Over 30 Years of Experience & Locally Owned
Vantage Community Management is the brainchild of owner Deborah Haskett, who conceived the idea of a professional company providing association management services in Thurston County in 2003. While other companies at the time provided services to associations, none were doing it as a single line of business. Research brought her into partnership with Andrew Barkis of Hometown Property Management and they began the company in 2004, incorporating in 2007 as Hometown Association Management.
ln 2011, the company purchased Andrew's stock and Deborah became the sole-owner of the corporation. Andrew retained the Hometown name and the company known formerly as Hometown Association Management changed its name to Vantage Community Management. Over the next 12 months, the company began the process of branding under its new identity and expanding its marketing efforts to the Greater South Puget Sound area. The company also moved to a new location in April, making 2011 a busy year!
