Valley East Homeowners Association loves its manager. Sally has been working at the community for more than a decade, has guided the board and the association to its most successful years, and has a great rapport with owners. When the nearby Mountain West Homeowners Association board begins searching for a new manager, its first call is to Sally. Joe, Mountain West’s board president, used to live at Valley East and knows just how great an impact Sally can have. He also happens to be familiar with all the details of Sally’s current compensation and benefits package. Joe is prepared to significantly improve Sally’s pay, but Valley East doesn’t want to let her go so easily.
Should Mountain West and Valley East get into a bidding war for Sally’s services? Is a top-notch manager like Sally replaceable? Or should Sally just state her preference in communities?
