Our first ever Baker Ranch 5K was incredible! On September 15, runners of all levels ran through four parks: Vista Swim Club, Borrego Trail, Oaks Tennis Park, and Promenade Park. We had over 100 participants who, along with our sponsors, helped us bring awareness to Higher Ground Youth & Family Services, a not-for-profit charitable organization based out of Yorba Linda.
Technically, you’re already involved. When you purchased your home within a planned community, you are a member of that community. You have the ability to vote on new rules, regulations, etc. Your community may assign a property management company, but the HOA board always controls the rules in your community. If you want to get more involved, joining the HOA Board may be the natural place for you.
This month we’re focusing on all things related to becoming or being an HOA Board member. We always encourage homeowners to get involved in their community, whether it’s through social events or lending a hand. For those who want to make a yearly commitment by joining their HOA Board, don’t be afraid to jump in, it can be a fun and educational experience.
Every year, no matter which SoCal city you live in, you’ve watched the news about your city or surrounding city being on high alert during fire season. That’s the bad side of living with 284 sunny days a year. But did you know how most fires are caused in Orange County?
Enjoy a meandering tour through the community parks, neighborhoods and walking trails! Cross over the Alton pedestrian bridge as you make your way to the finish line at Promenade Park, where you'll be greeted by the Fitness Expo, recover stations, DJ music and a Kids Fun Run!
When researching a property management company, the technology they use is important to help increase ease of awareness and communication for homeowners and HOA Board Members. Your chosen property management company should have software to make a homeowner’s life easier. Emails are still a great way to send off a quick question, and we still get calls, but our busy lives are a little less busier with smart technology. Before you sign with a property management company, have them walk you through their technology.
Now that you’ve created your timeline and its tasks, Crummack Huseby’s financial experts want to share insights on creating and implementing the smartest budgets for your community. It’s important to consider expense questions your Board should ask, what your management company’s accountant should know, and thoughts on the timing of assessment increases.
The rising senior population is called a “silver tsunami” as the population growth of seniors is on the rise. This demographic is more active than ever and communities are not only adding amenities to lure them in, but also creating stand alone neighborhoods for the 55+ active senior who desires a more posh lifestyle in their golden years. Take a look at what this growing demographic is looking for in their new home.

You helped us get to our goal of $3,000! Crummack Huseby is so grateful for your participation in helping Together We Rise, a non-profit organization that supports kids in foster care. On Friday, June 27th, our supporters arrived at Crummack Huseby headquarters to decorate the Sweet Cases. With your donations, our team of supporters decorated and stuffed 95+ Sweet Cases that will be given to foster kids who don’t have their own suitcase to carry their belongings. We hand-decorated duffel bags and filled them with a blanket, a toothbrush, crayons and a coloring book and the softest and sweetest teddy bear for them to snuggle. So much love and care went into every Sweet Case!
