Harold WardPresident

Harold Ward has been with Paul Associates for over 25 years as a property manager and technical director.  His extensive knowledge of the physical aspects of  buildings makes him an expert at contractor oversight, and contract negotiation.  Harold is a licensed general contractor and master electrician, with in-depth experience in diagnosing physical problems. He devises permanent, creative and cost-effective solutions.  His  knowledge enables him to derive realistic and accurate operating budgets and reserves schedules.

Harold has a long history of taking on communities that have physical and/or financial challenges. These communities needed serious help; with Harold’s careful financial planning, attention to physical maintenance, and long term vision, these communities are now well maintained and financially strong.

We’ll be there at the worst of times – and put you back on the path towards the best ones.

Emergencies don’t always happen during business hours. That’s why we believe in showing up when it matters most – during the worst times, and the best. Our team treats each property as if it were their own, bringing a personal touch to each community we work with. Our toolboxes are filled with state-of-the-art solutions and technologies – but you won’t find a single bandaid. You see, we’re not big on shortcuts – we’re big on impact. We address problems head-on with effective solutions to ensure the longevity of any property.

Client Success Story

On December 16, 2013 I received a call at home shortly after 5:00 p.m. that there was a fire in the building. I started calling Board members trying to get an assessment of what was needed before leaving to return to the building. When I reached the Board president she informed me that she was standing on the sidewalk with Harold Ward and another property manager from Paul associates and she would call me back. About 45 minutes later the President of the Board called back to tell me to stay home, I would be needed more in the morning. Paul Associates had already contacted the insurance company and had a restoration company en route.
