What is C.O.R.E.?

Commonly Owned Real Estate Services

John and Doug had a vision, to offer condominium and homeowner associations a service dedicated to fraud detection and elimination.  Their years of practice has provided far too many examples of poor behavior and outright actions which were detrimental to associations.  

C.O.R.E. is focused on the belief that fraud can be detected and prevented.  To detect and prevent fraud requires a dedication to process, documentation and education.  These three core areas are passions for all members of the C.O.R.E. team.

Our vision is simple: money can be protected.  It requires constant vigilance, a dedication to perfection, and a willingness to re-evaluate processes to find new ways to safeguard association money.  We believe our system can deliver this successfully and at a scale which can't be matched by any management company with its own internal accounting department.
