Davie, FL, September 23, 2014 –(PR.com)– For many condominium and homeowner associations saving money while selecting the best Cable TV, Internet and Phone service options has become more important than ever. In keeping with its commitment to support residential associations, Broadband Agreement Specialists, Inc. has expanded its programs nationwide in order to help associations and their property managers solicit, evaluate and negotiate service agreements. The programs also aim to help associations better understand the opportunities and pitfalls of the new technologies associated with the proposed “bulk” and “non-bulk” Cable TV, Internet and Phone service contracts.
In the past, local telephone companies provided telephone services and local cable companies provided cable television services. That was it. But in recent years, this scenario has changed dramatically. Regulatory changes, new technologies and increased competition from cable, satellite and telephone companies have created new opportunities and confusion. Telecom providers are experts in their field, and they represent their own interests. The key for an association is to have knowledgeable professionals representing their interests.
Many associations and their managers negotiate new and renewal agreements on their own, reviewed by association legal counsel. “We believe that there’s a better way,” stated Jay Abbazia, President of Broadband Agreement Specialists, Inc. “The problem is, no matter how good an association believes they may be with negotiating an agreement, they generally leave some money on the table. One reason for this is that there isn’t a simple guide on the Internet that states what the local cable and phone companies are charging for bulk cable/video, Internet or phone services in a given market. After the association requests and negotiates several revised proposals, it is reasonable to assume that the deal is as good as it gets. That may or may not be the case,” Abbazia added.
Broadband Agreement Specialists, Inc. is an independent, unbiased telecommunications consulting firm that represents the interests of the association, and works to save money on competitive Video, Internet and Phone options for their communities. “Our representation and negotiation services are typically provided on a contingency-fee basis, which is pay-for-performance. If we do not save the association money or obtain financial incentives on their behalf, we do not earn any compensation fees. In some cases we have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for associations over their previously negotiated agreements,” Abbazia commented. In addition, for associations that want to get their best and final deal on their own, Broadband Agreement Specialist has a program to review the proposal deal points at no obligation. If the company believes that they can potentially negotiate more favorable deal points, they will consider representing the association under an alternate contingency-based fee program. Throughout the representation process, the company advises that it is important that associations review any and all agreements or legal documents with qualified legal counsel for an accurate and legally reliable evaluation of their rights and obligations. Broadband Agreement Specialists, Inc. is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice.
“Saving as little as $1.00/month/unit for a 200 unit association can add up to over $25,000 over the life of a 10-year bulk cable agreement. That’s a lot of money, and our respectful working relationships with the cable, telephone and satellite companies helps us to save substantial amounts of money for our clients. It’s a great feeling when we negotiate financially favorable deals, and our clients are quite pleased as well,” Abbazia added.
