janAll alone except for one client, Jan Lhotka started Action Property Management in 1984.  She seized an opportunity that came her way and identified an unmet need in the industry.  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 200 communities under management and more than 650 employees.

Jan’s leadership in the company led to success that re-defined the industry.  Setting a new basis for transparent and flexible operations that are grounded in integrity and respect, Action quickly garnered a reputation as the standard bearer in the industry for genuine, quality service.


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.
