what sets us apart.
We’re transparent. You’ll never be kept in the dark. There are no hidden charges or mark-ups in what we do. All expenses are itemized. Management fees are fixed so you’re not stuck with unexpected increases.
We’re above-board. Every client has the opportunity to approve payables prior to dispersion of funds. Typically, a property management company has full authority to write checks to vendors, including themselves, without prior approval.
We’re partners. While we may carry the load, you are always in control. We keep you informed and consulted on every decision. We’ll keep you legally in check and steer you away from potentially challenging situations.
We’re flexible. We focus on what you need, not what we want, expecting you to conform to a set of standard policies and procedures. There is no blanket approach; we customize our services based on your specific needs.
We’re reliable. We handle all requests promptly and to completion. It sounds obvious, but it apparently is not so easily achieved by our competitors.
We’re consistent. With relationships being a priority at 4Sight, once one is established, it remains. We do not make frequent changes to staffing or property managers. You’ll know the people managing your property.
The 4Sight team is dedicated to understanding and meeting the needs of our clients. Our ownership team is very hands-on and involved with each property, ensuring that it is supported by a community manager, accounting staff, homeowner service representatives, and administrative personnel.
With several staff members having completed or working towards the AMS and CMCA designations from the Community Associations Institute (CAI), our team is committed to education and leadership within the industry. Furthermore, with our membership of CAI and other organizations like Professional Landcare Network (PLANET), we proudly provide resources from these affiliations to maintain a high level of service.
Additionally, our owner and President, Todd Gschwend, is a Licensed Real Estate Agent with knowledge and experience in the real estate market. And several staff are licensed irrigators and certified pool operators.
