While Columbia, IL, is part of the St. Louis Metropolitan area, it has its own history and unique culture. Columbia is located in Monroe and St Clair Counties. It was founded by the French in the 1600s. The British then controlled the territory until the American Revolution. In the 19th century, German immigrants made up the majority of Columbia. These varied influences can still be felt in the city today.

Community Property Management?


With access to paid invoices, bank balances, status of maintenance & compliance issues, and the ability to run reports in real time the Board is never “in the dark” about what is happening in the Association.


Our Customer Service Team is ready to assist you with Community needs or escalate your call/email to the appropriate party that can address your need.  When you leave a  voice mail you can expect a return call the same day or the following morning.


The average tenure of CPM staff is 7-plus years.  When your Board asks for a recommendation, they can know that they are getting an experts opinion for that task/issue or that the answer is available through the 75-plus combined years of experience of upper management.

How CPM took the Small management company mentality and became a Missouri and Illinois Management Leader...


The culture of CPM is centered on exceeding the expectations of owners and board members through its staff and the use of current technology. While we’re innovative in our approach to management, we haven’t lost sight of those who have not yet transitioned. We’ll meet you wherever you are.

CPM was started in 1985 with the idea that community management should be accessible, transparent, ethical, and proactive. With this simple business plan in place CPM has expanded to serve a variety of communities (to include, Condominium, Villa, Single-Family Homes (HOA), Town-home, Mid-Rise, and other styles of Multi-Family communities) and extended our service area to the entire Greater St. Louis Missouri and Illinois Metropolitan area including Missouri’s St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Franklin Counties; the Columbia Missouri area, and the Illinois counties of Madison, Monroe, St. Clair and Jersey. We are dedicated to managing community associations. 


We work with a set of best practices that align with the code of ethics that earned us Community Associations Institute’s Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC) designation – a designation that denotes the exemplary capabilities and standards of CPM.
