Envera’s mission is to partner with communities and provide security through industry-leading technology and superior customer service. With teams dedicated to continuous innovation, Envera’s vision is to become the leader in community security by establishing technology-driven security solutions that strengthen community value.

     Envera focuses on making sure that community entrances, clubhouses, pools, and other assets are protected in a way that is not obtrusive to the quality of life. Our state-of-the-art central monitoring operations center oversees it all, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with licensed Virtual Guards.

     With the revolutionary Virtual Gate Guard, Envera uses strategically placed cameras and two-way audio to allow remotely located guards to verify visitors at gated communities. Auto-verification enhancements allow the Virtual Gate Guard to immediately verify repeat and permanent visitors with driver’s license, license plate, and QR technology. Envera also secures resident lanes with access control solutions that prevent sharing credentials, can be easily deactivated, and can be managed by Envera’s security guards.

     While the Virtual Gate Guard greets and screens visitors at a community entrance, Envera’s Active Video Surveillance keeps pools, parks, clubhouses, and other amenities clear of trespassers and vandals. When the area closes at night, artificial intelligence assists in monitoring and alerting Envera’s guards when anyone enters. A Virtual Guard voices down to the trespassers to tell them the area is closed. If trespassers refuse to leave, Envera can contact the local authorities.

     In addition, Envera offers accompanying solutions to secure all areas of a community when needed. Envera provides all services from implementation to installation, servicing of equipment, and monitoring. It’s the Envera difference.

We always negotiate the best prices for each community we manage, and the savings come back in the form of lower operating costs to residents. Integrity and transparency are part of our DNA. Planning and coordination of association meetings, site visits, enforcement of deed restrictions, contract supervision, and aggressive collection of assessments are all regular services, along with detailed financial and manager’s reports. Sentry invests heavily in technology and tools to help communities prosper.

     CommunityPro® is Sentry’s exclusive management and communications software. It makes the community manager more productive and board members better informed.

Southern Chute
Diamond Level Winner—Maintenance
(Winner 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 & 2016)

     Southern Chute was born in 2001 from an idea Chet Ribner had when he was selling commercial maintenance supplies to condominiums. He was always being asked for something to clean the trash chute with or a product to counteract the odors. A little research and a lot of prayers later, we opened our doors on October 1.

     We founded Southern Chute on two principles: that happy employees are invested in their comp-any, and that we will not take a customer’s money unless we can make a difference at their property. Eighteen years later, we have two offices and 20 employees, and we have you—our satisfied and loyal customers! We value the relationships and friendships that we have developed with you over the years.

     Most of our employees have been with us 10 to 15-plus years. Many of you comment on how nice it is to see the same faces every year. The pride that they felt last year in winning this award is doubled to win again in 2020! We cannot thank you enough for this honor.

     Although Chet left us too early and is not physically here to celebrate with us, he left us his work ethic and his honesty as his legacy. We appreciate your continued support!

     We are honored to be recognized as a Diamond-Level Readers’ Choice Award winner.  It really is a testament to the dedication and hard work contributed by each member of the Sovereign & Jacobs team.   

     An association’s core purpose is not about buildings, rules, or money.  It’s a corporation that helps people.  Putting people first—building a community for them to prosper in—is the essence of our association management philosophy.  We focus on the human needs within a community, and we are known for our responsiveness and communication with homeowners and board members.  We have the resources to address all of your community’s needs, such as budgeting, accounting, collections, maintenance and repairs, vendor oversight, and covenant enforcement.  We understand that board members fill an often-thankless volunteer position in addition to their already busy lives. This is where we shine as a property management company.  S & J does all the heavy lifting to ensure our board members are the decision makers of the association and not the laborers.

     Are you considering a change?  Let our transition team walk you through the process.

United Claims Specialists is a licensed public adjusting firm that has represented thousands of community association and HOA property damage claims. While headquartered in Miami, UCS provides coverage across the entire state of Florida, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Texas, Colorado, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. We provide a committed team of experts to each case: licensed public adjusters, building engineers, construction and contents specialists, lawyers, and others if necessary. We pride ourselves on our proactive approach to each client’s claim, crafting a customized solution to maximize each settlement and taking swift action on behalf of our clients. We then show the insurance company what they owe you and make sure you get the largest possible settlement. We exclusively serve our clients and not the insurance companies. We want to make sure that you get the settlement you deserve. Due to the fast approaching deadline of September 2020, we are urging everyone who had Irma damages to schedule free inspections. We are currently reopening prior claims for supplemental payments and still filing Irma claims on properties with recently discovered damages. After the deadline, all Irma claims will be denied by insurance carriers.

Insurance companies hire experts and so should you!

Absolute Patio Furniture Restoration
Gold Level Winner—Pools, Lakes & Parks
(Winner 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 & 2015)

     As many South Florida community associations and property managers can attest, their patio is very important to their communities. The problem with South Florida is that the weather is particularly hard on the furniture. The combination of the sun, humidity, and, in some cases, sand and salt for beachfront properties can wear out the furniture and wreak havoc. It is for this reason that patio furniture restoration becomes an essential part of property management. Restoring outdoor furniture is a green process, which saves money and also helps save the environment. Not only is this process green, but it’s also very cost effective and allows a unique opportunity to customize a community’s restoration and handpick from a large selection of metal finishes, fabrics, and color schemes. This selection includes hundreds of colors, patterns, and fabrics for slings, straps, and cushions, which allows a community association or property manager to select something they feel will fit with their already established décor, effectively creating an overall coordinated and polished look. The flexibility of powder coating makes it a great choice for any metal restoration project.

Is Your Property a Candidate for Restoration?

     Condominiums, country clubs, and HOAs with old and worn patio furniture should consider a powder coating restoration process instead of taking on the greater expense of furniture replacement. If the finish on the frames is still in great condition, then simply re-strapping or re-slinging is also an option. If your furniture is in good structural condition and only requires some minor welding repairs, then your furniture is a great candidate for restoration. You can completely update the look of your furniture and save your property a lot of money at the same time!
