Community in the Spotlight
Every month our Support Team nominates an association that they feel are using the AtHomeNet website services in a special way. Be sure to visit often for great ideas you can implement in your own association!
This Month's Spotlight Community is Sterling Oaks Community Association
Sterling Oaks, a premier tennis and clubhouse community located in beautiful Naples, FL, broke ground on their association in 1996 and now offers a 10,000 square foot clubhouse with 736 distinctive homes, condominiums, and coach homes nestled in 250 acres - 100 of which are protected preserve land. Sterling Oaks offers two AtHomeNet web sites, one for the owners, and one specifically for their tennis facility.
The residents have plenty to keep them active with pristine natural settings for joggers, cyclists and skaters; while the junior Olympic-sized pool and adjoining Cabana Bar and Grill are available for gathering with your neighbors to enjoy the sunny southwest Florida weather.
Seasonne Hayes, a staff member and web site administrator says their web site is used to highlight the many community activities and clubs such as bridge, mahjong, fitness classes, an art studio and more! Homeowners also take advantage of advertising their homes for lease on the site and accessing the member directory. Sterling Oaks staff uses the site to post all of the meeting minutes and important documents.
The tennis web site highlights their full service tennis complex consisting of 12 state of the art Har-Tru courts where tournaments and special events are held throughout the year. Online, you can find information to connect with the tennis pro about a lesson or clinic; and the Pro Shop takes care of all your apparel and accessory needs. According to Seasonne, "On the tennis web site you can find a live camera of our stadium court so members who are away from town can watch our tennis exhibitions. They also look at this camera to find out how the weather is and the tennis website is used to promote all our tennis events!"
"Sterling Oaks is always evolving" says Seasonne. "We are striving to make our website our number one mode of communication. Although we have management onsite five days a week, members are learning that they can use the website 24/7 to answer a lot of their questions."
We want to thank Sterling Oaks and congratulate them as our Community in the Spotlight!
