CCMC Community Partner Northwest Landscaping Receives Marana Branding Iron Award

Based on a nomination from the teams at Gladden Farms and Saguaro Bloom, Northwest Landscaping has been named the recipient of the Marana Branding Iron Award.

Each year, the town council of Marana in southern Arizona awards to Branding Iron Awards, one to an individual who has made a significant impact on the community and the other to a business who exemplifies community partnership.

Hill Country Retreat’s Clay Hadick Named Outstanding Homeowner Leader

Each year, the Community Associations Institute selects Outstanding Community Leaders from a field of more than 2 million homeowner volunteers serving on their community’s Board or committees. We’re proud to announce Clay Hadick, a Board member at Hill Country Retreat in San Antonio, as one of this year’s recipients.

Nominated by their community association peers, colleagues and community managers, award recipients exemplify service to their communities. CAI received more than 150 nominations for this year’s recognition. Clay has served on the Hill Country Retreat Board of Directors, where he serves as vice president, for more than two years and has played an integral part in ensuring the community’s continued success.

During Clay’s time on the Board, the community’s reserve fund increased from $480,000 to $1.2 million and the community received back-to-back honors as recipient and runner-up of the Community of the Year award from the San Antonio Chapter of the Community Associations Institute. In addition to serving on the Board, Clay is also active as a resident in the community, participating in a number of community clubs, including Veterans, Brew Crew, men’s softball and pickleball.

Outside of his role on the Board, Clay co-founded and served as chair of the NW 151 Annexation Group, which advocated for the residents of the Alamo Ranch Property Owners Association to vote to be annexed into the city of San Antonio or to remain as unincorporated Bexar County. This effort ultimately saved homeowners more than $1,000 annually in average city taxes.

“A collaborative spirit and shared vision are critical to developing a successful partnership between CCMC and the Boards we serve,” said Neil Bresnahan, Hill Country Retreat community manager. “Clay represents these values to the highest degree. His commitment to our community and to ensuring we maintain the best quality of life possible for our residents has helped position us for continued success now and in the future. I am grateful for his service to Hill Country Retreat and excited for him to receive much-deserved recognition on a national level.”

CCMC Providing Management Services to Las Sendas

CCMC expands its presence in Phoenix’s East Valley with the addition of Las Sendas. This premier, established community includes 3,400 homes and offers healthy lifestyle opportunities, multi-generational activities and superior services to homeowners in a comfortable, beautifully maintained desert environment.

Our relationship with Las Sendas began about a year ago, when board president Jeff Brugos contacted division president Delores Ferguson. The two remained in touch through the summer and fall, when CCMC was invited to compete for the community’s management services contract, which we recently officially received. CCMC began serving the community April 1.

“There are so many people who contributed to this win,” Delores said. “I am so thankful for the time, effort and positive attitude everyone demonstrated throughout this entire process. Las Sendas is an excellent addition to our portfolio, and we are very much looking forward to working with the Board and entire community.”

“This partnership with Sterling Ranch is a win for both the community and CCMC,” said Western Division president Delores Ferguson. “Years after our first discussions with the Sterling Ranch team, this relationship has become a reality, which is a testament to CCMC’s commitment to developing connections throughout the areas we serve.

CCMC Opens New Market Office in Northern Utah

CCMC expands our presence in the northern Utah market with the addition of a new office in Draper, about 20 minutes south of Salt Lake City. Located in a shared workspace environment, the new office currently houses vice president Chris DeLong and two portfolio managers.

“Residential development here is just going through the roof,” Chris said of the Utah region. “They say this place is going to double in size in the next 20 years; I’ll be shocked if it takes that long.”

Having an office presence in the area helps connect our team with current and potential clients, Chris said. In the short time since relocating, he’s been able to begin developing relationships with several developers and demonstrating the value of partnering with CCMC for community management services.

“The Suncrest and Daybreak teams have created a strong CCMC presence here locally, especially with showcasing our culture and commitment to the surrounding community,” Chris said. “They’ve educated developers on our own brand of community management, which is much more than collecting assessments and community standards. We’ve become strategic partners helping build communities through our steadfast commitment to first-class and innovative customer service.”

The new office is located at 13894 S. Bangerter Parkway, Ste. 200, Draper Utah, 84020. The phone number is 801-679-2250.
