My wife and I bought our condominium in SW Denver in April 2011 and moved in Nov. 2011. It’s our first condo experience but not our first experience with an HOA. Quite a few years ago I served as president of an HOA in a community of several hundred homes. I got on the board because there was tremendous dissension throughout the community between residents and the board, and I was determined to see that changed. I was successful, and most of the board members moved on to other pursuits. Twenty years later I find myself in a community with a fair amount of board/member resentment and mistrust, and few members who are willing to get involved and make a difference.
