        Equus Management Group Reno Office

        Mission Statement:

        To provide quality, reliable and ethical community association management services to the homeowners’ associations of northern Nevada and to help improve the community association industry overall.  We are proud that our clients have chosen Equus Management Group and we pledge to provide the best possible management at the best possible price.


        The History of Equus Management Group begins with our President, Richard A. Gardner. Mr. Gardner founded the company in 1999 and has over 20 years of HOA management experience. Mr. Gardner founded his company on the guiding principles of honesty, integrity and professionalism, and we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service. When you call Equus Management Group, you will reach a live person, not an automated answering system, and our trained management team is local and easy to access. We have also implemented a state-of-the-art software upgrade that allows our owners and Boards of Directors to view their accounts, documents and other features, on a secure, user-friendly website portal.

        Mr. Gardner has earned the Certified Community Association Manager (CCAM) designation from the California Association of Community Managers and has qualified for the Association Management Specialist (AMS) designation from Community Associations Institute (CAI). He holds the Community Association Management Certificate from the State of Nevada’s Division of Real Estate, as well as the Certification for Pool and Spa Operator (CPO).

        Because Equus Management Group is locally owned, we have the ability to offer the most competitive rates in the industry. We don’t think you should have to pay the higher rates of a nationally owned company and we want the opportunity to prove how we can save your community dollars for more important community projects.
