With the Triangle area continuing to top the lists for the Best Places to Live, it’s no wonder our company has grown over the last few years. To make room for new faces, and to continue offering the best possible service for all of our communities, we’ve made the exciting decision to move into a new office space. Our new address will be: 160 NE Maynard Rd #210, Cary, NC 27513. We hope to be in the new space by the end of September. If you need to visit the Omega office during that time, we advise calling ahead to confirm our location. You can click here for directions from our office on Buck Jones Road to the new office on NE Maynard Road.
Payments should still be mailed to the address listed on your statement or coupons. All of our other contact information (including email addresses and phone/fax numbers) will remain the same. We appreciate your patience during this transition. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We’re about a month into spring, now, and we’re seeing all the telltale signs—azaleas in bloom, beautiful sunny days, and lush green lawns! In order to help keep our communities looking their best and really showcasing what a beautiful North Carolina spring is all about, here are some helpful lawn care tips:
Mowing – Cutting your grass every 5-7 days during the growing season (April-October) with a lawnmower is the best way to keep it healthy and attractive. A good height for grass is between 3-4 inches. Even if your grass is dormant during the hotter months, weeds continue to grow, and mowing helps keep them at bay. And don’t forget about that little strip of grass between the sidewalk and street. It’s called a devil’s strip, and it’s all yours!
Edging – Use an edging tool or weed whacker along all hard surfaces (driveways, sidewalks and curbing) at least once a month during the growing season.
Trimming – You can also use a weed whacker around your mailbox and house foundation when you mow.
Weed Control – If you notice any weeds popping up in your landscaping beds, you can purchase weed control spray from a local garden store. You can also pull weeds by hand to remove them. Either way is a great option to keep your landscaping beds looking great all season long.
Pine Straw/Mulch – Pine straw and mulch aren’t just decorative. While they do keep landscaping beds looking nice, they also protect the soil and root systems of the plants in the beds. It’s important to replenish your chosen ground covering at least once every year.
Most towns/cities in the Triangle area offer yard waste pickup. You can visit our Helpful Links section to find a link to your municipality for more information on the rules regarding yard waste pickup and disposal.
Omega Association Management, Inc.
Earns Top Industry Professional Credential
Raleigh, NC – December 1, 2014 —
Omega Association Management recently joined an elite group of community association management companies that have earned the Accredited Association Management Company (AAMC®) credential from Community Associations Institute (CAI). Omega is one of fewer than 250 management companies worldwide who have earned the highest level of professional recognition in the community association management field.
CAI is an international organization dedicated to building better communities. More than 62 million Americans live in an estimated 315,000 association-governed communities.
To earn the AAMC credential, a management company must have three years of experience in community association management and at least 50 percent of its managers must have earned professional designations.
“Professionals who earn CAI credentials maximize the value they can provide to their community association clients,” said CAI Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Skiba, CAE. “Not only have these professionals demonstrated a personal commitment to self-improvement, but they have also elevated their practical knowledge and expertise. That’s what all community associations need, and what board members and residents deserve.”
Professional managers provide administrative, operational and managerial counsel to community association boards. Managers typically are responsible for managing budgets and contractors, directing association personnel and overseeing compliance with association covenants and restrictions.
CAI and its 60 chapters work on behalf of the professionals and volunteers engaged in the management and governance of homeowner and condominium associations, cooperatives and other planned communities. CAI’s 31,000-plus members include community association volunteer leaders, managers, management companies, and businesses that provide products and services to these communities.

Autumn is a beautiful time of year in North Carolina, especially in and around the City of Oaks. While the trees turn colors, the weather cools down just enough for homeowners to enjoy spending time outside preparing their yards and homes for winter.
Unfortunately, this also means dealing with an abundance of fallen leaves, and that is never anybody’s favorite chore. To help, many of the local town and city governments offer complimentary loose leaf collection. For more information, find your town or city below and click the link for details on how to prepare your loose leaves for pickup, and when to have it all ready:
- Town of Apex
- Town of Cary
- Town of Chapel Hill
- Town of Clayton
- Town of Fuquay-Varina
- Town of Holly Springs
- Town of Knightdale
- City of Raleigh
- Town of Wake Forest
(UPDATE 12/16/14: Due to a higher than expected volume of leaves, the City of Raleigh updated their schedule. The link above will take you to the updated schedule.)
Properly disposing of your loose leaves and yard waste is important–not only for maintaining the aesthetics and home values in your community, but also for the safety of you and your neighbors. Wet leaves on sidewalks and roads pose serious risks, and can cause accidents that lead to injuries and property damage. Please help us keep your community both safe and beautiful by participating in the seasonal loose leaf collection. You can contact your city/town directly with any questions on the process.
The Omega office was a spooky sight this morning. From witches and bats to pup-kins and Uncle Si, everybody got into the Halloween spirit!
If you plan on going out tonight, here are some tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on how to stay safe. Remember to always contact the appropriate authorities in case of an emergency. You can find more specific information for your city or town on our Helpful Links page.
Have a safe and fun Halloween!
