About the Author
AS A COUPLE, highly qualified to write a key resource on Homeowners Associations (HOAs), Burt and Susan Sweetow are an amazing collective of wisdom, education, and expertise in myriad factors of homeownership. As a team, passionate about HOAs, they are unstoppable! They have worked with Homeowners Associations for decades—working with homeowners, associations, and property management companies—each experience adding another layer to their belief it is possible to maximize the benefit of HOAs to ensure peaceful and pleasant communities—if only people will use the knowledge available for them. HOAs are not simple, and most people are not aware of the various laws and rulings that regulate them and often don’t know where to look. The couple wants to raise awareness and provide a one-stop resource for HOA information and rulings that makes the process of gaining valuable information less difficult for every person who needs it. Their education and experience are lengthy and impressive: President/Owner/Instructor of the Southwestern School of Real Estate since 1989; Realtors, speakers, trainers and lecturers. Their accolades range from honorary collegiate awards to Realtor Emeritus—always being recognized as the “go-to” for latest trends and issues in the housing industry. Susan and Burt add an additional layer to homeowner association issues with their background and experience as approved mediators for Justice Court and Superior Court—well known for their experience in talking with people in stressful situations to reach positive conclusions. Burt adds to the couple’s mix high-level experience in property and business management for homeowners associations, with a broad skill-set on budgeting, financial planning, operations management, advertising and marketing programs, as well as consulting for apartment building—condominium conversions. The couple has graced Arizona with their professionalism since 1976, and continues as local residents to share their time and talent with its communities. Susan, a mixed media artist creates work of art that was shown in local galleries, and donated for silent auctions as part of the couple’s philanthropic spirit. Burt donated his time to updating Taliesin's archives to computer several years ago. He also computerized cancer records for Scottsdale Health Care as a volunteer. For eight years the couple delivered meals to homebound residents… brightening their day with a cold lunch and hot dinner.

The authors contributed an approximate thirty-six page thumbnail of information specific to the history of HOAs, HOA governing documents and the responsibilities of HOAs by both a board of directors and a contracted management company when hired. While this book could prove useful to new residents by providing a basic overview of Arizona HOAs, in my opinion, not enough detailed information is presented to brand the book as "The Ultimate Arizona Guide For Homeowners, Board Members, And Professionals Involved In HOA Management".
They sold us our home in an HOA in Scottsdale 17 years ago and they have been our go to resource for HOA questions and now we have their wonderful book to use as a necessary and convenient homeowners guide! So much easier to read than the huge notebook our HOA gave us.
Burt and Susan Sweeton used their 90 years of experience as Realtors and property owners (owning several condominiums and planned communities) to developed this wonderful book.
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer who wants to learn the basics about HOA (how it was formed, and why it’s important for some properties), or a property owner who wants to understand the ins and outs of HOA, this book is your guide.
Arizona HOA’s and all that Jazz is a must read! I would recommend it to all of my clients.
