MAY Management Services

Diamond Level Winner—Management
(Winner 2022 and four previous RCA wins)

     MAY Management Services Inc., founded in 1988, is renowned for providing first-rate association management services throughout Northeast Florida. Initially centered in Ponte Vedra Beach, MAY has expanded rapidly with bases of operation in St. Johns and the five surrounding counties to meet the demands of serving premier communities in the area. 

      It was Annie Marks, founder of MAY, who recognized early in the company’s expansion campaign that a strong focus on accounting and financials would pilot MAY to the top. As such, MAY’s expertise with respect to association financials (e.g., budgeting, billing, expense control, and collections) and continued investments into internal accounting systems have allowed the company to rapidly expand without sacrificing client support, helping MAY become the leading management firm in the area.

     In addition to its commitment to financial support, under Marks’ leadership, MAY has expanded its service offerings to clients including, but not limited to, developing continuing education courses for association board and committee members and establishing some of the first association architectural control programs in the market. Through the years, MAY has been able to establish significant relationships with national development firms and developers looking to strike ground in the market. Developers now regularly rely on MAY’s consulting services at all stages of community development.

      In 2021, Catie Marks entered the fold and joined MAY’s executive team as president. A lifetime of preparation suited her well, and she hit the ground running. The women-led team is not only passionate about the services they provide but understands the responsibilities and level of trust their clients bestow upon MAY. The entire MAY team feeds off of this and is committed to remaining one of the top firms in the business.

     MAY celebrates its 34th year in 2022 and continues to expand. The firm remains steadfast in its commitment to providing premier association management services and unparalleled experiences for both board members and residents alike. The year 2022 will be no exception to the decades-long successes of MAY.

Southern Chute

Diamond Level Winner—Services and Repairs
(Winner 2022 and six previous RCA wins)

     It seems the only constants in the last two years have been change, pivoting, and our wonderful, loyal customers who have honored us once again as an RCA Diamond level winner! We are so grateful for your continued business.

     Southern Chute was born in 2001 as the creation of my husband, Chet; his brother, Sandy; and myself, Joanna. We wanted to build a company where we gave excellent service, and we gave our employees a balance of work/family (and a place we could take our dogs to work—my request). Even though we lost Chet six years ago, Sandy and I, along with our management team, continue to retain some of the best technicians. 

     We celebrated our 20th anniversary in October 2021 with a party and a roll call of employees. Will Winkler has been with us 17 years; Barry Johnson, 16 years; PJ Alonso, 16 years; and Phil Reid, 9 years—I think it is fair to say that our respect for our team translates into loyalty. Loyalty from our team translates into pride in their work and pride in the company they represent. The beneficiary is you, our customer. We know you like to see the same faces year after year, and it is MY mission to keep our family at your service, whatever COVID throws at us! Be well, be safe, and keep voting for Southern Chute!

Stone Claims Group

Diamond Level Winner—Public Adjuster
(Winner 2022 and one previous RCA win)

Fighting For Fairness®

     Damage happens, which is why you buy insurance. When your properties get damaged, you expect a fair claim settlement. Reality says you won’t get enough for repairs since insurance adjusters work for insurance companies, not for you. It wasn’t always like that, which is why most of us at Stone Claims worked for insurance companies. Today we work for you as public adjusters fighting for fairness.

     The law entitles you to representation, and just like you should hire an attorney for any court battle, you should hire a public adjuster for your claim. At Stone Claims, we work for free until we maximize your claim’s fair value and get you every dollar under policy. Our recovery amount, drastically higher than insurers would’ve ever paid you, makes teaming with us a smart investment. If you could have winning representation and it is risk-free, would you choose it or fight alone?

     Why us, then? First, for a free inspection to gauge if your claim is worth filing. If so, we find, document, and package all damages—in the insurer’s language—to raise their “benchmark.” Next, we expedite resolution by hiring top experts and fronting costs to prove all damages. With a team of our experienced adjusters rather than one person, you get to learn how we negotiate diplomatically to get you repairs sooner.

     Since 1993, our adjusting, appraisals, and pre-loss documentation of complex insurance claims have recovered over $1 billion for associations across 18 states.

Mallard Systems

Platinum Level Winner—Roof Cleaning
(Winner 2022 and one previous RCA win)

      For more than 30 years, Mallard Systems has enjoyed developing partnerships with community managers and board members throughout Florida. We appreciate the opportunities we have had to get to know many of you and are honored to be recognized as a Readers’ Choice Award Platinum Winner. Thank you!

     The cleanliness of a community, both common areas and individual homes, is also a community-defining feature. Many communities understand this and have annual, semiannual, and quarterly cleaning projects included in their budgets. Other communities may delay cleaning until areas become an eyesore and require cleaning treatments that are more aggressive and more expensive.

     Mallard Systems specializes in safe, but effective, low-pressure chemical roof cleaning, exterior power washing, and sidewalk cleaning. We clean, restore, and protect these areas of your community without damaging your buildings, paint, or plants. We provide detailed project plans to minimize disruption to residents, and our crews are uniformed professionals.

     We appreciate you continuing to choose Mallard Systems for your community cleaning needs and look forward to speaking with you about your next project.
