    What is the best way you've been able to find out who is on the HOA board and who to talk to? Is there a state list? I've just been stoping in a neighborhood and asking somebody who to talk to. Is there a better / easier way?

    They will likely register some sort of entity (corp, LLC, etc.) with your secretery of state, so if you can do a search of those records for things containing HOA or homeowners, etc. you can develop a list. However, that will lead you to a registered agent, who will need to be contacted to find the name of a board president, then you'll have to determine where it is in relation to your accounts, whether or not they have community common grounds, etc. So I'd say you're already using the most efficient method. When you see a group of homes that look like they're sharing grounds, you stop, you ask and you've spent a lot less time and energy getting the same information.

    Hi Branchland,

    Do you know anyone who lives in the area of the HOA? Do you know any local realtors? Asking around should help you get to the president fairly fast.

    Scan the yellow pages for 'property management' companies. Remember most homeowners associations utilize a property management firm. The best property management firm will manage the more lucrative accounts!

    Their is bull in any situation. Rise above your competition and learn to deal with the 'bull' tactfully.
