For the seventh consecutive year, Becker has earned your vote as a Diamond Level Readers’ Choice Award winner. We are very grateful to the readers, clients, and industry friends who put their confidence in us to educate, protect, and advance the interests of shared ownership communities of all types, sizes, and locations throughout Florida. We are proud to have the largest number of Florida community association lawyers under one roof who are recognized for excellence in the community association industry by virtue of their membership in the prestigious College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL). Today, Becker has more Florida Bar Board Certified Attorneys in Condominium and Planned Development Law than any other firm in the state of Florida.
At Becker, one of our core values is innovation. MyCommunitySite.com, a website development service for community associations; BeckerBALLOT.com, a proprietary online voting platform; and AssociationAdjusting.com, the only public adjusting company that exclusively serves community associations throughout Florida, are the most recent examples of our commitment to bringing innovative products to market on behalf of our community association clients and friends.
As another service to the community and industry, Becker offers free educational webinars for board members and managers.

As founder and president of Converged Services, I am honored and humbled for us to receive the top award for Technology and Communications. I would like to thank FLCAJ, its readers, and all those who voted for us as well as congratulate all winners and nominees. I would be amiss to not recognize my entire team at Converged Services as we cannot conduct our business successfully without their skills, synergy, and strength.
When Converged Services was founded, I promised to provide an exemplary level of proficiency, reliability, fairness, and integrity to the community associations we serve. I stand by this principle nearly 25 years later. As technology advisors, we are unlike any other firm in the industry. We think long-term and provide non-bias representation to ensure revenue gains and cost-savings to community associations. The technology industry is ever-changing, and we are unique in combining both industry and intellectual knowledge to shepherd client success, earning us respect from vendors and providers in the industry. At the end of the day, our priority is commitment to our clients.
The reason so many associations choose to collaborate with us on technology projects is because they understand that our strategic and systematic approach generates a very competitive environment. We negotiate on your behalf so that your property manager and staff can focus on the daily operations of your community.
Our due diligence and industry expertise statistically bring 50 percent higher incentive fees, greater home values, increased complimentary services to common areas, and the special provisions to provide a future-ready peace of mind, making you the champion for your community. And that is just the beginning—once you have the network, you have endless possibilities.

QXC brings fiber-optic speed to condominium communities. At QXC, providing Florida communities with reliable fiber-optic networking is what we’re passionate about, so we’re thrilled to be honored by our customers as a Readers’ Choice Award recipient.
QXC engineers the custom fiber-optic and fixed-point wireless networks that make life more enjoyable for residents and easier for property managers—and we do it better than anyone else in the industry. QXC’s active optical network (AON) dedicated fiber-to-the-home is superior by design, delivering dramatically faster speeds with no privacy or security risks.
QXC also offers exclusive network backup using fixed-wireless connectivity. If our fiber is accidentally cut by a contractor, the QXC system seamlessly switches to our wireless tower backup, so service is never down (available in most areas).
