How our Property Management Solutions Help Your Community

Your home is important to you and your family. It’s a huge financial investment and we know you spend a great deal of time and energy making it a nice place to raise your family. We invest the same amounts of time and energy on maintaining your community. Our property management teams work closely with your association board members to better understand the unique needs of your community and provide the right services to meet those needs.
FirstService Residential delivers professional property management to Minnesota communities of many shapes and sizes, including:

Community Associations & HOAs

Our goals are the same whether your community is made up of townhomes, single-family homes, condominiums, or is a cooperarive or master-planned community association. We want you and your neighbors get the most out of your community every day. We try to match the right team for each property, so managers and board members can create the best solutions. From budget preparation and financial planning to community communication and around-the-clock customer service, FirstService Residential will always do what’s right for your community.

Townhome Communities

Townhomes have a lot in common with single-family homes and condos, but also have differences that make them unique properties to manage. We put decades of experience to work making your townhome community a great place for everyone to live. We offer complete financial services to maximize your association funds, including access to the best available negotiated rates on services like insurance, banking and cable. We’ll attend board meetings and respond quickly to questions and concerns from residents and board members through timely emails and our 24/7 Customer Care Center.

Condominium Associations

We know what your condo association needs to run at its best. Our team of condominium managers has spent years helping condo communities like yours deliver the best living experience to their residents. We’ll streamline your operations and optimize your operating budget with a strategy designed for your association’s specific needs. We will keep your common areas looking great and negotiate the best rates for important services like trash removal, cable and elevator maintenance.

Single-Family Homes

Throughout the Twin Cities suburbs, FirstService Residential understands the needs of single-family homeowners associations. We’ll maintain common areas and community amenities like clubhouses, swimming pools, trails and open spaces. We can also keep costs in line by negotiating with current or new vendors for third-party services like insurance, lawn care and waste removal.

Master-Planned Neighborhoods

Your master-planned community offers you programs and activities that make it a unique place to live. Our management teams are experienced in maintaining your complex amenities so residents can enjoy them, while making sure your board members have all the tools they need to keep your finances running smoothly. We’ll make managing your community a breeze!


FirstService Residential delivers best-in-class service to co-op properties throughout the Twin Cities. We make sure all of your amenities are maintained with routine inspections and preventative maintenance programs. We’ll handle relationships with all your vendors and contractors and help you navigate local co-op laws and building codes.

Active Adult Communities

Today’s seniors are enjoying longer, healthier and more active lives than ever before. And more than ever, many older adults are choosing to live in 55 and better communities, where they can enjoy features, amenities and recreational facilities tailored to their active lifestyles. 
No other association management company understands the unique needs and goals of today’s Active Adult communities better than FirstService Residential.  As Minnesota’s leading provider of 55+ association management services, we offer decades of experience in this unique sector, including specialized expertise in lifestyle and amenity management.
