Cardinal Forest – Our Client for 30 Years!

Cardinal ForestWe take a huge amount of pride in building long lasting partnerships with our clients. Here is what one of our oldest clients, recently celebrating their 30th anniversary has to say about us:

In 2019, the Cardinal Forest Condominium Unit Owner’s Association of Springfield, Virginia shall have retained the services of Cardinal Management for thirty years; and I wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on what I see as the fruits of this long partnership. One of the oldest and largest associations in Northern Virginia, Cardinal Forest borders Lake Accotink to the south and is a very complex property, with woodland, pasture, and watercourses between the units. We enthusiastically continue to rely on Cardinal Management, above all, because of their intimate knowledge of the property and tireless efforts to furnish detailed responses to complex questions. Cardinal Management is also highly responsive to resident needs, especially important in a largely commuter neighborhood. In short, I have personally appreciated all my interactions with Cardinal Management, and look forward to continuing a longstanding partnership.

CMG Customer Satisfaction

What our clients are saying about us…

 “If I had to choose three words that described Cardinal Management, I would pick “responsive, reliable and diligent.” Phone calls and emails are returned promptly, monthly management reports are professional and comprehensive, and dealings with residents are always respectful and thorough. Most Board members know how wearing the responsibilities of representing HOA members can be, but with a strong management company, the day-to-day taskings will be better organized and more efficient. I am absolutely sincere in conveying my utmost respect for the people of Cardinal Management from the top down. Everyone I dealt with over the years has been a true professional. I cannot recommend them more highly.”
