Betsy BarbieuxConsidered an expert, Betsy Barbieux has the skill and knowledge to guide managers and community association boards in handling the day-to-day operations of their communities and at the same time deal with different communication styles, difficult personalities, and conflict. Effective communication and efficient management are her goals.

Betsy Barbieux, Professional Development Coach, and licensed CAM, has worked with thousands of community association managers, staff, and directors. She is the champion for those who want winning relationships with their boards, residents, staff, and vendors.

    From some of our readers:


    I thought your article was right on and timely (A Bad Day at Work, June, 2004, The Florida Community Association Journal).  I believe the biggest cause of burn out in this business is the stress under which managers put themselves trying to balance their job and personal lives.  Property Management is not a terribly rewarding profession, time is always of the essence and you never quite know what will happen next...much is out of one's hands and cannot be changed.  It would serve managers well, as well as be healthier both in mind and spirit, if we could adjust the habit of blaming one's self or taking the weight of the associations on our shoulders.  I say adjust the habit - as we get older, making a change becomes more difficult, we are more settled in our ways even though the need to change is obvious and beneficial.

    Bravo, great article (Collision Course, March 2005, The Florida Community Association Journal).  You hit the nail on the head. I am a victim of exactly what you described.   My contract was canceled rather underhanded by a group of new directors after managing an HOA in Miami for seven years.

    To complicate the situation I live and own two other town homes in the community. I became a property manager at the suggestion of the Board of the community at that time. The current management company is missing in action.

    Thanks again for your insight.

    Dear Ms. Barbieux,

    I would like to thank you and say that I look forward to utilizing some of your articles in my newspaper.  I mail my paper to new homeowners in Lake County, each month, right after they move in for up to one year thereafter.

    Because most of my readers are in transition from a recent move, they may also be dealing with other stressful life situations that created the need for their move.  A new job, newly married or newly divorced, new baby or retiring - just to name a few.

    I believe some of your articles will help "lift their moods" and reduce their stress. 

    I will be happy to list your name and contact information at the end of each article and will mail you a copy when your articles appear.

    Again, thank you for this opportunity and I hope that one day we could meet in person.

    Respectfully,Barbara Poplin,
    The Homesteader, Lake County Edition
