Cardinal Gets New Nest After Three Decades
After decades of conducting business in Anaheim, Cardinal Property Management, Inc., is moving its headquarters to Santa Ana in late April. The common interest development firm, specializing in the management of homeowner associations, will be located at 825 North Park Center Drive in Santa Ana. “We have been fortunate to expand our client base and our team over the years and have outgrown our current office space. This central location will put us closer to more of our Association clients to make it easier for them to transact business with us,” said Cardinal President Farrah Esquer. Cardinal Founder and CEO Susan Naples said, “As the county seat, Santa Ana is a great city in which to conduct business, and we look forward to a long and happy future there.” Cardinal will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house following the move. More information will be available later in the year. Cardinal opened its doors in 1981 with just a few employees and one leader, Susan Naples. Today Cardinal has 32 employees, and in 2010 Naples promoted Farrah Esquer to president. Esquer has worked for Cardinal for 15 years, and is immediate past president of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) Orange County Chapter. The firm holds the Accredited Association Management Company designation from CAI. Naples founded Cardinal on three commitments: 1—to provide the highest quality of services to our clients, 2—to further the professionalism and integrity of the industry and, 3—to participate in education and legislative efforts. Every day for nearly 35 years, each of these three commitments have been met and exceeded. Cardinal funds industry-specific education for all account managers to ensure that they are the most educated management professionals in the field. All managers are members of the Community Associations Institute, and many are actively involved at the Committee and Board level. While the Cardinal team of experts strives to ensure that each client association is in compliance with state and national laws, Cardinal Property Management also develops plans tailored specifically to each association. Cardinal’s accredited managers bring to bear their experience and skills to provide unparalleled service.
