Paula Marshall, Community Association Manager
Paula has been managing homeowners associations since signing on with HMC 30 years ago. She has managed as many as 12 associations concurrently in the past. These days, Paula is semi-retired and manages four small associations, which allows her to work mainly from home. She particularly likes being a portfolio manager because of the inherent autonomy afforded in being an advisor to several different ‘businesses’, each with a different personality. Each community, be it made up of single family homes, townhomes or condominiums, has different needs which makes each of them unique.
Paula equates her job to that of an air traffic controller at times: one definitely has to be able to multi-task in order to do this type of work successfully. On any given day there are a number of planes trying to take off and land at the same time. A manager’s job is to keep track of all of them and help them get where they need to go. Multi-tasking and follow-up is the name of this game.
