United Property Associates (UPA) was founded
in 1978 in response to the need for quality property management in
Hampton Roads for apartment communities, homeowner and condominium
associations, and single-family homes.
As UPA evolved and grew during the ensuing thirty years, staff members
focused on employing and training personnel dedicated to strong and
consistent property management, rather than real estate sales. The
company's goal is not only to maintain client properties with the
necessary expenditure of funds but, in time, improve them. UPA maintains
a high quality staff of property and site managers, well trained and
experienced in the complete operation of apartment communities, homeowner
and condominium associations, and single-family home rentals.
United Property Associates, as a company, a team, and as individuals
will continually strive to meet all responsibilities and beyond. UPA
is committed to:
1. Providing our clients with top-quality service.
2. Delivering these services efficiently.
3. Treating our clients as we expect to be treated - putting our clients
first everyday and meaning it.
4. Providing an inclusive work environment where every person is given
the support and opportunity to be successful.
5. Expecting and accepting from ourselves nothing short of the best.
United Property Associates
is the only association management company in Hampton Roads with a
class-A contractor and on-staff civil engineers. The knowledge of
these fields is frequently very important for new communities, high-rise
buildings, and older properties. These three types of properties frequently
experience new construction problems not yet resolved with the developer,
building system complexities, or major re-habilitation projects to
The current staffing of United Property Associates' Virginia Beach,
Suffolk, Newport News, Williamsburg, and Richmond operations consists
of a very highly regarded administration and accounting staff which
serve to assist and support the site personnel as well as UPA's clients.
Through UPA's association with contractors and suppliers, UPA has
been able to secure prices from vendors far below what most companies
can obtain. Thus, UPA is able to keep the operating expenses of associations
below the level at which they customarily have operated.
We maintain accounts with vendors for the services most frequently
needed, using two or more vendors for each service in order to maintain
competitive prices. UPA constantly strives to update its bidding process
and seeks new vendors who are able to maintain the level and quality
of service UPA demands.
United Property Associates can significantly improve the quality of
your property or association, and upon request will provide strong
references from other owners or Board members where UPA has made these
