I have been active in my gated community for the past 6 years. | have participated as a homeowner and as a Board Member. During this time our community has had 5 different Management Companies. Most of these companies have been mediocre in their performance, at best.
The primary asset that Desert Living has to offer is their ability to communicate. They respond quickly with homeowners and the Board of Directors. Their office is always professional and they assist the Board with annual calendars, financials, board meetings & agendas and many other legal questions to ensure that we are in compliance with all CC& Rs, rules and regulations at all times. Their efficiency allows a Board to operate with confidence and strength and allows them to spend fewer volunteer hours performing their duties. | would highly recommend Desert Living to any community that wants a premium Management Company.read more
I highly recommend Desert Living Inc. Our community hired them in 2013, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our decision. Every aspect of their service is far superior to that of previous management companies. Their staff is efficient, very pleasant to work with, and they are extremely knowledgeable of current laws governing HOAs.read more
Desert Living has served our community for the past 10 years and have been nothing but professional and relational, not only with the board but with our particular community. — We’ve had several improvement projects within our community and Desert Living has been there every step of the way making sure everything is timely and up to standards.
I have recommended Desert Living Management to several people, that they can’t go wrong with bringing them in to manage their community.read more
| have been a property owner in Palm Valley Estates for the past 24 years and a Board member for the past 10+ years. Approximately 3 years ago, the board made the decision to end a long-term relationship with our Management Company.
| personally took on the role of looking for a new company to fulfill all our operational and accounting needs. After reviewing numerous incredible non-consistent proposals, there was no answer to finding an apples to apples proposal. Desert Living was the only company willing to put their efforts and talents against any other bidder with our budget in mind.
We have been able to accomplish several long-term goals, including an extensive, community-wide gas lamp conversion. From the owner Lisa, to William our manager and his assistant Korri, we have been very happy with their service and attention to details.
As the Treasurer of Palm Valley for over a decade, | must stand and applaud the service we have gotten from Desert Living’s Accounting Manager, Barbara. She Is really solid!
| absolutely recommend Desert Living to any community looking for a management company – they will exceed your expectations!read more
| am president of the Stonegate Encore North HOA, a gated community of approximately 50 large single-family homes in the Silverado Ranch area. | rent out my former home there. Desert Living have been our management company since early 2017. We selected them after dissatisfaction with our prior management company. | am so glad we made the change.
Desert Living have done truly excellent work for us. They smoothly handled a transition from the prior management company (who offered negligible help in the process). They invested time to get up to speed quickly on the issues facing the community. They helped us review and replace key vendors such as landscapers with far better providers at considerably lower rates (we now save more than 40% on landscaping). They assisted with the biggest program of repairs and upgrades to the common areas that our community has ever seen, to the point where it has never looked better. They coordinated a comprehensive legal review of our rules, noticing that several were outdated or unclear. They even patiently and professionally handled the misconduct of one mischievous homeowner who had issues with the directors when we tried to enforce the rules against him. Our accounts have never looked better or been more clearly presented, and our collections policy is consistently enforced with past due balances far lower than they have been in recent years. Their rates are reasonable and we have never felt they are nickel and diming us or submitting questionable invoices. And at all times their staff have been incredibly responsive, helpful, positive and frankly a pleasure to work with.
As a 28-year attorney with experience of multiple local HOAs, | am often frustrated with the generally poor quality of management companies, especially those that forget that they work for the board and instead try to take control. Desert Living however are the exception and 1 would recommend them without hesitation as by far the most exceptional management company | have encountered.read more

As someone who has dealt professionally for over 10 years with Desert Living Management, and someone who has dealt professionally with countless property management companies over the course of my 30 years in the landscape industry in Las Vegas, | can honestly say that they are easily one of, if not the, best company I’ve had the good fortune of dealing with.
The nature of ownerships involvement in the day to day operations means you always get to where “the buck stops”. They are professional, yet personal and caring. They are patient and yet persistent. Their record of follow up and follow through is spotless.
So those are the tangible “professional” qualities that | think are important… but if you want to know what kind of company they are you always look at the leaders. Lisa and William have integrity and honesty in spades, and their work ethic and customer service principles are outstanding. It’s those qualities that inform all they do and you see it in their employees. | can’t recommend them enough.read more
