The importance of responsible community association financial management cannot be overstated. The majority of the Boards of Directors we serve are each responsible for millions of dollars worth of real estate assets and hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual operating funds. Even the most seemingly insignificant miscalculation or oversight can have a dramatic impact on home values and families within your community. At Trestle Management Group we pride ourselves on having the most talented and experienced Financial Services team in the market, including membership in the American Institution of Certified Public Accountants and the Arizona Society of Certified Public Accountants.
