Company history

Professional Properties Management of Raleigh, Inc. (PPM) is a locally owned, family operated company founded by Randall and Nancy Tidwell in 1985. At the time, Randall was serving as a member of his community’s Board of Directors, who were unhappy with the service provided by their current management company.  In the mid-80s, professional management companies in the area were focused on leasing and apartment management, rather than meeting the specific needs of homeowner associations. At that point, Randall and Nancy took the initiative to offer their services as professional property managers in an effort to improve the quality of community management available to associations in the area.

In 1987, PPM was presented with the opportunity to manage Shepherd’s Vineyard, a new development in Apex, and one that they are proud to continue to manage today.

As 1989 unfolded, Nancy met with a local software developer and created an HOA-specific software program in an effort to better serve their growing list of clients.  It wasn’t until 2002 that other local competitors began to purchase the HOA management software program designed by PPM.

Cathy Lemly, a senior manager, was awarded the statewide honor of  Portfolio Manager of the Year in 2008 by the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Associations Institute. Cathy has been with PPM since 1995.

The following year, Lynn Peed was awarded the same honor of Portfolio Manager of the Year. Lynn has been with PPM since 1998. In addition, Brooke Tidwell was awarded the honor of Rookie Manager of the Year.

Most recently, Tammy Sanderford was awarded the honor of 2015 Portfolio Manager of the Year by the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Associations Institute.  Tammy is a senior manager and has been with PPM since 1994.

Throughout the 30+ years as Raleigh’s trusted community management company, PPM has managed nine communities named Community of the Year as well as worked with two developers named Developer of the Year by the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Associations Institute.

PPM now serves more than 200 communities and represents over 30,000 homeowners throughout central North Carolina. With an experienced staff of over 30 employees, we are committed to strengthening our relationship with our clients by managing our growth, focusing on continued education, and using the latest industry-specific technologies.

We proudly offer HOA and office condominium management services to communities in Wake and Durham County, and surrounding NC areas. Please contact us today for more information on our property management and community development services.
