Gina Holbrook's vision has set the bar for the community management industry

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 100-year old home Premier continued to grow and in 2008 the company relocated their office to Lake Mary.   Gina also coerced Larry, in between his military deployments, to join the company and launch the company’s maintenance division, providing 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 mid-town Lake Mary. Then, in June 2015, as if Gina and her staff weren't already busy enough, they opened a satellite office in Clermont.   

In March 2016 Premier was honored to be named the 3rd Place winner in the Bright House Regional Business Awards.  The award highlighted Premier’s outstanding work ethic, transparent approach to community management and their fanatical commitment to customer service.  

Then, in August 2016, Premier was recognized by the Orlando Sentinel as one of Orlando’s Top 100 Companies, earning 12th place in the Small Business category. Further, the Orlando Sentinel honored Premier with the Community Service Champion Award, citing Premier’s outstanding community service for residents in need in the communities they manage and as well as their support of countless charitable organizations in the Central Florida area.

In August 2017 Premier was again recognized by the Orlando Sentinel as one of Orlando's Top 100 Companies, earning 9th place in the Small Business category.  Then, in October 2017, the Orlando Business journal named Premier an Honoree for the 2017 Corporate Philanthropy Award.

One visit to Premier's office and you'll see the staff is filled with pride for their company.  Their ability to provide elite management services, superior customer service and extraordinary community service has enabled Premier to become the leader in the community management industry.

 

Give Premier a call and see how Premier can help your community realize a new level of Performance, Innovation and Excellence.  The more you learn about Premier the more you'll agree that Premier is the only choice for your association.
