Dacy Flynt has always emphasized the vendor vetting process as incredibly important to the success of a homeowners association management firm. In this regard, laziness or second-rate attempts will not due. The key for an association management firm, Flynt maintains, is to find the right vendors for the various services through a reliable method. Potential vendors are basically a mine-field of mistakes, errors, and customer-infuriating issues. In order to avoid this, Dacy Flynt has always sought out help from outside sources for finding vendors. Ideally, you want to be able to work with vendors you already know and trust. But if this is not possible, work with vendors someone else knows and trusts. This means checking with manufactures to see if they have vetted contractors they would suggest, checking professional directories like Angie's List or the Better Business Bureau, or checking with other associations or communities in the area to see who it is they are using. Dacy Flynt knows as the General Manager of the Charlotte Area for Association Management Group that experience and familiarity count for something in that induustry.
