About Us

We’re changing the game for condominium communities

Our Mission

“We exist to deliver the highest value, long-term solutions for condominium communities.”

A comprehensive and collaborative planning approach is the best way to deliver the highest-value, long-term solution. That’s why we’ve created a roadmap to deliver on the promise of worry-free condominium living. Our planning process empowers associations to make the right decisions for their community’s present and future.

Our Story

The beginnings of our work with communities date back to 1987 — the middle of the condominium building boom — when college student Fred Schernecker began a summer house painting business. By 1990, this business, now SPS, was a full-time endeavor servicing the exterior needs of condominiums.

The in-depth experience SPS gained during these early years working on the maintenance needs of hundreds of condominium communities built the foundation for a client-focused solution. We learned that spot replacement and a component-by-component approach are often ineffective and inefficient.  Responding to status quo requests wasn’t solving the root of the problem.

From this knowledge and a mission to create more value for homeowners, we devised a best-practice process to empower condominium associations. The resulting planning framework ensures the information is available to pursue the highest-value, long term approach.

Our Commitment to Condominium Communities

We’ve made it our mission to deliver the highest-value, long-term solutions for condominium  communities. The spirit of that singular aim is ingrained in everything we do at SPS. It’s at the core of our value-focused planning process to help guide communities to making the right decisions for the short- and long-term future of their homes. It drives how we create and sustain relationships with our clients by focusing on solutions to their biggest challenges. And it sets the tone for the values we uphold as we interact with each other, our clients, our partners, and our communities.

By prioritizing our mission and our process, we are redefining what it means to live in condominium communities. By 2030, we will save condominium homeowners $300 million through proper long-term planning.
