I remember one case in particular where the board asked us to write a letter to this homeowner because they weren’t following the rules. And so I sat down and looked at the information, distilled it down, and wrote a letter to the homeowner explaining to them what was happening and why and why it made sense. And after sending the letter and then talking to the homeowner for a little bit the homeowner actually came around and realized why we were doing what we were doing. And realized what we were doing and came around and actually thanked us and agreed with the board because previous to our involvement, tempers were a little high and they were talking past each other. And sitting down and just calmly explaining everything to both sides resolved the conflict and everybody was able to move on.
