To build enduring relationships with our customers and communities by providing exceptional and innovative customer service.
PPM is a locally-owned, family-operated company founded by Randall and Nancy Tidwell. Before starting their venture in 1985, Randall Tidwell was a member of his community’s Board of Directors and was unhappy with the service provided by the management company. At that time, professional management companies in the area were focused on leasing and apartment management. With a desire to meet the specific needs of homeowner associations, 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. Nancy met with a local software developer in 1989 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.
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.

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.
