Association Consulting Services

Roost DC is an employee owned building management company working exclusively in Washington, DC. We tend to communities as varied as converted historic Capitol Hill mansions, to buildings purchased through tenant advocacy programs, to newly constructed eight-story Logan Circle developments. As our core service, we offer comprehensive management services including governance, accounting and finance, administration, and a maintenance and preservation program.

While management services are an essential part of an association or cooperative’s mechanical and financial wellness, professional management isn’t necessarily a value added proposition for small associations over time. The District real estate landscape is becoming increasingly populated with small scale condominium projects with a handful of units. More and more, we hear from small buildings in need of services, but without resources to engage an effective management company. We have an elegant solution to this common problem.

We decided to build our Roost because we recognized something was missing in the property management field - a sense of community, a sense of pride, and an interest in maintaining and sustaining beautiful buildings and homes.
We do understand not every association will need ongoing management and believe establishing the strongest possible foundation for building operations will ensure long term success for the building and the community. It will also conserve association resources and position the building for long-term financial stability. We would be delighted to function as a strong resource.
We offer these consulting services at the rate of $150 per hour with a six-hour minimum for engagement. Please reach out to Lisa Wise at [email protected] or Chelsey Kelly at [email protected] if you would like to work with us!
