Philosophy

Banner showing images having to do with Dobbin Management's governing philosophy

Dobbin Management is a property/community association management firm that specializes in condominiums: we organize and administrate financial books, carry out long-range planning, budgets, projects and maintenance and provide 24/7 emergency services to a limited number of clients.

 

What that means, in operation, is that we help people with the business of their lives and homes. We help communities work together for a common good.

 


1. If It Is Worth Doing, It Is Worth Doing Correctly

 

Every project, every task, every process is made up of a series of small actions. Each one of those actions is a link in a chain that leads to the resolution of the issue at hand. It is an old piece of wisdom, about chains being only as strong as their weakest link. Old, but no less true for its age.

Every detail counts, because every detail is a part of the whole.

At Dobbin Management, we take this principle to heart. Every phone call answered, every issue logged and addressed, every email — every everything — is a reflection of our commitment to provide a sound, valuable service to our clients and customers.

Taking care of the small details with pride and commitment means that the large issues are addressed properly and with satisfaction.

 


2. Even With Our Separate Lives, We're All In It Together

 

Boards of Directors, and the associations they represent are, at the end of the day, a group of people, sharing spaces in which they live their separate lives: Different people with different perspectives and opinions, all living in an area in which they have a common interest.

We try to approach all of our communities with an eye toward that understanding. People will be different and have different approaches and maybe even conflicting viewpoints, but common goals.

We see our job as managers as keeping the vision and the idea that the goals and interests that bind everyone together are greater than the differences that might put them at odds.

Everyone in a community wants to live their lives and raise their families. They want their homes to be kept up and improved upon. They want the organization to be financially stable and reliable. They want a fair and even application of rules.

We try to keep this idea present that despite our differences, we're all in it together and that fostering cooperation and progress is always the best game plan

 


3. Crisis Situations Don't Follow Business Hours

 

A lot of what we do follows a standard 9 to 5 routine. Processing forms, keeping records, paying bills; administrating and clerical work.

But some of what we do doesn't follow a clock or Holiday schedules. We're on call 24 hours a day because we need to be to provide service to our clients when they need it. We have lived in condos and in communities; we understand that urgent matters occur, oftentimes, at all hours, and they need to be addressed urgently.

We're there when you need us.

 


4. Good Enough Isn't Good Enough

 

Your community is your home. And when work is done for your home, you want it to be quality work that will last. We strive to make sure that whatever we do for your community — in maintenance, in budget preparation, in landscaping, in anything — is not just "good enough." That's where you live. It should be the best it could be, for the best price we can get. We try hard to make that happen.
