Community Management Professionals, LLC (CMP) was formed on January 1st, 2013 by the combination of staff from Community Management Solutions, Inc. (CMS) and West Point Community Management, Inc. (WPCM).
CMS was formed in 1995 by combining Golob Real Estate, Inc. and Kathleen Kato, CPA, two businesses specializing in community association management.
Edward R. Golob, Jr. CMCA®, PCAM®, founded Golob Real Estate in 1984 and has been involved with community association management since 1980. Ed is a licensed Real Estate Broker, was a member of the Community Associations Institutes national faculty from 1987 through 1997, and is a past president of the Community Associations Institutes local chapter. He is the managing member of CMP.
In 1971, Bob Bright joined a group to form West Point Realty, focusing on commercial management. In 1988, management of community associations was added. In 1997, Bob formed West Point Community Management to specialize solely in community management.
