With teams dedicated to innovation, Envera’s vision is to continuously support associations and improve amenity and asset protection with solutions that strengthen community value.

For 25 years, Forge Engineering has literally built the foundation of South Florida. A multi-disciplined engineering firm whose expertise has touched many of the major construction projects in the area, Forge Engineering itself is constructed upon rock-solid principles of ensuring clients’ requirements are resolved efficiently by assessing needs and providing meaningful answers.
“We don’t turn anyone away. Our company culture is to offer solid advice and help clients take care of their assets, spend their dollars wisely, and minimize wasteful expenditures due to a lack of maintenance,” says Matt H. Nolton, CEO and senior principal engineer.
Forge Engineering offers expertise in many forensic-related categories associations would call upon regularly, such as roof consultation, reserve or turnover studies, waterproofing consultation, concrete restoration, water intrusion investigations, painting and sealant projects, window and door replacement, and building envelope evaluation. Our forensics team is often called upon as expert witnesses in court cases dealing with construction defects or insurance claims. Where other companies might assess an issue and offer “their” way of resolving it, Forge consultants consider all parameters relevant to the client.
Yet, as instrumental as Forge Engineering has been in the construction, development, and maintenance of South Florida’s buildings, they’ve also been community builders. Every employee is in some way involved with charity or civic groups, such as Rotary and Habitat for Humanity. “We contribute, get involved, and make our community a better place for everyone,” says Mr. Nolton, who adds that work-life balance for all employees is key. “We take care of our customers, but we have a big emphasis on family. Everyone knows everyone and cares. It’s truly a team, and we take that responsibility seriously.”

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 servicing premier communities in the area.
It was Annie Marks, the sole owner 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 2015, Catie Marks entered the fold and joined MAY’s executive team. As Annie’s daughter, a lifetime of preparation suited her well as Catie hit the ground running. The mother-daughter 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 celebrated its 32nd year in 2020 and continues to expand. By regularly investing in its personnel and technology as well as expanding portfolio of services, they are able to take on new clients without sacrificing any commitment to their current clients.

Once again, we are humbled and truly blessed to be selected as a Readers’ Choice Award winner company at the Diamond Level by our loyal customers. The year 2020 was unprecedented. Our goals were to keep our incredible team employed and to continue to operate as ethically and as effectively as possible. I believe we succeeded on both counts.
We did not jump on the bandwagon of air purifying or other unproven technologies/gimmicks. We went back to basics and said, “Let us come and clean and sanitize your trash chute doors.” They are touched by so many people each day—and who washes their hands before they take out the garbage? We priced the service affordably, and many properties signed up. Even at the height of the lockdown, there were still fire safety inspections and violations and smelly trash chutes. With some luck and careful planning, we not only kept everyone employed, but we also added some new team members to our family!
All of us had different challenges and different fears, but we were united in that the residents of the buildings that you manage and we service still deserved the best quality of work from the most qualified and licensed vendors. With every safety protocol in place, we continued to do our job. “Thank You” is all we can say—for being loyal; for voting for us again; for surviving 2020!

We all at Mena Law Firm (MLF) are honored and proud to be recognized as a Readers’ Choice Award winner. Thank you to everyone who helped make this important recognition possible.
MLF has been helping policyholders resolve their claims for more than 20 years. We have helped countless associations, businesses, and individuals throughout Florida navigate the sometimes-turbulent waters that are insurance claims. MLF knows firsthand how frustrating insurance companies can be. Millions of Floridians make their insurance payments responsibly every single month, understanding that if disaster befalls them that their insurance company will step up. More often than not, however, this doesn’t happen. You pay your premiums every month, but insurance companies make it nearly impossible for you to access your benefits when you need them.
That’s where we step in and fight for you. We will work with you to understand your rights as well as your options. We will take all steps necessary to maximize any potential recovery. Most importantly, we will fight for you, from beginning to end, to help you get what you are rightfully entitled to; and we will do so as aggressively as possible so that you can get what you are entitled to as soon as possible. With our experienced team on your side, we can help make this rather daunting process easier and less stressful.
