Jan Lhotka Action Property Management

Jan Lhotka

History of Action
Our History

Jan Lhotka started Action Property Management in 1984 with just one client. She identified an unmet need in the industry and seized an opportunity that came her way.

At the time, HOA management was characterized by unethical and unprofessional services. So, starting with the first client, Jan established a foundation of ethics and professionalism. Those hallmarks continue to echo throughout the company today and Action has grown to well over 300 communities under management and more than 850 employees.

In 2014, long time Action executives, Matthew Holbrook and Marianne Simek, purchased the company and became the new owners of Action Property Management. Having led the strategic and operational functions of the company since 2000, Matthew and Marianne treasure the legacy built by Jan. Rooted in deep ethical convictions and a commitment to professional service, the company continues its trajectory of shaping the industry through always improving service.

Working with Action has enabled us to quickly reflect return on investment with our homeowners because their team made swift work on showcasing visual improvements across the property and ensuring increased engagement with our community. They have brought much needed organization and brevity to our policies and procedures and have helped make us a more productive HOA board as well.

Kerrie Sparks, Twenty One Turtle Creek HOA Board Secretary

You have pre-organized processes in place to manage the work flow with such professionalism which has helped to unburden the board’s workload, decrease our stress, and assure us with appropriate guidance.
