Who we are

Facilities Advisors International, LLC. was formed to provide for the complete facilities maintenance management needs of common interest realty associations and other organizations.  We have 30+ years experience with condominium associations and planned developments, and 20+ years experience with timeshare associations and country clubs.  Condo hotels, churches, schools, and governmental entities are relatively newer additions to the service group.  While most organizations are familiar with the traditional reserve study, only a few have moved to the next level of integrating the study into a complete facilities maintenance plan. 

Our philosophy is that the reserve study is but one phase of the facilities maintenance process - the starting point.  We have developed software that allows any organization that maintains complex facilities to better manage their facilities.  The result is a more knowledgeable management team, more efficient staff, and more cost savings for the association.  For those organizations that are not yet ready to commit to industry best practices, an integrated facilities management system, we will certainly perform the traditional stand-alone reserve study services.  This is the starting point for developing an integrated facilities management plan.

We have a more than 30 year commitment to the industry for reserve study services.  No service company can survive that long in this industry without having proved themselves time and time again.  Our Company has not only survived, but excelled during that time period, receiving such recognition that our president, Gary Porter, served as CAI's national president in 1998-99.  We have benefitted from the trust of the industy.  That trust was earned through our core values.

  • INTEGRITY: Maintaining a high level of integrity is the only choice our clients will accept from us, and our personal standards demand it.
  • TRUSTWORTHY/TEAM-ORIENTED: We know that mutual trust and teamwork creates a progressive working environment that attracts and retains the best and the brightest people.
