Pat Crosscombe is the Founder & CEO of BoardSpace
Her vision and determination to improve condos and boards of directors led to the development of BoardSpace. Since starting to work on her passion, Pat knows that BoardSpace will bring value to Home Owner Associations (HOAs), Community Associations, Housing Cooperatives, and non-profits of many types.
Pat is currently President of her condominium board of directors and is responsible for governing an 87-unit townhouse condominium that had previously been a rental property. This condo has faced what seems like every possible challenge known to condominiums: lawsuits, mediation, title insurance subrogated claims, declarant misbehavior, owner challenges, dog issues, special assessments, new bylaws, special engineering studies, reserve fund studies, fire code violations requiring a court appearance, overseeing a tender for very large roofing projects, water and sewage infiltration in basements, and much more.
This extraordinary experience as a director required that Pat take every opportunity to learn more about condo management and governance in order to keep with the challenges. Pat is passionate about improving governance and sharing her experience with others. She believes that if owners and directors had better information and knowledge about condominiums and what it really means, many problems could have prevented and would result in owners achieving the worry-free lifestyle promised. If it takes getting up on a roof to learn more about flat-top roofing, Pat is game to find out.
