In a perfect world, every home environment is calm and well managed.  In reality ... 


Co-op housing environments turn over staff, lose lists and can't remember the details of the By-Laws.   Too often, the daily hassles get in the way of the Board doing the very important work of true governance.  Let us move you in the direction of a well managed co-op.


We strive to handle the daily and yearly business in a manner that means relationships can thrive and Boards and committees can focus on the important work of governing people, budgets, by-laws and buildings. 



Colette Shand is a marketing executive who made a mid-career move into the housing industry to help make a difference.  For almost ten years, she has provided reliable, thorough management to co-ops working with Boards of Directors and managers to raise performance.  Why just get by, when you can be dealing with big picture issues like financial stability, property excellence and member engagement? 




Smooth, calm sailing is what we offer our organizations.  Let us deal with the daily business and the special projects that pave the way to a well managed environment.  The kind of environment where members are well-informed and understand their community is fair for everyone.  We serve Boards and managers, encourage volunteers, and help members feel good about their home.
