Staffing at Black Diamond Property Management

The labor shortage in the news has NOT affected us! We have turned the corner as of this Fall.

As many employers (including us) had turned to the youth in our valley these past summers we feel that we have done our part with training. Our youth did not have the industry knowledge, nor the work ethic that Black Diamond exudes. However, we have found our keepers and our goal is to continue with on-the-job training with our additions of Ana and Dave being their mentors next year.

Mariella, Todd, and the management team were stretched thin at times having to wear too many hats and being pulled in multiple directions between sales, communication, mentoring, training, administration, estimating, maintenance, human resources, accounting, and being in the field leading the work teams. Acknowledging this challenge we have addressed it. By investing in our infrastructure with Jobber and QuickBooks online, employee housing units increased benefits, and attracting new hires coming WITH industry experience we are poised and excited for 2022!

Black Diamond offers employee housing, Individual Health Care Reimbursement, phone stipends, retirement accounts with an employer match, competitive wages, time off benefits which include community service and paid volunteer hours, sick, vacation, personal and paid jury duty, etc., use of company vehicles and a great team environment!

We are an “Employer Of Choice” in our valley. Our employees are loyal to us and work full-time year-round.

Cinder Service

Let’s talk about something a little bit more relevant to the current season! Many people have been asking; “Why is there so much ice build-up this year?” The reason for the excess build-up of ice is due to the consistently cold temperatures. Without a warm day to melt some of the snow, we do not have an opportunity to clean up the slush that typically forms in the driveways and parking lots. Things can get very slick with these weather conditions but we have a solution! Black Diamond has a commercial cindering machine that we use for these conditions. Cinders provide additional traction on icy and slick surfaces! Cinders are volcanic rock and they are environmentally friendly. They break down over time and they do not adversely affect the landscape or property. They are much safer and healthier for the environment than snowmelt.

Yeti is a part of our Black Diamond Fleet!

Friendly Reminder if you are using snowmelt: Remember when spreading salt and snowmelt on your sidewalks and steps, be careful not to spread the product to the edge of the pavement or flagstone. Salt and snowmelt bleeds into the soil and that affects the soil in a negative way and could have an adverse effect on the health and growth of your landscaping.

We Are Open for Business!

We Are Here for You!

From all of us at Black Diamond, we hope you and your loved ones are healthy and well. Black Diamond would also like to inform all of our clients that we are open for business.

How Are We Keeping You Safe?
As an organization, we are following all of the recommended protocols of social distancing and employee safety at work. Our business is unique and it allows our employees to work alone or in some cases, with the person they reside with. A few of our employees are roommates, so they might be seen together working in the field. Our employees are also taking extra safety precautions when they are working on or around your home. Our employees are wearing disposable rubber gloves and ventilation safety masks when they perform property inspections. We are also assigning only one person to each property, to conduct the weekly property checks. This consistency is part of our thoughtful approach to making sure your property is taken care of with health and safety in mind. For more information about COVID-19, please visit the CDC’s website.

Ever-Changing Weather
As we transition from winter to spring, most people know from living in Colorado, our weather patterns can change in an instant.  Black Diamond is committed to maintaining our snowplow clients’ homes as well as prepare them for the spring season.  It is extremely important to have your property accessible and safe, especially if you require medical, mechanical, plumbing or any other services to access your property.

Thinking Ahead
Spring is upon us and it is time to start thinking about lawn care.  If you are an existing lawn care client, we had such an early snow season that many of your lawns were unable to receive the full fall clean up that is required to maintain a healthy lawn.  With the unseasonable warm temperatures, we are planning (as are many other landscape companies) to start with our spring cleanups.  If you are existing summer services client, we plan to care for your grounds as we have in years past.  Places that did not receive the attention needed in the Fall, will be placed as a priority on our Spring cleanup list.  If you are not an existing summer services/ground maintenance client, we would appreciate the opportunity to bid for your lawn care services. 

We offer a wide variety of services and we would be happy to provide you with an estimate.  Please call Mariella at 970-471-1831 or Todd at 970-331-2339 to schedule an onsite estimate

Black Diamond is a full-service property management company that takes pride in providing exceptional service that is Thoughtful, Efficient and Productive.  We look forward to working with you for your homecare, lawn care, snow removal, and property management needs.
