If Gina Holbrook had planned to start Premier Association Management of Central Florida in June 2004 she sure went about it differently than most would have.
After more than 20 years in the association management field, Gina figured it was time to stay home and be a full-time military wife to her husband Larry and Mom to her then 8-year old son, David. Playing soccer Mom and volunteering at the local school had become her new calling.
However, as soon as she “retired” her phone started to ring. Within weeks, several communities came calling for the manager they had grown to love for years of loyal service, immense HOA knowledge and personal charm. Soon, and with only two pieces of advice from her husband Larry—"always do things the right way and treat your staff like gold"— she found a small office building in the downtown Sanford area and Premier was born. With new-found energy, Gina and Premier quickly outgrew the downtown office and relocated to a historic home on Elm Avenue in Sanford. Despite the unexplained creeks and rattles of a historic home Premier continued to grow and in 2008 relocated their office to Lake Mary. Gina also coerced Larry, in between his military deployments, to launch the company’s maintenance division and provide Premier's communities with affordable and dependable maintenance services.
In the autumn of 2010 Premier Living Magazine was added to the Premier portfolio. Mailed free of charge, Premier Living is designed to educate the home or condominium owner on association news, board procedures and legal processes, as well as providing a myriad of uplifting stories highlighting the many remarkable residents living within the communities Premier manages.
Gina and the Premier family didn’t stop there. In late 2010, to support families that need a little extra assistance due to an illness or job loss, the Premier Gives Back Foundation was formed. The Foundation, made up of volunteer staff members from Premier, hosts several events each year to raise funds designed to assist families in the communities Premier manages. Providing meals and gifts for families in need during the holidays; landscaping or mowing the lawn of an elderly or sick home owner; or by assisting with utility bills for those in danger of losing service are just a few ways to show that Premier really does want to be a part of your community.
In April 2015, Premier opened their new home office in downtown Lake Mary. Then, in June 2015, as if Gina and her staff weren't already busy enough, they opened their new satellite office in Clermont.
In 2011, 2012, 2013 and again in 2014, Premier was honored as the “Best of Lake Mary” for Association Management. In March 2016 was honored to be named the 3rd Place winner in the Bright House Regional Business Awards for small businesses. These awards highlight the Premier team's ability to create a custom solution to meet each community's individual needs and showcases their fanatical commitment to customer service.
